Bezmialem Science 2023;11(2):0-0

Dear Readers;

We are very happy to be together once again with a new issue and new topics. While we were experiencing normalization at the end of the Covid pandemic, we experienced difficult times again with the “Kahramanmaraş Earthquake”, which was defined as the disaster of the century in our country. Our country, as a single heart, started to leave this problem behind by joining hands. Bezmialem Vakıf University also fulfilled its responsibilities in the process in which many health workers and physicians lost their lives. During this period when wounds were healed, our university provided support both in education and health. We would like to thank our senior management and the members of our university who provided this opportunity.

In this issue, you can find many interesting and valuable articles. We chose the cover art from the study of Gürses M et al. We are pleased that many articles in the field of dentistry have been sent to our journal recently. We present the authors’ article titled “Clinical Evaluation of Class II Restorations Made with Bulk-fill Restorative Materials” for the information of interested friends. Other studies are “Microhardness, Degree of Conversion, and Water Sorption/Solubility of Non-expired and Expired (Two and Three Years) Dental Composites” by DÜLGER K et al., “The Role of Clinical and Inflammatory Parameters to Predict the Success of Medical Treatment in Patients with Tubo-ovarian Abscess” by AKTOZ F et al., “Cerebroplacental Ratio During the Third Trimester of Pregnancy: A Prospective Case-Control Study” by KIRLANGIÇ MM et al., and “Aromatherapy in Cancer Patients Receiving Palliative Care” by EGELİ D et al.

I would like to point out that the study of EGELİ D et al. titled “Aromatherapy in Cancer Patients Receiving Palliative Care” is also interesting. I hope you will find this article interesting, which looks at the symptomatic treatment of palliative care patients, which is needed more and more every day in our age, from a different perspective.

Again, intensive labor was spent for this issue. We would like to thank our dean’s office for helping us overcome the difficulties experienced in the selection of referees by identifying the department editors. We would like to welcome these friends, whose names we will share with you as of the next issue.

I would like to thank you, our esteemed readers, authors and referees, on behalf of myself and our editorial board. Hope to meet you in the next issue.

Kind regards,
Prof. Dr. Adem AKÇAKAYA
Editor in Chief
