Due to changes in the age structure of the population and an increasing proportion of people living to an older age, the number of seniors requiring dental care is continuously rising. The type of care required by geriatric patients will also shift increasingly in the future. This journal for geriatric dentistry covers the different aspects of dental treatment and care for elderly and old patients. It keeps the dental professional up to date on the latest scientific research findings and provides continuing education articles on geriatric patient care. The journal aims to provide a comprehensive source of information on dental science, geriatrics, and dental care to support its readers who are in daily contact with elderly patients. The journal has been inactive since the end of 2020.
