This article aims to explain the recent changes in the NHS research support system as it applies to dentistry; information that will be of value to all clinical academics and dentists considering taking part in research. The changes mean that investment goes where patient benefit research is happening. The system has put in place transparent mechanisms to reimburse NHS organisations including dental practices that take part in research and train clinicians in research skills. Through NHS investment in 'translational research', public funds are used directly to deliver improved and more cost effective patient care.
