It is an honor to serve as the guest editor for this Special Issue of Children entitled, “Advance in Pediatric Dentistry”. Pediatric dentistry is a specialty that involves concepts and adapts techniques and procedures not only from general dentistry and other dental specialties, but also from general medicine and other medical specialties. Pediatric dentists are required to treat a broad range of diseases in infants, children, and adolescents, including those with special healthcare needs. Pediatric dentistry as an art and science is continually evolving, and with the new developments and advancements in both the theory and practice of pediatric dentistry, achieving the goal of providing quality dental care is made attainable for all patients from birth to 18 years of age.
I am inviting you all to consider submitting your manuscripts to this Special Issue to showcase your research, clinical work, and practice-related findings to a global audience. Manuscripts adopting the following methodology are welcome:
- Quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods;
- Review articles: Narrative and systematic with and without a meta-analysis;
- Case reports examining a single or multiple individuals or events occurring in real-life settings;
- Short communications presenting new ideas, concepts or early interesting research results;
- Clinical practice papers sharing experience from the clinic.
I seek to attract contributions from academics and practitioners from diverse professional backgrounds. As the title implies, this Special Issue is particularly open to new developments, unconventional, or inspirational contributions that help to move dentistry for children forward.
Please, if you have a tentative title of your contribution, I would very much appreciate receiving it. I would encourage all of you to share this call for papers with colleagues who might be interested.
Prof. Dr. Ziad D. Baghdadi
