The goal of PROH is to provide the research infrastructure for generating practical, timely information that can be used by dental practitioners to enhance the quality and effectiveness of oral health care delivered to the general public.

The PROH Network conducts clinical oral health research using practitioners from different regions in Oregon and Washington, operating within their own practices, in their own communities, and on their own diverse patient pools.

This cadre of well-trained dental professionals is capable of undertaking research to answer questions that arise during the every day practice of dentistry and to evaluate products, procedures and behaviors. Virtually any clinical research project can be performed.
