Thank you for contributing to the Tooth for Health Study.

We are proud to announce that the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) has approved our proposal to conduct a new follow-up phase with National Child Oral Health Study (NCOHS) families.

This is a wonderful achievement and a clear recognition by the policy makers of the importance of child oral health. The scientific community needs quality research such as our NCOHS study in order to inform relevant policies and practices in improving child oral health.

We named the new phase “Tooth for Health” to reflect the aims of the study that investigate links between dental and general health of children.
