This research project, which is being funded by NIH’s National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR), will evaluate the disparity reduction and oral health improvement potential of innovative standardized caries, or cavities, prevention approaches implemented in Willamette Dental Group offices in Oregon. It also will assess organizational sustainability, cost and Medicaid policy implications.
