Clinical Research, Technology Transfer & Dental Materials Sciences Research Cluster


This cluster encompasses groups engaged in research on cancer diagnosis and prevention, dental biofilms, dental hygiene, dental instruments and materials, dental sleep medicine, forensic dentistry, and interactive dental anatomy. Our areas of expertise include biomaterials, dental morphology, obstructive sleep apnea, oral cancer, and root canal irrigation. We study matters such as bacterial eradication, cellular interactions, cephalometrics, community outreach programs, computational fluid dynamics, diagnostic tools, DNA analysis, fracture mechanisms, molecular markers, novel disinfection strategies, oral care products, surface characterization, and treatment strategies.
