Privacy and Security Policy

NIDCR uses IdeaScale as the NIDCR 2030 platform to engage the community in providing input on various topics. Although visitors may read submitted ideas and comments without registering for an IdeaScale account, visitors who want to contribute ideas and comments, follow and vote on ideas, receive e-mail alerts, or use other site features must create an account. To create an account, you must provide the following information (name, e-mail address, primary affiliation, agency/organization and location) and create an account password. Your e-mail address and other registration information will not be visible to the public, and NIDCR does not disclose or share any information about individual registered IdeaScale users--except if required by law.


Please note: Questions and comments submitted to NIDCR 2030 are public. As such, please do not include any personal information. If you do not wish to create an account, you can submit your ideas or comments to NIDCR via e-mail:
