ADA, AADR seek $10 million for 2020 military dental research

Washington— The ADA and American Association of Dental Research are asking Congress for $10 million for military dental research in 2020.

In April 9 letters to Reps. Pete Visclosky, D-Ind., chair, House Defense Appropriations Committee, and Ken Calvert, R-Calif., ranking member, the two organizations asked lawmakers to keep the funding levels at $10 million — which is the same as the current funding — so that federal dental programs can continue providing unique research centered on head and facial trauma and oral disease.
