What are the hottest topics in endodontics today?

Dear colleagues,

I have just received an email alert from the Journal of Endodontics with a list of the top 15 articles that were downloaded from the online version of that prestigious publication in 2012. Below, you will find links to the Medline abstracts of these 15 articles. In the top right hand corner of each abstract there is a link to the website of the publisher, where you can purchase the full text of any of these articles. I hope you find this information useful to your practice.

    Thanks for the list of top 15 articles from JOE. However, something more useful would be the actual article – perhaps the CDA could purchase (I’m sure for a reduced cost), a subscription to this articles for even 30 days.

    The blogs are the best idea the CDA has had in a very, very, very long time.
