Should you have concerns with the compatibility between your word software and that of Oral Health’s, simply save your file as raw text (i.e., Text Only files, ASCII text files, etc.)
The quality of the line drawings and photographs supplied contribute directly to the quality of reproduction in Oral Health. Therefore, when making a submission, please consider the following:

Any artwork submitted on disc should be MAC compatible, and should be saved at the highest resolution possible (266 pixels per inch or greater). We cannot accept any digitized photographs/illustrations that have been created in a word processing, spread sheet or presentation package such as Microsoft Office, Powerpoint or Corel Office Suite.
Each illustration provided by the author should be identified and described by a short caption; and this list of figures should follow at the end of the article.
