Calling all readers
What would you like to see in future editions of JCDA? Let me know what you think should be covered in the pages of your national dental journal. Do you have a clinical question you would like answered? Is there a dental-related news item you would like to share with your colleagues? Do you have a strong opinion about a particular oral health topic? Please email me your ideas. Let’s work together to make JCDA a true reflection of the interests and needs of our profession.
