Updated diagrams for tooth namingEdit

I noticed that there don't seem to be any simple diagrams anywhere that show permanent & deciduous teeth and their names anywhere. I had to create one for a project I'm doing, so I'm uploading it here in case anyone wants it. I was thinking perhaps I could put it into https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FDI_World_Dental_Federation_notation ? Open to any suggestions.

Help needed: water fluoridationEdit

The article on water fluoridation would benefit from contributions from dental experts. This article is under regular attack. Especially welcome would be citations to textbooks, per WP:TERTIARY.--Smokefoot (talk) 23:52, 9 May 2020 (UTC)

Dentistry BarnstarEdit

 
For anyone who hasn't noticed yet, I made the Dentistry Barnstar on the 4th. I already added it @Wikipedia:WikiProject Dentistry/Participants. Jerm (talk) 01:19, 15 September 2020 (UTC)

User script to detect unreliable sourcesEdit

I have (with the help of others) made a small user script to detect and highlight various links to unreliable sources and predatory journals. Some of you may already be familiar with it, given it is currently the 39th most imported script on Wikipedia. The idea is that it takes something like

  • John Smith "Article of things" Deprecated.com. Accessed 2020-02-14. (John Smith "[https://www.deprecated.com/article Article of things]" ''Deprecated.com''. Accessed 2020-02-14.)

and turns it into something like

It will work on a variety of links, including those from {{cite web}}, {{cite journal}} and {{doi}}.

The script is mostly based on WP:RSPSOURCES, WP:NPPSG and WP:CITEWATCH and a good dose of common sense. I'm always expanding coverage and tweaking the script's logic, so general feedback and suggestions to expand coverage to other unreliable sources are always welcomed.

Do note that this is not a script to be mindlessly used, and several caveats apply. Details and instructions are available at User:Headbomb/unreliable. Questions, comments and requests can be made at User talk:Headbomb/unreliable.
