Journal of Oral Rehabilitation has become the international journal of choice for much outstanding work in the field of dental and oral health sciences. The journal majors in publishing original comments and research in the area of dental science associated with the treatment of oral and facial functional disturbances caused by local and systemic diseases and developmental defects.

Aims and Scope

Journal of Oral Rehabilitation aims to be the most prestigious journal of dental research within all aspects of oral rehabilitation and applied oral physiology.   It covers all diagnostic and clinical management aspects necessary to re-establish a subjective and objective harmonious oral function. 

Oral rehabilitation may become necessary as a result of developmental or acquired disturbances in the orofacial region, orofacial traumas, or a variety of dental and oral diseases (primarily dental caries and periodontal diseases) and orofacial pain conditions. As such, oral rehabilitation in the twenty-first century is a matter of skilful diagnosis and minimal, appropriate intervention, the nature of which is intimately linked to a profound knowledge of oral physiology, oral biology, and dental and oral pathology. 

The scientific content of the journal therefore strives to reflect the best of evidence-based clinical dentistry. Modern clinical management should be based on solid scientific evidence gathered about diagnostic procedures and the properties and efficacy of the chosen intervention (e.g. material science, biological, toxicological, pharmacological or psychological aspects). The content of the journal also reflects documentation of the possible side-effects of rehabilitation, and includes prognostic perspectives of the treatment modalities chosen.

Basic sciences are developing rapidly in contemporary society, but it may take some time before important new knowledge finds its way into daily clinical practice. Good clinical science deals with the diagnosis and appropriate treatment of individual patients. We need well-educated dentists to identify the numerous unsolved questions relevant to oral rehabilitation, in order to stimulate clinical and basic sciences to provide scientifically documented answers. It is the intention of the journal to stimulate contributions, which may help to bridge the gap between relevant basic sciences and clinical dentistry.

The focus for the journal is to present original research findings; to generate critical reviews and relevant case stories, and to stimulate commentaries and professional debates in Letters to the Editor.   We will invite relevant commercial interests to engage in the journal in order to make it the international forum for debate between dental clinical dental clinical sciences and industry, which share a common goal: to improve the quality of oral rehabilitation.

Online submission and refereeing has been introduced. The quality of the refereeing will determine the standard of the journal and well-scrutinised manuscripts make the scientific content easier to assess.
