ABOUT US


Established in 1985, Professional Audience Communications (PAC) is a publishing company dedicated to the creation of media designed to effectively communicate with professional markets. Though PAC has produced international monographs, posters for global dental research conferences, proceedings highlights of oral care research symposia, patient newsletters, brand-specific case reports and sales aids, the cornerstone of our business has been our accredited continuing education (CE) newsletter serials, developed to offer exclusivity and maximum impact to the sponsor's advertising. Over the last 23 years, PAC has been honored to produce programs under the sponsorship of Colgate-Palmolive, Procter & Gamble, Chesebrough-Pond's, SmithKline Beecham, Dentsply International's Preventive Care and Trubyte Divisions, Enamelon, Optiva, OraPharma, Align Technology, Hill Top Research, Oral-B, Discus Dental, Ondine Biopharma, Pfizer, and Church & Dwight.

In 1997, PAC wrote and produced Advances and Progress in Oral Health Through Oral Care Education, an award-winning comprehensive monograph addressing the efficacy of oral health education initiatives in developed and underdeveloped nations. PAC also publishes The Journal of Clinical Dentistry, an international journal of clinical and applied dental research and reviews.

In 1995 PAC was awarded a Special Citation by the American Society for Geriatric Dentistry.
