New York University’s College Dentistry researchers recently went to P.S. 140 to provide elementary school students with dental appointments to prevent cavities as part of NYU College Dentistry’s five-year study funded through a $13.3 million award by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute. The prevalence of cavities in the Bronx is nearly twice the national average, according to recent statistics.
