Letter from the editorial director

Feb. 17, 2011
FOCUS Editorial Director Maria Perno Goldie, RDH, MS, explains the purpose of RDH eVillage FOCUS newsletter, covers topics for upcoming issues, and seeks contributors for future FOCUS articles.

Thank you for reading RDH eVillage Focus.

I have received numerous comments and questions about our new, twice-monthly newsletter, and would like to address the nature of the publication. The purpose of the newsletter is to present science-based editorial that is clinical in nature, with references and links. We will have a general theme, and three to four topics per issue.

While products can be mentioned, the newsletter content is not meant to be an advertisement. If authors are discussing a certain technology and wish to mention products, we ask that all or most of the products in a particular category should be mentioned. We will not be able to mention all products in a given category all of the time.

I am seeking contributors for articles. Upcoming issues will focus on: CAMBRA; Hypersensitivity; Tooth Movement and Occlusion; Power Toothbrushes; Interdental Aids; Locally Delivered Antibiotics; Oral Cancer; Tobacco Cessation; Tooth Whitening; and other topics. I am also open to topic ideas, and even debating issues that are controversial in nature.

Let us hear from you, and thanks for reading!


Maria Perno Goldie, RDH, MS
