The purpose of this research was to assess the quality of information on dental traumatic injuries in children, available for the Portuguese speaking population, on the WWW. A web search was performed using Google'sR search engine and the keywords: "Traumatismo de dentes" AND "Crianca", "Perda de dentes" AND "Crianca", "Fratura de dentes" AND "Crianca". The first 50 consecutive search results were assessed. Quality evaluation of websites was performed using HONcode Certification (Health of the Net Foundation) and DISCERN Quality Criteria for the Health Information Consumer. None of the websites evaluated had HON's accreditation (0%) and only 3 scored the maximum rating according to DISCERN criteria (6%). Results show that, although dental trauma presents high frequency among children, adolescents and young adults, there seems to be lack of quality information on this theme in Portuguese language, available on WWW.
