We are recruiting participants for our Baby Tooth Study

August 5, 2021

The Social Exposome Cluster is currently recruiting participants for our Baby Tooth Study. The purpose of this study is to determine if we can use teeth to understand an individual’s early life environments and experiences, in particular exposure to substances found in our environment, like lead. We are recruiting parents and their children who are interested in participating in this study. Any child who is 5 to 10 years of age, currently living in British Columbia can participate if they have had a tooth fall out, or had a tooth pulled by their dentist. Even teeth that fell out or were pulled a long time ago can be used for this study.
Participation will involve filling out a short questionnaire and mailing the tooth and questionnaire to the BC Children’s Hospital Research Institute. You will be mailed the questionnaire, a tube for the tooth, and a stamped and addressed return envelope. If you are interested in participating, please check out our website or contact the study coordinator at
