Le JM. In response to the editorial “Meet the founding resident ambassador: John M. Le, DDS, MD.” J Diagn Treat Oral Maxillofac Pathol 2022;6(1):6.


It is an honor and privilege to accept the invitation to be the founding resident ambassador (Fig 1) for the Journal of Diagnostics and Treatment of Maxillofacial Pathology (JDTOMP), also known as DT Journal.1 I am excited to join an outstanding and diverse editorial board. In this new role, I aim to engage and recruit a diverse group of oral and maxillofacial surgery trainees from the United States and abroad to launch regular evidence-based discussions regarding the current therapies for maxillofacial pathology and advancements in oral and maxillofacial surgery. I hope to eventually create a board of resident advisors that will not only serve to promote DT Journal’s presence on social media, but also as peer reviewers. The requirements for the future of the program and its incoming resident members will include the following:


  1. Promotion of and sharing of issues published by the journal on social media outlets (i.e.., Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn) using #dtjournalorg and #jdtomp.

  2. Creating and sharing posts on one’s social media page as it relates to DT Journal using #dtjournalorg and #jdtomp.

  3. Contributing to the journal by submitting an article of choice for peer review within two years of becoming a member.

  4. Serve as a peer reviewer.

All in all, as an inaugural program for the DT Journal, the resident member requirements will remain dynamic and subject to change in accordance with the Editorial Board’s missions and goals.
