The ANZJDOHT is the official journal of Australian Dental and Oral Health Therapist Association (ADOHTA) and Te Ohu Pūniho Ora o Aotearoa, the New Zealand Oral Health Association (NZOHA ) and is the product of a merge of the ADOHTA and NZDTA journals, both of which had been individually published for over 20 years prior to the merge.
