Resource Highlight

The National Center for Dental Hygiene Research was established through a 3-year grant from the Bureau of Health Professions (BHP), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in 1993. Development of the Center has been based on a collaborative model that brings researchers, educators and clinicians together to develop and conduct studies related to national dental hygiene research priorities. The National Dental Hygiene Research Agenda provides directions to hygienists on priority research areas that can help advance the profession.
