About the Center

Welcome to the Southeast Center for Research to Reduce Disparities in Oral Health (SCRRDOH), a multi-disciplinary center at the University of Florida College of Dentistry.

Built on strong community partnerships and led by principal investigator Henrietta Logan, Ph.D., the center aims to reduce disparities in oral health among Florida’s rural populations through community based research and intervention projects based on the best science available and community participation.

Local residents are involved in all phases, from designing research to collecting data to publicizing results and influencing public policy.
