DPBRN expands
Monday, December 01, 2003

Because of the tremendous interest in the Alabama Dental Practice Research Network (ADPRN), we expanded the network to include other practitioners and organizations. The network is called the Dental Practice-Based Research Network (DPBRN) and we began enrolling dentists in November 2003. We are having the same remarkable success in building this network as we had with the ADPRN.
