NYU Langone Dental Medicine Postdoctoral Residency Programs Awarded $3.25 million HRSA Grant

Congratulations to the NYU Langone Dental Medicine Postdoctoral Residency Programs, the recipient of a new 5-year, $3.25 million HRSA grant. Dr. Martin Lieberman, Vice President of Graduate Dental Education, and Dr. Mary E. Northridge, Director of Dental Research, are the 2 project directors. They are excited about working collaboratively with the Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) and the Advanced Education in Pediatric Dentistry (AEPD) programs and their partners at the NYU School of Global Public Health (PI: Dr. Melody Goodman) and Family Health Centers at NYU Langone (PI: Dr. Margaret K. Mason) on this award. This is the first time that both the AEGD and AEPD programs will be included in this postdoctoral training grant for our overall program. Special thanks to Dr. Anna D’Emilio, Vice President and AEGD Program Director, Dr. Daniel Kane, AEPD Program Director, and Dr. Nery Clark and Ms. Loreina Tam with NYU Langone Dental Medicine's Graduate Dental Education Office, for their valued contributions to the application. The project title is, “Improving access to and delivery of oral health care services for vulnerable and rural populations across the life course.” The grant will train NYU Langone Dental Medicine faculty to use motivational interviewing techniques to deliver age-appropriate oral, primary, and behavioral health care services, and conduct 2 screening and referral projects regarding the social determinants of oral health and human papillomavirus vaccination. Funds will also be used to develop a culturally-competent sugar-sweetened beverage educational campaign, enhance the didactic education and clinical training of dental residents, support the opportunity to earn an Advanced Certificate in Public Health, and promote the hiring of resident graduates as faculty for the NYU Langone Dental Medicine Postdoctoral Residency Programs.
