You will find a very extensive description of dental research protocol
in this document:
Obstetrics and Periodontal Therapy (OPT) Study
Manual of Operations


Purpose:  To determine if treatment of pregnant women with
periodontitis affects gestational age.

Design:  This is a randomized, single-blind, multi-center intervention
trial.  Women between 13-16 weeks (inclusive) of gestation will be
enrolled; half will be randomized to receive non-surgical periodontal
therapy during their second trimester of pregnancy and half will
receive treatment after delivery.  Enrollment is expected to take 18
months and subjects will be followed until delivery.

Sample Size: 816 women; 204 at each of four enrollment centers.


The document was specifically made available by the US National Institute of
Dental and Craniofacial Research as an example of a high-quality
dental research protocol.

I trust this is exactly what you need.

However, please don't rate this answer if the document doesn't fully
meet your needs.  Instead, post a Request for Clarification to let me

Thanks for the effort ... but let me clarify the question clearly.
I want the scientific research protocal for the subject of "Dental Material" ?
This writeup should describe the protocol needed to do a research on
Dental Material. I need this information to submit to get approval for
my research from college.

Thanks for the effort again.

Ordinarily, if a customer clarifies a question by asking a
substantially different question, I would direct them to post it as a
new question for a new fee.

Since you're relatively new to Google Answers, I'll cut you a break
this time around, and continue researching your question.  However, it
would help a great deal to have a much clearer idea of what you're

What do you mean by "dental material"? 

What sort of research do you have in mind? 

And what would be helpful to you in the way of 'protocols'?  

With a clear idea of what you're after, I'll do my best to find you
the relevant information.

Looking forward to hearing from you,
