Greetings!

Welcome to the third issue of the year 2015.

Ethical aspects are much discussed of late. It is the responsibility of the authors to stick to the ethical aspects as desired by the journals. Reviewers do point some form of publication and scientific misconduct in the publications. There is scope for debate in this regard.

Public Health Activities undertaken in various parts of the country are inspiring. Celebration of Public Health Dentistry Day - 19 th June - is a welcome addition to the Public Health Days observed in our country. Hope this day gets due recognition. Members are requested to mail the details of Public Health Activities in a Word Format and photographs in jpeg format for better quality outcomes. Furthermore, it is desirable that information reaches the Editorial office in time so that it can be published in the respective quarter.

In this issue, we have a wide range of research articles sprawling from Randomized Clinical Trials to cross sectional studies. However, it is observed that certain areas in research are more often studied than other areas. It is high time that our fraternity give a deep thought to this and explore newer areas that would be useful for our country. Systematic reviews are preferred to narrative reviews. Issues may be addressed under the category "Letter to the Editor." Furthermore, this forum could be used for discussion of article publishers.

Best wishes
