Guidelines for Fluoride Intake — Are They Appropriate?

0 3409

Alexandria, Va., USA – The appropriate use of fluoride has transformed oral health over the past 70 years, in part due to the guidelines created for fluoride intake. Recently, researchers are questioning these longstanding guidelines which served as advisory recommendations for decades. This issue of Advances in Dental Research, an e-Supplement to the Journal of Dental Research (JDR), presents the proceedings of a symposium at the 95th General Session of IADR in San Francisco, USA and includes reviews that critically examine the current guidelines for fluoride intake.

The PROSE Awards, given annually by the Professional and Scholarly Publishing Division of the Association of American Publishers, recognize the best in professional and scholarly publishing by bringing attention to distinguished books, journals and electronic content in 58 categories.

Statement by the American Association for Dental Research (AADR) on the President's FY19 Budget

0 1687

The American Association for Dental Research issued the following statement on President Trump’s fiscal year 2019 budget by the Association’s Executive Director Christopher Fox, DMD, DMSc.

Alexandria, Va., USA – The American Association for Dental Research is disappointed in the president’s fiscal year (FY) 2019 budget request released on Monday. While we are appreciative of the president’s call to invest in opioid-related spending, including medical research for addiction prevention and treatment and pain management — an area well-suited for dental researchers to contribute to the body of knowledge — and for the administration taking into account last week’s Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018, we remain concerned about the document’s proposals related to research funding and reorganization as well as the budget’s overall treatment of the non-defense discretionary portfolio.
