Call for Papers in JDR Clinical Supplement Oct. 15 is the Submission Deadline
The Journal of Dental Research is accepting manuscripts for its fifth supplement encompassing all areas of clinical research in the dental, oral and craniofacial sciences. This peer-reviewed supplement will bring emerging contributions in discovery and translational science to clinical application for the healthcare community.
Severe Periodontitis: Sixth Most Prevalent Health Condition in the World
The International and American Associations for Dental Research (IADR/AADR) have published a paper titled “Global Burden of Periodontitis: A Systematic Review and Meta-Regression.” The manuscript, by lead researcher Wagner Marcenes (Queen Mary University of London, Institute of Dentistry, Barts and The London School) is published in the OnlineFirst portion of the IADR/AADR Journal of Dental Research (JDR). 
 
Sleeping in Dentures Doubles the Risk of Pneumonia in the Elderly
Poor oral health and hygiene are increasingly recognized as major risk factors for pneumonia among the elderly. To identify modifiable oral health-related risk factors, lead researcher Toshimitsu Iinuma, Nihon University School of Dentistry, Japan, and a team of researchers prospectively investigated associations between a constellation of oral health behaviors and incidences of pneumonia in the community-living of elders 85 years of age or older. This study, titled “Denture Wearing During Sleep Doubles the Risk of Pneumonia in Very Elderly,” has been published by the International and American Associations for Dental Research (IADR/AADR in the OnlineFirst portion of the Journal of Dental Research (JDR).   
AADR Joins 300 Organizations Rallying for Medical Research
Last month, AADR joined more than 300 national organizations in support of the Rally for Medical Research. The purpose of the Rally is to call on our nation’s policymakers to make funding for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) a national priority and raise awareness about the importance of continued investment in medical research that leads to more progress, more hope and more lives saved.
Congress Approves Short Term Funding Bill
Last month, Congress approved a short term continuing resolution (CR) (H.J. Res 124) to fund the federal government at 0.0554 percent below fiscal year 2014 levels through December 11, 2014.  This legislation was overwhelming approved by a 78-22 vote in the Senate and a 319-108 vote in the House.  
Donate to Research


Dental research created a profession. In the early decades of the last century, investments in dental research moved a trade to a profession. From the fluoridation of public water supplies – a crowning public health achievement of the 20th Century – to high-speed handpieces, dental composites and ceramic restorations, periodontal diagnostics and therapeutics, and more biologic approaches to replacing lost tissues, it was the investments in dental research that defined us as a profession.
