Research Interest

(1) Dentofacial Trauma, (2) Dental Management of Cleft lip and Palate newborns, (3) Emerging Demand in Pediatric Dentistry for Office-Based General Anesthesia by Dentist Anesthesiologists. (4) Issues in International Dental Education.

1. How many years have you been associated with the current research?

Since 1980.

2. What is the research topic you are working on currently?

⇔The increase in use of Dental Anesthesiologists and IV sedation in the delivery of pediatric dental care in the private office setting;

⇔Dental management of oral and perioral trauma in the young permanent dentition;

⇔Educational and leadership success in higher education.

3. Do you have any research funding at present for your work (NIH or other national funding)?

I have obtained approximately 8 million dollars in external research / training grants but not at the NIH or national level. This funding generally came from State, Regional, University and Industry sources.

4. What is your greatest career accomplishment?

Thirteen years as a Departmental Chair and an additional thirteen years as a Dean. I also had the opportunity to complete a Robert Wood Johnson Oral Health Research Fellowship at Harvard University (1987-1989) and a United States Congressional Fellowship (2000) in Washington, DC with Senator Richard Luger.

5. How does the published scientific content assist the potential researchers?

It helps to provide a sound foundation from which to consider additional research to improve our knowledge.

6. When did you become an editor of Journal of Oral Health and Dental Management?

July 1, 2013.

7. What do you see as the job(s) of an editor in the scientific publishing?

⇔identify the best qualified, and currently active reviewers in the evaluation of manuscripts, as demonstrated by their review record;

⇔To identify new individuals to become active reviewers for the Journal;

⇔To respect the time requirements and make sure a potential reviewer is not burdened by multiple reviews at any given period of time;

⇔To critically evaluate each returned review for consistency in areas of concern and make reasonable recommendations to author(s) for corrections to strengthen the impact of their manuscript;

⇔To mediate the reviewers recommendations providing a concise and detailed list of suggestions for author(s);

⇔To critically evaluate each revised manuscript addressing each recommendation by the reviewers;

⇔To make the final decision for publication to the Journal Staff;

⇔To be held accountable for the final decision to publish the research.

8. What are the greatest challenges in this field?

There has been, and apparently continues to be, a rather dramatic increase in open access Journals across all aspects of the professions. Maintaining research excellence in reviewing quality research, a thorough and rigorous review process from accomplished peers and the ability to openly share research findings to those individuals interested in progress is essential.

9. What do you think are the attributes for a quality article?

See #8 above.

10. What are your suggestions for further improvement of the journal?

⇔Emphasize the need for the Authors, whose primary language is not English, to seek help in preparing their initial submission from individuals who have a strong command of the English language. This will facilitate the review process and increase the chances of a successful review of their work.

⇔Actively solicit potential reviewers to reduce the load of manuscript review for the present number we have. We are indeed fortunate to have the number of reviewers available that we do have. This is a time consuming process that competes with already very bust work schedules.

⇔Ask our present reviewers, once they have accepted the responsibility of review of a manuscript, to do so within the time limits requested by the Journal.

11. Do you have any patents filed for your research?


12. Have you contributed any editorials or papers (any type) to OMICS Journals in the past two years?


13. Do you plan to contribute any editorials or papers to OMICS Journals in the next few years?

Yes, an Editorial as my schedule permits.

14. How would you define your experience with OMICS Group?

The experience has been exceptional. I cannot praise the Journal Staff enough for their timely and professional attention to my questions with respect to the editorial process. I have had editorial assignments for several Journals in the past and this Staff is by far the best I have had the pleasure to work.

15. What is your opinion on conducting Editorial Board meetings at related Conferences to discuss future projections and existing issues?

I feel this is an excellent opportunity to have all the Editors and Staff available together for discussions on how to improve the Editorial process for the Journal. International travel is expensive and planning ahead with respect to such Conferences is essential for obtaining financial support to attend.

16. Would you recommend OHDM to your friends or colleagues?

Absolutely. I do on a daily basis as I communicate with professional colleagues in academic dentistry and related health care professions.

17. How do you differentiate Journal of Oral Health and Dental Management with other journals in the field?

As with all Scientific Journals, we strive to publish high quality, independent research that is methodically sound and reflects the best in contemporary research applicable for use in the treatment of the patients we serve. The Journal strives to evaluate research, and diverse research projects, from a wide variety of Countries and cultures. This is demanding on the editorial and support Staff to assure a fair and complete review of such a wide variety of research. I feel we make every effort to address individual researcher’s needs and facilitate the fair and complete review of all manuscripts submitted for publication in the Journal.
