Advancing Imaging, Device Production, and Clinical Capabilities in Digital Dentistry.

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages innovation, optimization and customization of core technologies in digital dentistry that improve efficiency of oral healthcare delivery, effectiveness of clinical decision-making and outcomes of treatments associated with dental, oral and craniofacial (DOC) tissues. Among the areas of interest of this FOA are development of digital imaging and image processing capabilities for dental radiology, and the integration of 3-dimensional (3D) additive manufacturing (e.g., 3D printing) with imaging tools. This FOA also supports efforts to develop, integrate, adapt, optimize, and validate new and existing dental materials designed for additive manufacturing approaches in the repair, replacement and restoration of DOC tissues.
