Tamanna Tiwari, M.P.H., M.D.S., B.D.S., is a research associate in the Department of Community and Behavioral Health at the Colorado School of Public Health, University of Colorado, Denver. She earned her B.D.S. and M.D.S. at Bharati Vidyapeeth University, Pune, India; and her M.P.H. from New York University.

Her main area of work is at the Center for Native Oral Health Research (CNOHR) in Colorado, which is one of the three Early Childhood Caries (ECC) disparities research centers funded by NIH-NIDCR in the United States. CNOHR conducts research aimed at developing culturally acceptable and effective strategies to prevent infectious oral diseases in American Indian and Alaska Native populations. Although both caries and periodontal disease are entirely preventable, disparities in oral health for American Indians and Alaska Natives are among the highest reported.
