ELECTRONIC STUDY CLUB FOR ORTHODONTICS (ESCO) is a free service, operated on the Internet. It was started by Dr. Joseph Zernik at the University of Southern California and currently sponsored by the Department of Orthodontics, University of Illinois at Chicago. It is intended for free exchange of information and opinions by members of our profession.
What can you find in ESCO?
Discussions on ESCO have covered a wide range of subjects including specific appliances and their performance in practice, unusual cases, issues related to practice management, and announcements of upcoming meetings.
The American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics, the World Journal of Orthodontics, as well as the Journal of Clinical Orthodontics and the Angle Orthodontist transmit tables of contents with some additional notes to ESCO , often before they appear in print. The Journal of Clinical Orthodontics also transmits its editorials.
You can also visit some of the orthodontic journals directly at their web pages:
