As we begin another yearlong effort, and a new website, I invite you to participate in the opportunity to exchange ideas and techniques. I know that many times a good case is found in the field that would make a worthy submission. The Journal's continued success depends on the active involvement and participation of its writers and readers. Equine dentistry is undergoing rapid advancement. The scientific research conducted worldwide, replaces hearsay with more and more evidence-based approaches to dentistry. The Journal of Equine Dentistry is committed to making this information accessible to practitioners. The Journal aims to streamline an ever-growing amount of data on the subject of equine dentistry into practical take-home information. As such, we would like to encourage researchers and practitioners to submit papers and case reports on equine dentistry.

Please join our team today! There are many sections to choose from, and your help would be greatly appreciated.

Cooperation of all parties involved is the key to attaining our goal of better serving the horse.
