Our research is broadly divided into three main areas listed below: however, there is collaboration between them. Biomaterials (biomaterials; restorative dentistry; oral and maxillofacial surgery); primary dental care (dental public health; behavioural sciences; primary care; orthodontics); tissue injury and repair (oral biology and pathology; restorative and children�s dentistry; periodontology). Our research has a strong translational focus, being driven by clinical questions, and aims to provide novel diagnostic and therapeutic solutions to the most common oral and general health problems. We explore disease mechanisms, improve our understanding of pathogenic processes, and formulate new healthcare solutions based upon this new knowledge.
