Dental sciences

Biomedical evidence-based transdisciplinary health research

Our aim is to conduct world-class multidisciplinary research. This research aims to bring together science and clinical disciplines to improve oral health.

Research in the school focuses on:

  • Dental materials
  • Links between oral health & Alzheimer’s disease
  • Dental public health

As well as core dental sciences:

  • Implantology
  • Periodontology
  • Endodontology
  • Dental microbiology
  • Oral surgery

This is complemented by our research work in dental education.

Our researchers and students have access to clinical and research facilities such as biomedical and material laboratories across the University. Our goal is to support our students and researchers to produce world-leading research that leads to improved oral health.

Public Health

We work on innovations in public health aiming to engage and educate patients and practitioners. Topics include the use of antibiotics and their effect on health, the accuracy and value of information available on the Internet, the low sugar diet, prevention of gum disease, dental hygiene in elderly patients and use of language in public health.



Our research focuses on the development of novel biomaterials for dental implants, understanding the interactions between implant modifications and the surrounding tissue as well as mechanisms triggering inflammatory reactions.
