New Jersey Dental School Researcher Receives $3.4 Million Grant

Cibele Nasri-Heir, DDS, a dentist from NJDS, demonstrates the proper way

to brush to Andrea Polo, a student from St. Michael school in Newark.

Polo is enrolled in a research study being conducted by NJDS professor

Daniel H. Fine, DMD. Study participants receive free dental exams,

cleanings and toothbrushes, and they are offered free dental care for

the duration of the study. Funded by the National Institutes of Dental

and Craniofacial Research, the study is looking at the causes and

possible prevention of a periodontal disease that is more common in

African-American and Hispanic children than Caucasians, particularly

those in underserved areas.
