Dear Friends,

“Science is the fuel of progress, in the clinical fields of dentistry, medicine, pharmacy and nursing!(1).” As the industrialization and technological advancement has adversely affected our environment and lifestyles that has manifested in new types of diseases and ailments, which poses a challenge not only to medical but also to dental fraternity. Hence one needs to do specialization and also acquire certain skills in advanced technologies, necessary to operate and use sophisticated equipment’s, which not only help in exact diagnosis of an ailing patient but also provide options to use non-invasive methods of treatment and also decrease mortality rates dramatically. Maximum improvement of health and relief from suffering within available resources should be our goal.

Oral health practice has now entered the era of "evidence-based" characterized by an increasing societal belief in many nations around the world that clinical practice should be based on scientific information rather than intuition or personal opinion. One of the criteria for moving up the hierarchy from one position to the next is engagement in research activity(1).

The ongoing liberalization of economy is expected to bring in better opportunities in terms of remuneration, research and working facilities. There is thus a clear need to set up innovative models and bring about qualitative changes and also needs to be shared among all professionals, which is not easy, but can be made easy through publications in International Journal of oral and maxillofacial pathology. It is believed that learning through reading is the best way and nothing substitutes reading, in the combination of reading materials, like books, magazines, newspaper, journals and also that of Internet.

Thus we the team of International Journal of oral and maxillofacial pathology, attempts to reach the goal of the authors and readers in fulfilling their quest for knowledge.
