            Article and Photo Submission Policy



The North Carolina Dental Gazette (Gazette) is a quarterly publication of the North Carolina Dental Society, and is distributed to dentists, dental office personnel, and other stakeholders. The editorial staff of the Gazette welcomes article and photo submissions from interested organizations and individuals and will make every effort to include submissions in a timely fashion.  Please note, however, that inclusion of articles, editorials, letters to the editor and photos is at the sole discretion of the Gazette’s editorial staff.

The submission deadlines for all materials and issue themes are as follows:

Fall Issue – August 10 (Membership)
Winter Issue – November 10 (Legislative)
Spring Issue – February 10 (Community Outreach)
Summer Issue – June 10 (Annual Session)

Submissions are due by close of business – 5 p.m.  If the 10th falls on a weekend or a holiday, the deadline will be the next business day.  To ensure adequate notification of Gazette submission deadlines, an email will be sent to our standard authors’ list 30 days prior to each issue’s submission deadline.  A second reminder will be sent 10 days prior to the deadline.

To ensure Gazette publication dates are met these are firm submission deadlines. Materials received after the submission deadline will not be included.  However, when appropriate, we will make every effort to publish the materials in the next scheduled Gazette.

To submit materials to the Gazette, please email them to

Please attach all materials to the email and be sure to include captions or cutlines with photographs.  Photographs must be in one of the following formats:  JPEG, TIFF, PNG, PDF, and must have a minimum resolution of 300 DPI.  Please do not mail hard copies of materials; only electronic submissions will be accepted.  If you are submitting an article with a photograph to come at a later date or vice versa please indicate that in your email and include the date you expect to send the remainder of the submission.
