National Dental Practice-Based research Network

The nation’s network conducts research in working dental offices, with real-life patients, on topics relevant to clinical practice. Dental practitioners partner with clinical researchers to evaluate existing and novel strategies for improving oral health.


Welcome to the NDPBRN

The National Dental Practice-Based Research Network is a consortium of participating practices and dental organizations committed to advancing knowledge of dental practice and ways to improve it. Essentially, it is “practical science” done about it, in, and for the benefit of “real world” everyday clinical practice. The major source of funding for the nation’s network is the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, or NIDCR, part of the U.S. National Institutes of Health.
