Research Projects and Community Programs

In 2011, the Institute of Medicine recommended HRSA address the need for improved access to oral health care. As a result of this recommendation, HRSA created the Integration of Oral Health and Primary Care Practice (IOHPCP) initiative. Two of the current research projects (ROADS and ROADTRIP) being conducted in the DPOH are based upon the guiding principle of interprofessionalism as it is described in the HRSA report (PDF). Our intent is to increase the quality of oral health care, especially in rural, and safety net communities.
