Greetings from the team of bujod….

We welcome you to our next issue of Bhavnagar University's journal of dentistry

This is our last issue for the year 2013, at this point I am happy to announce our new initiative PHOTOESSAYS.

Photo-essay is simply a collection of images that are placed in a specific order to tell the progression of events, concepts and emotions. It is widely used in the field of photography as photo essay takes the same story telling techniques as in a normal essay translated into visual images It's like a series of pictures… that says a thousand words….

Dentistry is as we all accept a combination of art and science, more so science being our ability to observe and detect abnormalities, variations, and pathologic changes is an integral part of our profession.

Digital technology techniques are soon making a wave in dental science be it -----digital radiology, digital imaging, digital scanning (CAD CAM), software's related to treatment planning, shade matching to impressiong techniques, digital documentations includes videos, educational fields in for of webinars and many more soon we are to see paperless offices in our country….

Photography and imaging have been a part and parcel in our field and through this photo-essay we are making an attempt to keep up with the recent advances and rapidly developing digital technology and making it a part of our publication.

Photo-essay's aim at highlighting the importance of utilizing the appropriate technology, which is specific for certain conditions and the value of documentation.

Very few dental journal have this as a part of their index, hence I hope that this new development would be a trendsetter.

Wising our readers a happy new year ahead… 2014
