The American Journal of Public Health (AJPH), in collaboration with the Community Voices of the Satcher Health Leadership Institute, Morehouse School of Medicine, intends to publish a supplement issue on the topic of Addressing Age, Race/Ethnicity, Education, the Workforce, and Oral Health (In)Equity. Original epidemiological, social, and policy-oriented research articles, commentaries, perspectives, and critical reviews of major problems related to disparities in oral health and access to an oral health care home are invited. Papers should emphasize transformational service and educational programs as well as policies that reflect novel and substantive responses to persistent disparities in access to care, in dental education programs, and in access to dental education by underrepresented groups. Topics may include: innovations in the oral health care workforce; racial and ethnic diversity in the workforce consistent with the demographic changes of the nation; the impact of race/ethnicity and racism on access to oral health care; practice modernization and modification that responds affirmatively to the existing public and private payment realities; gaps in research, policy, and practice implications; best-practice models; and implications for leadership. Potential authors should visit the AJPH website (www.ajph.org) to review the Instructions for Authors and specific guidelines for the various types of manuscripts. All manuscripts will undergo standard peer review by the AJPH editors and peer referees as defined by AJPH policy. Manuscripts must be submitted to AJPH by November 1, 2016, via the online submission system at http://editorialmanager.com/ajph.
