A new landmark report on the state of oral health in America contains significant contributions from 16 faculty members at the School of Dentistry. “Oral Health in America: Advances and Challenges” was prepared under the direction of the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), with collaboration from the U.S. Surgeon General and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The report is an update of a groundbreaking Surgeon General study in 2000 that emphasized how oral health is directly related to overall health and well-being while identifying significant gaps in access to oral healthcare for many Americans.
