We would like to encourage you to consider submitting your papers to Dental Hypotheses ( ).
Dental Hypotheses is an independent, international, open-access, peer-reviewed journal supporting academic freedom for presentation and criticism of new, challenging and thought provoking ideas in the field of dental sciences. The journal will consider radical, speculative and non-mainstream scientific ideas provided they are coherently expressed. Most dental journals will publish ideas only in papers which also report observations. As the best scientists have repeatedly emphasized, this gives a misleading impression of the process of discovery. Dental Hypotheses can therefore form a bridge between cutting-edge theory and the mainstream of dental scientific communication, which ideas must eventually enter if they are to be critiqued and tested against observations.
We are interested in publishing papers covering a wide range of topics pertinent to oral tissue engineering, nano-dentistry , biodontics, biomimetics, dental biomaterials, dental equipment, restorative dentistry, periodontology, endodontology, operative dentistry, prosthodontics, paediatric dentistry, orthodontics, implantology, cosmetic dentistry, oral and maxillofacial surgery, oral-general health relationships, dental economics, cariology, craniofacial genetics, community dental health and dental education. We can assure you of a prompt, courteous and constructive review process and, as an on-line journal, a world-wide audience.

What is the advantage to you of Dental Hypotheses?
• Full open access: everyone can read your article and you retain copyright in it
• Publishing decision within 4-6 weeks of submission
• Your paper will not be rejected due to lack of space and will be published immediately on acceptance
• Prompt and fair peer review from two expert peer reviewers
• Frequent updates on your paper's status
• Friendly responsive staff

In summary:
The advantages of a younger journal such as Dental Hypotheses are numerous but in essence allow us a greater flexibility and responsiveness to authors and readers that older journals cannot match.

Yours sincerely,

Editorial Team
