To aid in the development of a clinical trial, practitioners from the Network’s Midwest node (only) and their patients who smoke will participate in a mixed-methods cross-sectional study to investigate their willingness to give away or receive free samples of nicotine replacement therapy, and their reactions to planned trial procedures.

Erosive Tooth Wear – ETW

Practitioners and their patients in the Southwest, South Central, and South Atlantic Regions (only) with erosive tooth wear will participate in a cross-sectional clinical study to investigate provider and patient perceptions of erosive tooth wear, identify detection thresholds, and estimate prevalence and risk factors for erosive tooth wear.
