Research at the Faculty of Dentistry

Research at the University of Sydney Faculty of Dentistry embraces innovative research through our broad themes of Chronic Disease and Ageing well-Ageing productively in alignment with other Health Science Faculties of the University.

A major impact of oral disease within diverse communities relates to the burden of chronic infections, particularly caries and periodontal disease. The causes, consequences and treatment needs for these diseases continues to drive initiatives for research into prevention, early intervention and improved treatment outcomes.

Our research strengths are in the areas of microbial pathogenicity, biomaterials, implant technology, tissue regeneration and minimal intervention therapies for management of caries.
