Our Research

The Center pursues a vigorous agenda of public health research within large, diverse populations. Centralized departments provide the infrastructure and expertise necessary to support our investigators as they write grant proposals, conduct studies, analyze data, and publish their findings.

Featured Studies


National Dental Practice-Based Research Network

Through the National Dental Practice-Based Research Network, dental practitioners work with clinical researchers to design, implement, and evaluate clinically relevant and pragmatic strategies for improving patients’ oral health. The goal is to engage practitioners so that clinical research is translated into everyday practice.
