Research Participants Needed

The College of Dentistry at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center is looking for volunteers for a research study to assess the plaque status in adults in the Memphis area. This study consists of seven (7) clinic visits where participants will complete a health history form and an oral health questionnaire, and then a dental professional will visually examine the participants’ oral health status and collect plaque samples from the participants using cotton tip applicators.

*After the results of the first visit are analyzed, subjects will be notified if they qualify for visits 2 through 7. 100 subjects will be participating. The participant will receive $25 for the first completed visit.

Participants will then receive $30 for completing visits 2 through 7 for each visit. Subjects can earn a maximum of $205 for completing all seven of the clinic visits. The participant will also receive a limited visual dental examination at no charge and validated parking.

Participation in this study may qualify you for participation in future studies. Please call Laura for further information if you meet the following characteristics:

  • Provide written informed consent
  • Possess 16 natural teeth
  • Be at least 18 years of age or older
  • Be in good physical health
  • Not be enrolled in other oral/dental studies
