Clinical Trials Program

NIDCR is committed to identifying effective preventive, diagnostic, and treatment approaches for craniofacial, oral, and dental diseases and disorders. To advance these efforts, the Institute supports well-designed clinical trials (Phase I, II, III, and IV) that have the potential to improve oral and craniofacial health. These trials should provide scientific evidence that can be used for establishing or changing the standard of care, or for consideration of a change in health care policy.
