Social media, like Facebook and Instagram, are such powerful channels to convey knowledge due to accessibility and user-friendly interface. However, there are no gatekeepers to validate posted scientific content. Scientific journals, on the other hand are closely monitored and reviewed to provide trusted research studies from eligible researchers and institutes. However, many of them have paywalls that limit the accessibility to such accountable resources. Non-academic dental practitioners are always encouraged to update their scientific knowledge and upgrade their practice to provide their patients with better dental service.  In this lecture, we will share simple guidance to discriminate between what is scientific and what is not within available, accessible resources. This will help the audience to avoid polarization, exploitation and to effectively communicate their voice to scientific community for mutual benefit.
