The National Dental Practice-Based Research Network is a collaboration of practitioners and clinical researchers investigating important issues that will improve the quality of dental care. Research is conducted in working dental offices on topics relevant to daily clinical practice. Working closely with practitioners, the network will develop study protocols that minimize the impact of studies on clinic operations and patient flow.
There are many ways to participate in the network, and practitioners choose their level of engagement. Enrollment is free, and practitioners receive CE credit and remuneration for study-related activities.
Dentists and hygienists are invited to join the National Network by visiting their website at www.nationaldentalpbrn.org/index.php and clicking “Enroll Now.” After completing the enrollment questionnaire, you will be contacted by Network staff from the Western Region. Information about the network is available at the website, or contact Jeri Starrett, RDH, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (503) 894-3004.
