[This section is appended with the following statements of NIDCR's interests.]

National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR)

The National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR) is interested in research that examines social ecological factors (including, but not limited to, individual, cultural, community, policy, and the health care system) that influence oral health in Native American populations. The prevalence of oral diseases in Native American populations is amongst the highest in the U.S.

NIDCR welcomes culturally-appropriate epidemiological studies that examine oral health in the context of general health.  The overall goal of the studies is to establish factors for future interventions to improve oral health.  Specific areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Studies that examine oral health in the context of general health
  • Research that utilizes mixed methods in order to better understand barriers, enablers, and determinants of oral health in Native American communities
  • Research that analyses existing datasets to better understand barriers, enablers, and determinants of oral health in Native American communities
  • Studies that take a multi-generational perspective to address family factors influencing the oral health of all family members
