The National Advisory Dental and Craniofacial Research Council held its 218th meeting on May 25, where it highlighted an ADEA report on the role of dental education in the prevention of opioid misuse. Many of the approved concepts dealt directly with orofacial pain management.  

Dr. Roland Owens, Associate Director of the NIH Office of Intramural Research, and Dr. Robert Angerer, Scientific Director of NIDCR’s Intramural Program, spoke in-depth about how the intramural research conducted at NIDCR supports basic, translational, and clinical research and training to advance understanding of biological processes relevant to dental, oral and craniofacial health.

ADEA is working with its dental health coalition members to keep cutting-edge research opportunities open for dental faculty, practitioners, and students. We also are pleased to see the work we are doing on the opioid epidemic has been recognized by NIDCR.
