This study examined the status of dental education and oral health in the U.S.; considered future scientific, demographic, economic, organizational, and other developments that may affect oral health status and the system for educating dentists and other dental personnel; developed a statement of how, over the next 25 years, oral health and oral health services should be improved; identified short-term and long-term implications for dental education and public policy; described strategies that will help dental education, research, and practice improve oral health; and considered ways in which each dental school can better relate to the mission of its university and the community at large. The study was overseen by an 18-member committee. Information was collected via site visits to dental schools, liaison panels, a mail survey of all deans of dental schools, a telephone survey of university presidents and chancellors, interviews with leaders of major dental organizations, and a public hearing with oral or written testimony from nearly 55 groups. Twenty-two recommendations are offered in the areas of oral health status and services, mission of education, mission of research, mission of patient care, the dental school in the university, accreditation and licensure, and the dental work force. Appendixes list members of liaison panels, organizations submitting testimony, commissioned papers and their authors, and committee member biographies. (Contains approximately 375 references.) (Jdd)

9 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Best Pharmaceuticals for Children Act (BPCA) and the Pediatric Research Equity Act (PREA) were designed to encourage more pediatric studies of drugs used for children. The FDA asked the IOM to review aspects of pediatric studies and changes in product labeling that resulted from BPCA and PREA and their predecessor policies, as well as assess the incentives for pediatric studies of biologics and the extent to which biologics have been studied in children. The IOM committee concludes that these policies have helped provide clinicians who care for children with better information about the efficacy, safety, and appropriate prescribing of drugs. The IOM suggests that more can be done to increase knowledge about drugs used by children and thereby improve the clinical care, health, and well-being of the nation's children"--Publisher's description
