Calling All Readers
What would you like to see in future editions of JCDA?

I’d like to know what you think should be covered in the pages of your national dental journal.

Can you suggest a clinical question that you would like to have answered? What oral health topic(s) do you have a strong opinion about? Can you suggest any people or projects in your community whose story should be shared with your national colleagues?

Please submit your ideas. Thank you for working with me to make JCDA a true reflection of the interests and needs of our profession.

John P. O'Keefe
