Donate to Research

Dental research created a profession. In the early decades of the last century, investments in dental research moved a trade to a profession. From the fluoridation of public water supplies – a crowning public health achievement of the 20th Century – to high-speed handpieces, dental composites and ceramic restorations, periodontal diagnostics and therapeutics, and more biologic approaches to replacing lost tissues, it was the investments in dental research that defined us as a profession.

Apply for IADR/AADR Awards & Fellowships

Through numerous sponsorships and donations, IADR and AADR are able to fund and administer several awards and fellowships.

JDR Hot Topics

Find out which JDR articles are most read and most cited. 

Widely Used Depression Drug Associated With Dental Implant Failure

The International and American Associations for Dental Research (IADR/AADR) have published a paper titled “SSRIs and the Risk of Osseointegrated Implant Failure – A Cohort Study.” Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs), the most widely used drugs for the treatment of depression, have been reported to reduce bone formation and increase the risk of bone fracture. Since osseointegration is influenced by bone metabolism, this study investigates the association between SSRIs and the risk of failures in osseointegrated implants. 

Study Shows Steep Decline in Tooth Loss, Increase in Socioeconomic Disparities

The International and American Associations for Dental Research (IADR/AADR) have published a paper titled “Projections of U.S. Edentulism Prevalence Following Five Decades of Decline.” This study follows edentulism (tooth loss) over the last hundred years and highlights the numbers of people losing teeth and requiring dentures. It is published in the OnlineFirst portion of the IADR/AADR Journal of Dental Research (JDR). 

Call for Papers in JDR Clinical Supplement Oct. 15 is the Submission Deadline

The Journal of Dental Research is accepting manuscripts for its fifth supplement encompassing all areas of clinical research in the dental, oral and craniofacial sciences. This peer-reviewed supplement will bring emerging contributions in discovery and translational science to clinical application for the healthcare community.

Congress Returns

On September 8, members of Congress returned from recess for a shortened 10-day work period before leaving Washington, DC to continue campaigning for the upcoming November elections. During this timeframe, AADR expects Congress to approve a short term continuing resolution (CR) funding the federal government at the current level from October 1 through the middle of December. 

Educate Your Members of Congress about Water Fluoridation

This week, water fluoridation opponents are planning to lobby members of Congress. They intend to end community water fluoridation, ask for congressional hearings and request that Congress de-fund the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Division of Oral Health. 

Short Term Fiscal Year 2015 Funding Bill Released

This week, House Appropriations Chairman Rogers introduced a short-term Continuing Resolution (CR) (H.J.Res 124) to fund the federal government at 0.0554 percent below fiscal year 2014 levels until December 11, 2014.  This bill contains additional $88 million to fight the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. 

NIDCR Council Meeting September 17

The National Advisory Dental and Craniofacial Research Council will host its next meeting on September 17, 2014, from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. During this meeting NIDCR will discuss the proposed research themes for fiscal year 2016 and host a special session on big data. The location is 31 Center Drive, Building 31C, 6th Floor, Conference Room 10, Bethesda, Maryland 20892.

Single Cell Analysis Program Challenge

On behalf of the NIH Common Fund and the Single Cell Analysis Working Group, the National Institute of Mental Health and the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering launched the Single Cell Analysis Program (SCAP) Challenge on August 15, 2014.  

FOA: Research on Chronic Overlapping Pain Conditions

The NIH has released a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) on research on chronic overlapping pain conditions. The purpose of this FOA is to encourage epidemiological, clinical and translational research that will increase our understanding of the natural history, prevalence, biological mechanisms, psychological variables and clinical risk factors responsible for the presence of multiple chronic pain conditions in people with pain. 

FOA: Multidisciplinary and Collaborative Research Consortium to Reduce Oral Health Disparities in Children

The NIDCR has issued two Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOA) for “Multidisciplinary and Collaborative Research Consortium to Reduce Oral Health Disparities in Children.” The overall goal of this initiative is to establish effective interventions or programs to reduce or eliminate oral health disparities and inequalities in vulnerable U.S. children who are between 0 and 21 years of age. 

Volunteers Needed! Commission on Dental Accreditation Consultants/Site Visitors

AADR is assisting the Commission on Dental Accreditation (CODA) to identify consultants/site visitors in the basic sciences. Please note that CODA defines the basic sciences broadly to include basic, clinical and translational research activities. Ph.D., non-clinical faculty are eligible. If however the nominee is a dentist, they must be an ADA member.

HHMI Research Opportunities for Dental Students at U.S. Schools

In order to encourage more medical, dental, and veterinary students to pursue academic and research careers, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) offers outstanding “year-out” and summer research training programs for students enrolled in schools in the U.S. HHMI is interested in increasing the number of dental students applying for these programs. Women and under-represented minorities are particularly encouraged to apply. Students enrolled in combined professional degree/PhD programs are not eligible to apply.
