The project team found information about dental chemicals in a number of sources: Published reference textbooks; dental society journals (some of which are on-line); peer-reviewed technical research papers; government websites; vendor literature; and trade publications and websites.
A selection of these reference sources are highlighted here. The reader is cautioned that this listing is meant to be illustrative only. Inclusion or exclusion of a particular book, organization, website, or vendor is not to be interpreted as either an endorsement or non-endorsement by the project team or its sponsors.
We suggest the following strategy to anyone wishing to research a new area of dentistry:
 start with online searching;
 identify key authors, publishers, and dental society working groups that are active in your interest area;
 read the readily available web-published materials;
 develop a list of your unanswered questions;
 approach the key authors with these questions; and
 read the new materials that these sources recommend to you.
