Faces of Give Kids A Smile

“One of our more anxious kids was eventually so captured by our enthusiasm that he wanted to be a dentist by the end of his visit.” - Adam Saltz

The ADAF Dr. Anthony Volpe Research Center is active in nano-science and tissue engineering research, with several recent studies focusing on molecular and cell biology. 

A recent U01 grant from the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR) along with a joint ADAF, ADA, and Colgate-Palmolive Company initiative, help support the future success of the VRC's research efforts.
