Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

It is a privilege to invite you to submit your paper and present your research in the upcoming Special Issue “Molecular Diagnostics in Oral Diseases“, which will be considered for publication in Dentistry Journal.

Molecular diagnostics has revolutionized diagnostics by providing research, diagnosis, and treatment of many diseases at the molecular level of DNA, RNA or proteins, contributing to the molecular characterization of various diseases. Understanding the molecular pathogenesis of oral diseases based on the application of molecular diagnostics techniques with a goal to expedite diagnosis, prognosis, prevention and monitoring of disease or creating patient-based therapy presents particular challenges in dental medicine. 

This Special Issue addresses a wide range of oral diseases and their molecular characterization based on the analysis of oral tissues and oral fluids using standard molecular genetics and -omics technologies.

The purpose of this issue is to create a platform to present new information and expand current knowledge about the molecular basis of oral diseases in order to pinpoint early variations and diagnosis, predict the course and enable personalized treatment by developing, applying and monitoring the impact of new drugs in the treatment and prevention of oral diseases.

To contribute to this rapidly developing field of oral diseases diagnostics, please refer to the keywords below to submit your research for this Special Issue.
