"Success begins with information that builds knowledge."

Journal of Veterinary Dentistry (JOVD)

The Journal of Veterinary Dentistry (JOVD) is written for veterinarians, dentists, veterinary technicians/nurses, and dental hygienists who are engaged in veterinary dental and oral surgical practice. The JOVD provides a continuing education forum that can serve as a reference source in the veterinary office. It publishes articles that provide practical and scientifically sound information, covering not only the medical and surgical aspects of veterinary dentistry but also specific categories including anatomy, restorations, crowns, endodontics, orthodontics, periodontics, laboratory animal dentistry, and dental and oral biology as they relate to clinical practice. FVD or EVDS membership includes a subscription to the JOVD.

Frontiers in Veterinary Science (FVS)

Frontiers in Veterinary Science is an open access journal whose section Veterinary Dentistry and Oromaxillofacial Surgery is devoted to the publication of high-quality research that contributes to the body of knowledge and/or the evidence-based practice in veterinary dentistry (oral anatomy, developmental and acquired conditions, oral medicine, oral pathology, periodontology, endodontics, prosthodontics, orthodontics, and other tooth-related and oral cavity diseases) and oromaxillofacial surgery (tooth extraction, tumor surgery, palatal defect repair, maxillofacial fracture management, and temporomandibular joint and salivary gland pathology).
