The influence and importance of roles played by the patient, public and/or their representatives at the forefront of modern-day healthcare are increasingly clear. Alongside the ability to provide feedback on experiences of dental care provision and influence development and commissioning of patient care services; the value of patients and the public in the design, conduct, interpretation and reporting of dental research should not be overlooked. Following in the footsteps of other areas of health and social care, there is increasing involvement of children and young people within dental research. Working alongside adolescents as ‘partners’ rather than ‘participants’, studies can be conducted using methods which are more acceptable to young people, provide outcomes of greater relevance and benefit to this cohort and have increased impact on future patient care. Guidance and recommendations support researchers to empower adolescents to have a greater say in the design and conduct of studies involving fellow young people. Reflecting upon experiences of working alongside adolescents in research design highlights difficulties academics and clinicians may face whilst also demonstrating both the expected and unexpected outcomes of involving young people as research ‘partners’.
