The aim of this journal is to disseminate knowledge and to promote discussion through the publication of peer-reviewed, high quality, scientific papers and other material on all topics relating to oral health and the dental management.
Its scope includes all aspects of dentistry, when they are viewed from a dental public health and health services management perspective. Topics may include: preventive dentistry, paediatric dentistry, community dentistry, geriatric dentistry, orthodontics, oral pathology, orthodontics, TMJ disorders, implantology, cariology, periodontology, epidemiology, health services research, practice management and the development of systems and education to deliver oral health care.

Authors are encouraged to submit papers based on new findings from original data collection or new analyses of existing data. However, systematic reviews, other critical analyses and reports will be considered for publication.

*Unofficial 2013 Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2011 and 2012 with the number of times they are cited in 2013 based on Google search and the Scholar Citation Index database. If ‘X’ is the total number of articles published in 2011 and 2012, and ‘Y’ is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2013 than, impact factor = Y/X
