Applied Clinical Research & Public Health
The Applied Clinical Research & Public Health theme researches factors affecting the dental health of populations.
It measures objectively: dental disease, social behaviour, and dental practices and management processes, to assess the public’s dental health status and its future needs.
Studies performed in this theme have informed major policy decisions, some impacting dental health on a global scale.
The theme is subdivided into two operational groups: Epidemiology & Applied Clinical Research, and Violence & Society.
Information about key findings, achievements and areas of work, including the UK Child Dental Health Survey, benefits of orthodontic treatment and development of novel approaches to manage recurrent orofacial herpetic lesions.
