JADA Overview

No other journal has such wide appeal

Authoritative. Relevant. Dentistry's leading source in practice and science. The Journal of the American Dental Association. It's the flagship of ADA publications — the one dentists turn to when they need to know what's really going on in their profession.

Since its premiere in 1913, JADA has cornered the market in dental science publishing. No other journal commands the same respect. No other journal has such wide appeal.

JADA is the "must-read" publication for the practicing dentist, the dental researcher, the dental educator. It's the best-read journal in dentistry!*


With each monthly issue, readers get:

* Peer-reviewed original scientific reports on every conceivable dental subject.
* In-depth cover stories on the profession's hottest topics.
* Clinical articles by recognized experts.
* The latest in dental research and much more.

Continuing Education

The success of the CE program is apparent because thousands of our readers participate in our program monthly. Our CE course is valuable to our readers who are committed to learning from the primary resource in dentistry.
