Applied Oral Health Research

Our multidisciplinary research has a wide range. It includes multi-centre clinical trials. We design and conduct national epidemiological surveys of oral health.

Underpinning evolving health policy

We contribute to the evidence base that underpins evolving health policy. We aim to improve the health and wellbeing of patients and populations.

Our research in oral care pathways and epidemiology has direct relevance to services. It informs policy at the local, national and international level.

We address priorities identified by epidemiology to redefine oral health care strategies.
