Research Day 2017

Dental Implants: Treatment Planning Decision Making

Tuesday, January 24, 2017
Alma Mater Society Student Nest, Great Hall

Research Day 2017 will mark the 10th anniversary of this annual event. In recognition of this milestone, the Faculty of Dentistry is reprising the important clinical topic of implants. The program will examine ongoing research and current published evidence that may significantly impact implant placement and care in today’s clinical practice.

A diverse and dynamic group of dental and dental hygiene faculty, graduate students and distinguished alumni will present their research and clinical perspectives. They are advancing understanding in the areas of implant placement, restoration, long-term stability and best practices for the care of both stable and disease-associated implants. Collectively, all are working to improve patient care and oral health.
