William Giannobile Begins JDR Editorship
In December 2009, AADR and IADR announced that William Giannobile was selected as the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Dental Research. Giannobile began his term in April 1, and is the successor to Anthony ‘Tony’ Smith, who served as the JDR Editor-in-Chief from 2004-2010.

Giannobile is a William K. and Mary Anne Najjar Endowed Professor of Dentistry and the Director of the Michigan Center for Oral Health Research at the University of Michigan School of Dentistry. There, he is also Professor of Biomedical Engineering at the College of Engineering. He was appointed as the JDR Editor-in-Chief after an extensive international search process.

New Manuscript Submission and Review System for the JDR
The International and American Associations for Dental Research are pleased to announce the Journal of Dental Research launched a new manuscript submission and review system on March 22. This new system is SAGEtrack, a SAGE branded product of ScholarOne, a Thomson Reuters business. The new manuscript system allows for easier upload and faster review and publication times. As the first step, we request that you login to the SAGEtrack system and update your profile. Your participation by selecting keywords and updating your contact details will create a more robust system. The JDR depends on quality submissions and reviews to keep the Journal a leader in the field.

If you have submitted a manuscript prior to March 22, and are awaiting a decision, you will continue to receive messages from the site you submitted. However, all new submissions and revised manuscripts will now be processed through the SAGEtrack site. We are working to move all existing manuscripts to the new site, thank you in advance for your patience during this transition. If you have any questions please contact Norm Hayden, IADR/AADR publications coordinator.

The online JDR features innovative technology that includes RSS feeds and social bookmarking to enhance your reading and sharing experience. In addition, the online JDR offers OnlineFirst, a feature commonly known as “publish ahead of print” by which forthcoming articles are published online before they are scheduled to appear in print. Visit the online JDR and view the Most Read and Most Cited JDR articles.

Health Reform Passes

On March 23, 2010, President Obama signed into law comprehensive health reform, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (H.R. 3590). Building on a year's work from the House and the Senate, the final health reform legislation that the President signed into law included the best ideas from both sides of the aisle offered in the course of the debate. Health reform will make health care more affordable, make health insurers more accountable, expand health coverage to all Americans, and make the health system sustainable, stabilizing family budgets, the Federal budget, and the economy.
