Oral and Dental Studies

We oversee research that deals with conditions from nutritional deficiencies, genetic conditions and general infection to systemic and dental diseases. Our studies take place in a range of settings, including hospital in-patients, dental hospital outpatients and primary care.

We work to promote the successful delivery of research studies in the NHS and to help plan new studies that will address patient’s needs.

We support a wide range of research studies including:

  • Common dental diseases (such as caries and periodontal disease)
  • Oral diseases and conditions (such as oral cancer and orthodontic problems)
  • Promoting oral health at an individual and public health level
  • Prevention and management for all dental diseases, related conditions and their longer-term impacts
  • Development and testing of new technologies
