The article reports on a research by Gustavo D. Cruz which claimed that immigrants' ethnicities and countries of origin can predispose them to caries and periodontal disease. Cruz and colleagues analyzed caries and periodontal disease rates in more than 1,500 immigrants living in New York City. The study concluded that caries and periodontal disease can be linked to ethnicity and country of origin even among immigrants who have lived for many years in the U.S.
