Dental World Editor
History of the Dental World publication
Dental World is the successor to the Journal of the Pierre Fauchard Academy which was published during World War II primarily for PFA members in the Armed Forces of the United States. In 1978 and 1979 Dental World was published under the title of PFA Newsletter. In 1980 the title of Dental World was readopted and it is the official publication of the Pierre Fauchard Academy. Published quarterly in 2010, it includes news of the Academy, its Foundation, and its Regions and Sections in the United States and abroad, news of individual members throughout the world, announcements of meetings, abstracts of selected articles from the world of dentistry with comments, reviews of books written by PFA members, and occasional editorials. The Dental World appears four times a year within the pages of the Dental Abstracts which is distributed bimonthly as part of membership benefits for Fellows of the Academy.
