Free issue of the PDJ

Our promotional offer of a free print copy of the Primary Dental Journal (PDJ) has now ended. However, if you would like to receive regular copies of the PDJ – the only peer-reviewed clinical journal dedicated to general dental practice and dental primary care – you can join the College of General Dentistry or subscribe directly.

The Primary Dental Journal is the College’s quarterly, peer-reviewed member publication. Featuring clinical articles, editorials and updates from the College, the PDJ is a leading resource for all dental professionals working in primary care, and has as its Clinical Editor and Editor-in-Chief Igor Blum, Clinical Professor of Primary Dental Care & Advanced General Dental Practice at King’s College London.

Unique in its dedication to general dental practice, its general issues include a range of papers on a variety of topics of interest and relevance to the primary care dental team, and its themed issues explore subjects in depth and are guest edited by renowned experts in their field. Our recent themed issues have included Leadership and professionalism, Paediatric dentistry, Oral surgery, Digital dentistry and Aesthetic dentistry.

A comprehensive print, online and archive subscription is included with membership of the College. This is otherwise only available to academic institutions, and at a cost of £230 per year.

As well as having the latest print issue posted out to your home or practice every three months, this gives you searchable access to over 1,400 articles from 95 past and present issues of Primary Dental Journal and its predecessor publication, Primary Dental Care.

Membership of the College is available from £125 per year for dentists, from £83 for dental hygienists, therapists and technicians, and from £42 for dental nurses and those eligible for a concession, and includes a range of other benefits.

Alternatively, an annual print-only subscription can be purchased for £125, or single print issues from £41 (subject to availability), via Sage Publishing.
