The Journal of the American Dental Association


Introduced in 1913, The Journal of the American Dental Association is the nation's premier dental journal-a reliable, peer-reviewed source of information on dentistry and dental science. Each monthly issue of JADA is available in print, online at JADA Online and via a mobile Web application. JADA Online provides full-text articles as an added member benefit from the current issue as well as a searchable archive dating to 1913.Yearly independent readership studies consistently rank JADA as the nation's best-read dental journal. And ADA members rank it as one of the most important benefits of membership.

What Does JADA Have to Offer?

Today's JADA offers a wide range of information for ADA-member dentists and its other readers around the world:

• peer-reviewed research on current and developing topics in dentistry;
• clinical information in such areas as biomaterials, pharmacology, and cosmetic and esthetic dentistry as well as general dental practice;
• reports on the increasingly important relationship between dental health and overall health;
• news and views on the issues of the day;

JADA's History

• 1913: the ADA-then known as the National Dental Association-introduced the quarterly Official Bulletin of the National Dental Association;
• 1915: the Bulletin was renamed The Journal of the National Dental Association.
• 1917: The Journal became a monthly publication.
• 1939: The Journal adopted its current title, The Journal of the American Dental Association.
• 1942: The Journal started twice-month publication.
• 1948: The Journal reverted back to monthly publication.

Through the decades, JADA has changed with the times and the shifting needs of its readers to continue to appeal to its primary audience: dentists in clinical practice. Each issue includes full-text articles on emerging research and in-depth reviews of cutting-edge clinical developments. JADA also provides editorials and features on ethical and practice issues that dentists encounter each day. The Journal also covers the latest industry news and updates on policies affecting dental practice.
