Authors are encouraged to write with as few words as feasible. The Journal of Dentistry's house style demands that articles be organized in the following order: Title, abstract, introduction, materials and methods, results, discussion, conclusions, acknowledgments, references, tables, and figures.
An article can have only one title, but it can include multiple sections. Authors should not use titles as chapter headings. They can be used as keywords for searching articles on JODoCT, which may help readers find relevant articles.
Abstracts are brief descriptions of an article's content designed to attract readers' attention. They should be concise and accurate. They should also be written in a manner that will make them appealing to those who are not familiar with research papers. For example, if the study examined the relationship between teeth color and blood types, then the abstract might simply state "Tooth color is related to blood type." In contrast, a more detailed abstract might read: "Dental implants had no effect on blood type because there was no difference in success rates based on blood type." Again, the goal is to provide enough information for others to want to read the full paper.
Introduction/Purpose/Rationale. This section is meant to give readers insight into why they should care about what is being studied.
Your personal statement is a one-page essay (no more than 4,500 characters, including spaces, carriage returns, digits, letters, and so on) that provides dental schools with a clear image of who you are and, more importantly, why you want to pursue a career in dentistry. Remember that dental schools are interested in the real you. They want to know what makes you laugh, cry, and scream at the television; what hobbies you have; and most important, whether or not you have faced adversity in your life and how you overcame it.
In addition to your personal statement, you will need to include a writing sample in your application file. This can be an article you have written for publication or a speech you have given. The sample should be no longer than 5 pages, including footnotes and citations. If you do not have any samples you can simply say so in your application. Then, if invited, you can send them later.
Finally, you will need to submit a transcript of all grades earned at all colleges attended. This includes community colleges as well as universities. You cannot apply without submitting all required documents. Even if you think you have nothing to worry about, it is best to be safe than sorry. If you don't submit your documents, you won't be considered for admission.
When mailing applications, make sure to follow all instructions carefully. Failure to do so could result in your application being returned by the admissions office.

Thank you for your time and attention.
The majority of the research and substance are found in the article's body. It should be organized into sections depending on the main points made by the author. These sections should be labeled accordingly using subheadings to provide more detail about each section.
The title should also act as a guide for the reader as to what they can expect from reading the article. In other words, the title should catch the reader's attention and make them want to know more about the topic.
Generally, an article is expected to have from one to four paragraphs in length. Any longer or shorter than this would be considered too long or short, respectively. However, there are no specific numbers that define "too much" or "too little" content within an article.
Lastly, it is important that an editor adds their own personal style to an article. This will help create a unique writing experience that matches the voice of the journal. For example, if the journal uses a sports terminology bias, then an editor should include these terms in their article to match this tone being set by the journal.
