JDR Clinical & Translational Research – a new journal designed for IADR members and other oral health research leaders to publish their research and effectively translate their findings to those who need the information to deliver evidence-based prevention and care.

With a focus on the most relevant and pressing topics in the field of oral health, IADR/AADR’s new title, JDR Clinical & Translational Research, is a publication with a focus on translational knowledge that explicitly draws connections between diverse areas of research, stakeholders, policymakers and public interest.

JDR Clinical & Translational Research is an exciting new opportunity for IADR members and other oral health research leaders to reach practitioners and the public, and quickly impact oral health. Publishing important, groundbreaking original craniofacial, oral and dental research has always been the key to health science advancements; now, by translating that research into clear, quick clinical application, we can emphasize how findings benefit the community and provide well-defined, relatable information to policymakers.
