Research Opportunity for IABDM Members: Help Build the Dental Data Bank

by | Mar 1, 2013 | Diet & Nutrition, Research

Biological dentists understand well how diet influences orofacial development and, in turn, systemic health.

The Dental Data Bank (DDB) is a new, central, digital library of orofacial data on children aged 7, 12 and 17, to be used for longitudinal studies. The first will compare the oral-systemic health of children growing up on the Standard American Diet with those on the Nourishing Traditions Diet advocated by the Weston A. Price Foundation (WAPF).

IABDM members are invited to become Certified Dentists to provide standardized data for the DDB. (Non-members are not eligible at this time. Learn more about joining the IABDM.) Benefits from contributing to this important resource include

  • Better educated patients, including WAPF members – often, the ideal patients.
  • New skills and knowledge for optimal orofacial development.
  • Growing a new practice and income stream for your office.
  • More referrals and an enhanced reputation within your community.
  • Greater professional and personal satisfaction as a dental physician.
