eviDent research will lead directly to improving treatment outcomes for patients, and addresses the connection between oral health and general wellbeing.
network of researchers help provide vital answers to the complex and difficult questions that decision makers face when designing policies affecting health and health care.
Our projects encourage partnerships between academic research experts and dental practitioners which can lead to early adoption of research findings.
This is important as it means outcomes and findings feed into policies and decisions that improve the oral health of our community more rapidly.
Please refer to our eviDent Projects Overview. Some of our projects include:
- Children's Dental Program - school dental screening in disadvantaged communities.
- Oral Cancer Risk Test - detecting patients at risk or with early stage oral cancer.
