IADR and AADR announced 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.
