Hello bluemangroup-ga,

Before I get started on this, I would like to know how many clips you
would consider enough for this question to be considered answered?

By usable, do you mean that you intend to use this in a commercial
product? In that case, there will be very little, if any, free footage

Please let me know, I look forward to your response!


Clarification of Question by bluemangroup-ga on 21 Aug 2006 11:25 PDT

if you found 1 or 2 clips for each of our descriptions, our question
would be answered. We are willing to pay for this footage, we just
havent been able to find a footage house with the content we need.

Hello bluemangroup-ga

I am not sure about which kind of footage you are looking for but when
I enter a search for "dentistry videos" I found some interesting
results. I will list some of them here and leave it to your honesty to
tell me if this is what you are looking for (in which case I will post
this as an answer) or clarify so that I can better direct my search.

Some of the videos I found are ( you have
to register to see these but registration is free and painless) These videos are not free

Here there is a list of sites in the UK that have medical footage

more dental footage here

and here

and more here

Please let me know if any of this matches your needs if not we can look further


Clarification of Question by bluemangroup-ga on 21 Aug 2006 18:22 PDT

thank you so much for the swift response- unfortunately we've been to
a number of the sites that you mentioned and (i apologize for not
being specific enough earlier) although has the type
of footage we need, they only have extremely low resolution windows
media or flash videos, and we need them to be playable as downloadable
quicktimes (or if there is some way to get the
videos on video tape from them...).

really the answer that we're looking for is ideally links to
quicktime-playable videos specifically of a drill drilling teeth, a
syringe injecting into gums, a tooth being pulled from the gums,
rather than simply links to sites with dental footage.

thanks again for the attention to our question, it is GREATLY appreciated!

Hello bluemangroup-ga

thank you for your clarification now I have a better understanding of
what you need. I have found these and it is only a start and maybe
they stilldon't match your need ( I couldn't find anything as simple
as a drilling or extraction ) but see if some of them could interest
(this might not work because it's animation)!64509@!0&ri=6&aspect=alpha&menu=search&source=!dial&ipp=20&staffonly=&term=tooth&index=FITW&uindex=&aspect=alpha&menu=search&ri=6!60663@!2&ri=6&aspect=alpha&menu=search&source=!dial&ipp=20&staffonly=&term=tooth&index=FITW&uindex=&aspect=alpha&menu=search&ri=6!56160@!3&ri=6&aspect=alpha&menu=search&source=!dial&ipp=20&staffonly=&term=tooth&index=FITW&uindex=&aspect=alpha&menu=search&ri=6!41094@!6&ri=6&aspect=alpha&menu=search&source=!dial&ipp=20&staffonly=&term=tooth&index=FITW&uindex=&aspect=alpha&menu=search&ri=6!52096@!1&ri=9&aspect=alpha&menu=search&source=!dial&ipp=20&staffonly=&term=dental&index=FITW&uindex=&aspect=alpha&menu=search&ri=9!40739@!6&ri=9&aspect=alpha&menu=search&source=!dial&ipp=20&staffonly=&term=dental&index=FITW&uindex=&aspect=alpha&menu=search&ri=9

I have also found something in the Huntley archives but this is
historical dentistry footage from the 1950/60 etc, I am not sure what
your purpose is so I don't know if that interest you.

I also sent an email to asking of their footage is
available in higher resolution and I'm waiting for an answer. I will
keep looking ....

This is it for now

I understand that not being able to see the content on line is a major
roadblock but you can still purchase one to check out the type and
quality and then return it within 30 days.

"For first sale event, we require prepayment - by check or credit card - but
thereafter, you have Preview Option, whereby you preview selections, then
return any you deem not suitable, and make payment for selections that you
retain. Also for a prepaid first sale, you have return and refund option for

In the meantime I will try again to contact dental-video and see if
they answer this time
