Dental researchers represent the future of the profession as
they study new approaches to practice. If you choose to take up a research
career, you may work at a university or a specialized center of health and
research, such as the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research,
which is part of the National Institutes of Health, or you may take a position
in the private sector.
It’s also work you can do as a student or while you are
working in private practice through advanced dental fellowships and research
opportunities sponsored by public and private organizations.
