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.

Patients who were receiving root canal treatment completed a questionnaire immediately before treatment . Practitioners completed a questionnaire before beginning the root canal and a different one after obturation.
Practitioners completed a questionnaire before beginning the root canal and a different one after obturation. Patients who were receiving root canal treatment completed a questionnaire immediately before treatment, one immediately after treatment, and another questionnaire one week following treatment.

[This was a case-control study done in the three CONDOR networks collectively]
[This was a retrospective cohort study done in DPBRN only and was a separately funded study using a different study sample]
Materials that were used for DPBRN’s first network-wide meeting of practitioner-investigators from all five of its regions are available here. This meeting took place in Atlanta, GA from May 15-17, 2008.

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.
Two tables accompany this article. The first table shows practice characteristics of practices with and without follow-up data in the Dental Tobacco Control.net clinical trial. The second table shows pre-intervention patient-reported provider performance.
