Advisory Board Bio's
Renewed interest in improving access to oral health care for those most vulnerable brought Dr. Nehring a leadership role as MCHB’s Chief Dental Officer to share public health perspective, knowledge of Federal programs and an ability to collaborate with Federal, State, and non-governmental partners. Innovative oral health grant programs were authored and expert workgroups were convened to address the need for earliest prevention interventions in keeping with the concept of dental home, integration of systems of care and the development of inter-professional, patient-centered care models to the benefit of women and children. He continues to bring broad leadership and program management experiences to national agendas as an expert consultant, participating in policy development workshops and panels considering promising interventions for earliest disease prevention practices, inter-professional collaboration and evaluation of innovative programs.
Dr. Nehring received his professional degree in dentistry from Boston University. He also possesses a Master’s degree in Education from the University of Maine, a Master of Public Health degree from Johns Hopkins, and residency training in Dental Public Health. As a Department Chair at Tufts, Dr. Nehring works with Tufts University leadership to strengthen community-based dental education and public health experiences for its diverse pre-doctoral and postdoctoral student body. Under Tufts University’s strategic planning initiative, major focus within the Department includes curriculum revisions to integrate community service learning and inter-professional education, develop a formalized approach to global outreach, and coordinate faculty and student volunteer community-based activities as part of the unified embodiment of Tufts University’s philosophy of success.
