Research & Publications

Welcome to the Faculty of Dentistry's website that introduces our appointed academic staff and associate and adjunct members involved in research. As evidence based dentistry can only advance with a commitment to research, the Faculty of Dentistry is committed to continuously developing and improving its research and teaching programs related to oral health. Researchers within our faculty investigate a broad range of important oral health issues at both the clinical and basic science levels.
