The Department of Epidemiology & Health Promotion at New York University College of Dentistry has been designated as a World Health Organization (WHO) Collaborating Center for Quality-Improvement, Evidence-Based Dentistry. The designation recognizes the department’s expertise and commitment to evidence-based dentistry.

In its announcement, WHO states the center — led by codirectors Richard Niederman, DMD, professor and chair of the Department of Epidemiology & Health Promotion, and Eugenio Beltran, DMD, MPH, DrPH, MS, adjunct professor of epidemiology and health promotion — will support education, research and scholarly exchange based on three principal goals:

  1. Provide technical cooperation in designing surveillance systems that measure oral disease burden, quality of life, and the impact of preventive interventions.
  2. Design and disseminate protocols for the prevention and control of oral diseases.
  3. Develop educational content for the prevention and control of oral diseases in older adults by primary health care providers working in community programs and health centers.

With this designation, the New York University department becomes one of 10 WHO Dentistry Collaborating Centers in the world.
