Participate in research

Research is fundamental for creating a healthy future for all, but it isn’t just microscopes and molecules!

Right now, evidence for kids is limited and we need clinical research to expand the evidence for the best treatments for children.

Your participation in child health research will improve healthcare for children across the country.


We are currently recruiting youth and families to participate in the following studies*.

Healthy Smile Happy Child – Silver Diamine Fluoride

The Healthy Smile Happy Child Research group is looking for children aged 18 months to 6 years with active cavities. They’re offering a FREE non-invasive treatment (no drills) using Silver Diamine Fluoride to stop decay from getting worse.
