About the Journal

The Journal of Veterinary Dentistry is the official publication of the American Veterinary Dental Society (AVDS), the Academy of Veterinary Dentistry (AVD), and the American Veterinary Dental College (AVDC) and is the journal of record in its field.

It is designed to be of interest to veterinary dental scientists, veterinarians, dentists, and veterinary or dental technicians who are engaged in veterinary dental practice.

Four issues are published each year - spring, summer, autumn, winter - that cover not only the medical and surgical aspects of veterinary dentistry, but also specific categories such as anatomy, restorations, crowns, endodontics, orthodontics, periodontics, and dental and oral biology as they relate to clinical practice.

The Journal welcomes articles, letters, news items, and announcements. All material should be sent to the editor using the guidelines set forth in the instructions to authors.
