JADA was previously known as Dental Cosmos until 1936. Dental Cosmos was the first monthly record of dental sciences in the United States. It was founded in 1859 in Philadelphia.[5] The journal published articles related to dentistry from 1859 to 1936 when it merged with the Journal of American Dental Association. The archived articles are hosted in its online library by the University of Michigan.
