Dental Hygiene Research Agenda

Dental hygiene specific research is important both to the profession and to the broader health care system. Profession-specific research adds to the overall body of knowledge, allowing the profession to meet the evolving and complex oral health needs of the public and enhance the oral health and well-being of Canadians.

Produced by the Canadian Dental Hygienists Association, the Dental Hygiene Research Agenda informs researchers, educators, dental hygienists, other health professions, and members of the public of priorities for dental hygiene research. It aims to effect change in three key areas: (1) access to care issues and unmet oral health needs of individuals, (2) risk assessment and management of health conditions, and (3) capacity building within the dental hygiene profession.
