The Network for Canadian Oral Health Research is intended to link oral health researchers from the ten dental programs at universities across Canada. The network will gather researchers from varied backgrounds but with shared research interests at workshops to plan new research; and work to expand educational and training foundations to promote the next generation of Canadian oral health researchers. The network will create ways for oral health researchers to share ideas and resources so they can work together to continue to improve the oral health of Canadians.
