Have your say – help shape the future of oral and dental health research

Help set the priorities for oral health and dental health research by completing a quick survey.

Oral and dental research in the UK is world-leading, nevertheless it doesn’t receive the funds it deserves.

This results in a small portfolio of research, and a possible shortage of evidence to inform decision making.

One solution would be to identify the research priorities in relation to oral health.

A ground-breaking partnership has been launched to identify unanswered questions relating to oral and dental health research from a patient, public and clinical perspective.

The NIHR CRN Oral and Dental Specialty Group in collaboration with Dental Schools’ Council and Public Health England have developed a new survey for oral and dental health designed to identify research priorities.

NIHR invites contributions from everyone, whether they are members of the public, patients, carers or health and social care professionals and it is interested in anything to do with care of mouth, teeth or gums.

Have your say by filling out the survey and help to shape the future of oral and dental health research.

The survey will be open until January 2018.
