The original review was co-authored by one of my colleagues, which is very gratifying!
There are three articles in this issue written by Queen Mary staff: Dr John Buchanan writes about a study using a tongue protector for patients with burning mouth and Dr Simon Critchlow comments on a review of ceramic inlays. And I have written a commentary on a systematic review of ART failure rates.
