Event Date: 9/19/2018

Event Times: 12:05-1:00pm

Location: Froehlke Auditorium*

Dr. Richard Niederman is professor and chair, Department of Epidemiology & Health Promotion at New York University College of Dentistry, and Co-Director of the World Health Organization Collaborating Center for Quality-improvement, Evidence-based Dentistry (QED).  He graduated magna cum laude in 1976 from the Harvard School of Dental Medicine where he also received his periodontal specialty training. He received certificate training in Evidence-Based Medicine at Oxford University in 1996. He is the founding USA editor of the journal Evidence-Based Dentistry; co-author of the book Evidence-based Dentistry, and author of more than 100 peer reviewed scientific articles.

His current work focuses on improving oral health equity by disseminating and implementing community-based and evidence-based caries prevention programs. These bring primary and secondary preventive care to people, rather than people to care. NIH, PCORI, and foundations support his work in urban New York and Boston, as well as rural Colorado, Hawaii, Kansas, Maine, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire.

Data from these programs indicate that effective caries prevention programs:
(1) Vary directly with intensity and frequency
(2) Can be effectively delivered by non-dentists
(3) Can reduce untreated cavities by 80%
(4) Inadequate preventive intensity or frequency has little to no impact on oral health.
