The Health Disparities Research Program supports studies that:
- provide a better understanding of the basis of oral health disparities and inequities;
- develop and test interventions tailored/targeted to underserved populations;
- seek to understand a broadened array of determinants of disparities/inequities in oral health status and care at multiple levels;
- take a holistic, social ecological, multi-level interventional approach designed to have a meaningful impact on oral health status and quality of life of vulnerable and underserved populations.
