To address the glaring problems of disparity in oral health and representation in the manpower pool of oral health researchers, the National Institute for Dental Research (NIDR) of the National Institutes of Health established Regional Research Centers for Minority Oral Health. The Minority Oral Health Research Center at New York University College of Dentistry, a collaboration between the college and the Fosyth Dental Center, is one of four centers established by the NIDR in the United States to improve oral health for all Americans and to enhance accessibility of research careers for minority individuals. This article describes the center's progress to date, expected outcomes and its call for partners to improve minority oral health.
