List of journal titles in which the network has published

The network has published its research in a total of 39 different peer-reviewed scientific journals. These journals comprise a wide range of scientific disciplines. 

The Texas Dental Journal and Northwest Dentistry also have asked to re-publish several network articles. However, we do not count these as peer-reviewed publications; instead we include them in the list of non-peer-reviewed articles.

Two tables accompany this article. The first table shows predisposing, enabling, and need characteristics of persons in the sample, by race. The second table shows a “parsimonious” regression of receipt of extraction or root canal treatment during follow-up, in which only two variables (worst periodontal attachment loss and the CHOICE variable) are modeled as predictors of this outcome. The model fit of this regression model (Model 3 in the table labeled A2) is statistically the same as the model fit in Model 2 of the same table.
