WHAT’S NEW 

U.S. Election Concludes
On November 8, the American people elected Donald J. Trump as the 45th U.S. President to take office January 20th, 2017. The American Association for Dental Research’s (AADR) top advocacy priority is funding for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and specifically the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR). AADR and our partners under Friends of NIDCR look forward to working with the new Administration and Congress to communicate the importance of biomedical research for the health of the American people. Please check back on the AADR Government Affairs Blog as further details on key appointments in the new Administration and on Congressional committees become known.

From an International Association for Dental Research (IADR) perspective, we will continue to advocate for the important role the U.S. has regarding global health, supporting the World Health Organization, the goals of the United Nations Noncommunicable Diseases Summit and the UN initiative on Sustainable Development Goals. As we strive towards our mission of advancing research and increasing knowledge for the improvement of oral health worldwide, IADR and AADR are committed to our diverse membership and will always be an inclusive community of oral, dental, and craniofacial researchers for membership, meetings, and our publications.

Donate for 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.
