The Center for Oral Health Research (COHR) at the College of Dentistry of the University of Kentucky was officially approved by the UK Faculty Senate on March 6, 2000. This action brings into reality an initiative started by the administration and faculty of the UKCD in 1997. It creates a focus and research infrastructure for the College, which links it with the Medical Center and the larger UK academic environment. Moreover, it will help to position the UKCD as a leader in accomplishing the goal of UK to become a top 20 institution by 2020.
