IADR and AADR announce that 2019 marks the Centennial of the Journal of Dental Research (JDR) – the journal for dental, oral and craniofacial research! Over the last century, the JDR has been dedicated to the dissemination of new knowledge and information on all sciences relevant to dentistry and to the oral cavity and associated structures in health and disease. To celebrate, the JDR will feature a yearlong commemorative article series and a podcast series that highlights topics that have transformed dental, oral and craniofacial research over the past 100 years.

In honor of the JDR's Centennial in 2019, the IADR is highlighting members' perspectives on what the journal has meant to their careers and how it has helped transform dental, oral and craniofacial research over the past 100 years. 

IADR Member Harold Sgan-Cohen, a professor in public health dentistry at The Hebrew University - Hadassah, Jerusalem, Israel, takes a look back at the JDR's early focus and discusses how it has become an integral part of the dental profession.



IADR Member Nicholas Jakubovics, Associate Editor of the JDR, discusses a specific article that inspired him very early in his work and has continued to influence his research in oral microbiology over the past three decades.
