About us

The Translation Research in a Dental Setting (TRiaDS) Programme operates as part of the Clinical Effectiveness Workstream, within NHS Education for Scotland‘s Dental Directorate, to support the translation of knowledge into practice.

TRiaDS is a multidisciplinary research collaboration

embedded within the Scottish Dental Clinical Effectiveness Programme (SDCEP) guidance development process.


The aim of TRiaDS

is to develop and evaluate the implementation of strategies to improve the knowledge-to-practice gap in primary care dentistry in Scotland.


TRiaDS works in partnership

with the other three Clinical Effectiveness Workstream programmes to develop and test interventions to enhance the translation of guidance recommendations into practice:

Drawing on experience gained in applying this approach within dental practice, the TRiaDS methodology has also been applied within optometry and pharmacy.
