The article discusses the effect of private financing on the quality of periodontic researches. While focusing on the increase in the quantity of research, the dearth in government finances is highlighted, which has led to private institutions funding research works. Though it led to international publishing of these research works, the sanctity and reliability of such researches is questioned and a hope is expressed for independent financial resources on a multinational level.
