If you have a clinical technique or a matter of clinical interest that works for you and you’d like to share this with other members, please consider publishing it in the News Bulletin. As an outcome of the last Readership Survey when members requested more clinical content in the publication, a regular feature was introduced in the form of an ‘Opinion page’. This is not meant to be a means of publishing a research paper as submissions will not be significantly peer-reviewed. However, authors may be called upon to elaborate on some aspect if letters of interest are received. Guidelines for submission for these articles are available from the News Bulletin office (email: firstname.lastname@example.org). All submissions will be referred to the Continuing Education Committee who will deem submitted material suitable or unsuitable for publication. Members are encouraged to send material of interest to Robert Boyd-Boland, Editor, News Bulletin, ADA Inc, PO Box 520, St Leonards 1590. Email: email@example.com
