  • Research Site Introduction:

    Founded in 1910 as a dental infirmary for underserved children, the Forsyth Institute has a proud history of not just meeting the oral health needs of kids – but exceeding the traditional limits of oral medicine. Forsyth has a wide array of principal investigators and world renowned researchers who are eminent scientists in their fields. We are world leaders in oral and craniofacial research. Our expertise includes: clinical research, microbiology, genomics, tooth decay and enamel erosion, inflammation and immunology. In the mid-1900s, researchers at Boston-based Forsyth revolutionized the oral health profession when they discovered the connections between dental decay and bacteria. Building on these revelations, the Institute has become an independent research organization dedicated to advancing human health and wellbeing through scientific discovery and education.
