International Journal of Dental Science and Oral Health is a peer-reviewed, Open Access journal that publishes original research articles, review articles, and clinical studies in all areas of dentistry, including periodontal diseases, dental implants, oral pathology, as well as oral and maxillofacial surgery.

Healthy teeth, healthy gums are the keys to sustaining good oral health. With good health comes happiness. So oral health plays a major role in maintaining good health at every stage of life. Therefore there is an imminent need for people to take care of their dental health and find themselves in good health. 

Dental Health is essential for healthy living. A state of being teeth pain, oral and throat cancer, Oral Infection, Gum disease, tooth loss, and other diseases and disorders that limit an individual’s capacity in biting, chewing, smiling, speaking.
