As a busy dental professional, you may not have a lot of time each day to get caught up with the latest news in your industry. You may have to rely on word-of-mouth among your dentist friends or hear about the newest technology at conventions and meetings. It may seem like you are always behind the trend when it comes to treating patients.
Rather than always be out of the loop, you can get caught up with the newest information for your profession by reading the back and current issues of industry publications. You can subscribe to a professional journal devoted to oral surgery, clinical dentistry, and general practice online today.
Getting Updates from Your Peers
The publication that you can subscribe to online is one that utilizes peer-reviewed articles and information. All of the articles in the journal are written by people who are either current or retired dental professionals like you.
The information they share with you is based on their own experiences and experiments in treating patients. Some of the information also comes from academic discoveries in medical school. Regardless, it all comes from people who are in the same line of work as you and face the same challenges when it comes to treating patients. You can use their insight to gain perspective on your own career as a dentist and improve the way you treat your own patients.
Making Your Own Contribution
When you have a discovery you would like to share with peers, you can submit your own articles to the journal. The journal’s website offers an editorial guideline that you can follow when writing and submitting your own articles. If the journal editors like your contribution, it could be published in the upcoming editions of the publication.
Peer-reviewed articles can help you stay on top of trends in your profession. You can use the insight and advice of your peers to better treat your own patients. You can also submit articles of your own when you have valuable information you would like to share with your fellow dentists.
