Dundee researchers to work with Sheffield University on effects of deprivation

A new initiative led by researchers from the University of Dundee and Sheffield has been awarded nearly £2 million to investigate ways of improving the oral health of young people living in deprived areas.

Professor Nicola Innes, professor of paediatric dentistry and associate dean for learning and teaching at Dundee Dental School, said: “Dental decay is preventable and, in some ways, that should be simple.
