Corresponding author Dr Saoirse O’Toole commented: It was a pleasure to publish in the British Dental Journal alongside other respected authors in my field. I was delighted at the reach of the article and thank the BDJ team for helping to bring awareness to the condition of erosive tooth wear. The submission process was very quick and the editorial team were helpful in their communications. I would not hesitate to publish in the BDJ again.
