Dental Hygiene Portal: PubMed


PubMed is a product of the National Library of Medicine.  It is a freely available search tool for finding journal articles on dental hygiene as well as health, medicine and dentistry. It does not contain conference abstracts or conference proceedings. Link to PubMed through Health Sciences Library System and you will be able to obtain full text articles available from the library.
