Our History

     This project is the result of a successful 7-year study (2002 – 2009) conducted with our partners at the University of Pittsburgh.  With the help of over 700 families in Nicholas and Webster counties in West Virginia we were able to gather outstanding population and dental disease data.  Perhaps the most single most stunning piece of data to come to light from that project was that very young children (ages 2-5) had 144% more cavities than children the same age throughout the nation.
