The Department has an exciting and vigorous research program in several areas related to prothodontics and orthodontics. Our faculty members are engaged in innovative basic science research to understand the principles and molecular mechanisms that guide normal development, the pathogenesis of oral disease and the development of novel therapeutic approaches. Our areas of emphasis include: cancer biology, materials sciences, microbiology and tissue engineering.

Our investigation includes both bench science research and clinical research through the care and interaction with patients. Many of our laboratory and clinical discoveries have been translated into technologic and therapeutic advances and integrated into clinical trials and patient care. The doctors have authored or co-authored many clinical articles and research papers on orthodontic conditions and treatments, a testimony to the department's long-standing commitment to medical inquiry.
