George W. Taylor, DMD, MPH, DrPH, is Professor Emeritus at the University of Michigan in the School of Dentistry ealth. He received his DMD degree from Harvard School of Dental Medicine and his MPH and DrPH from the University of Michigan, School of Public Health.
His research focuses on relationships between oral and systemic health, particularly periodontal infection and diabetes. His team's investigations use epidemiological and intervention study designs, as well as secondary data analysis of complex survey data, to investigate the bi-directional relationships between periodontal infection and glycemic control and complications of diabetes. His team also conducts health services research to study the relationship between dental care service utilization and medical care costs for insured individuals who have diabetes and other systemic diseases. His research is funded by NIH/NIDCR, foundations, and industry.
Dr. Taylor is a member of the Board of Directors of the American Association of Public Health Dentistry and the Council on Scientific Affairs of the American Dental Association.
Description of Research Area(s):
Dr. George Taylor is currently principal investigator of NIH-funded research projects including a cohort study on the relationships between periodontal disease, gestational diabetes and adverse pregnancy outcomes; an analysis of NHANES data on the effects of diabetes on dental caries and tooth loss; an analysis of NHANES data on the interrelationships between periodontal disease, diabetes and diabetes complications; and a feasibility study to plan for a national multicenter randomized clinical trial testing whether treating periodontal infection can improve glycemic control in people with type 2 diabetes. He also directs investigations funded by private insurance carrier foundations in Michigan (Delta Dental Fund and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan Foundation) to conduct analysis of medical and dental insurance claims data on interrelationships between oral and systemic health and by Straumann Foundation to conduct a clinical trial on the impact of complete mouth extraction of severely periodontally involved teeth and the insertion of implant supported dentures on glycemic control of people with diabetes in Pakistan.
