About

Through single-site studies and participation in large practice-based research networks, we conduct research across a range of topics in oral health such as opioid prescribing by dentists, integration of oral health to advance general health, and online simulation to train oral health providers in best practices. Specific areas of focus include promoting HPV vaccination in dental clinics and understanding the relationship between viral infections and stomatitis.
