This bulletin updates you on the 3 component of JCDA Oasis

www.jcda.ca & www.jcdaf.ca
Oasis Help
Oasis Discussions

We would like to sincerely thank all dentists who submitted their clinical questions through our Oasis Discussions site and/or through email (oasisdiscussions@cda-adc.ca). Every question is important to us and we strive to quickly find an expert initial response that will help dentists in their everyday practice.

We are pleased to bring to you the first Oasis Discussions contribution of the Department of Pediatric Dentistry at the University of Toronto. More details in the Oasis Discussions section of this bulletin.

Note on process regarding your clinical questions

Once you send us your clinical question, you will receive an acknowledgement email. Then, a number of our expert clinical advisors are contacted to provide an initial response with possible further in-depth resources. Once a response is available, the JCDA Oasis Team posts it on the Oasis Discussions website. You will then be notified that a response to your question is available for viewing. All questions and responses are featured in the weekly JCDA Oasis Bulletin.

Please note, that you are welcome to submit your question anonymously; however, it will be difficult for us to notify you, when a response is available. You can always send your question to cguessaier@cda-adc.ca and it will only be viewed by the JCDA Oasis team.
