The Department of Comprehensive Dentistry is comprised of more than 150 faculty and staff committed to teaching, research, and service. Our disciplines of general dentistry, restorative dentistry, prosthodontics, oral medicine/radiology, prevention, and community outreach provide a comprehensive educational experience. The postdoctoral division conducts advanced education programs in general dentistry, prosthodontics, oral and maxillofacial radiology, and dental public health.
Our scientists have produced some of the most influential research publications in modern dentistry, while continuing to expand the scope of research to examine a wide variety of oral and systemic conditions. We are leaders in the discovery and promotion of evidence-based practice. Our investigators have demonstrated expertise in epidemiological research, basic science research, and clinical trials.
Our recent research has been focused on dental trauma, caries, composite resins, and restorations.
