Every month, the Journal of the Michigan Dental Association provides news, information, and features about Michigan dentistry to our state's oral health community and the MDA's 6,200+ members. It is the primary publication reaching Michigan dentists.

The July issue of the Michigan Dental Association (MDA) journal focuses on the member and public value of the association's Public Education Campaign through a cover story "Smile Brighter Michigan!". It also features articles on:

  • How to get value from your MDA membership

  • Joining the MDA Forensic Dental Team

  • A new professional column, News you need, an editorial and regular department articles covering MDA Foundation activities, MDA Services, and Staff Matters and a republished column for Dentistry and the Law

Clinical content featured in the July issue is a reprinted article from the New York State Dental Journal titled "Sinus Tract v. a Fistula" which discusses the clinical and histological differences between a sinus tract and a fistula.
