Oral Health Research and the NIH All of Us Program

The NIH All of Us Research Program aims to build one of the largest, most diverse datasets of its kind for health research. NIDCR staff and the public at large submitted ideas about the oral health research questions NIH All of Us could help answer. This input will help to ensure that dental, oral, and craniofacial health remains a focus of the All of Us program. To view submitted ideas and comments, visit the All of Us IdeaScale portal.
