National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR)

The prevalence of oral diseases in Native American populations is amongst the highest in the U.S. The National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR) is interested in interventions that focus on dental caries, periodontal disease, and oral and pharyngeal cancer. Oral diseases share protective and risk factors with numerous other diseases and conditions, making holistic approaches to health promotion and disease prevention particularly important. Determinants of health exist at individual, family, health care systems, community, organizational/institutional and policy levels. Some examples of these determinants include: reliable access to oral health care, sustainable oral health preventive approaches, availability and consumption of healthy foods and beverages, and policies that promote health.

NIDCR welcomes applications for culturally-appropriate studies that propose multi-disciplinary preventive, treatment, and behavioral intervention approaches to improve oral health status, that aim to reduce inequities in Native American communities.  These studies should not focus on oral health in isolation from general health.

NOTE: NIDCR does not support the development or efficacy testing of clinical products with this FOA. Investigators interested in conducting such clinical trials should refer to http://www.nidcr.nih.gov/Research/DER/ClinicalResearch/ClinTrials.htm
