Biographical details

Elizabeth Martin was promoted to Associate Professor in 2006 and currently holds appointments as Associate Dean for Learning and Teaching, Discipline Head for Tooth Conservation, Theme Head for Total Patient Care and Sub Dean for Clinical affairs at the Westmead Centre for Oral Health. She has extensive teaching experience within clinical restorative dentistry, is responsible for coordinating the clinical training of students in the final two years of the graduate Bachelor of Dentistry program (BDent) within the two main teaching hospitals and is also heavily involved with planning and introducing the new postgraduate Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) program.

A/Prof Martin gained her Masters degree in the area of dental materials followed by the award of Fellowship in the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons, and then a PhD investigating the microbiology and molecular biology of dental caries. She has published 30 papers within these disciplines and has presented over 150 lectures to the profession covering a range of topics related to the clinical treatment of patients and restorative dentistry including the delivery of numerous hands-on courses.

In addition, she is a Research Fellow at the Institute of Dental Research, works in part-time general practice for the Australian Defence force one day per week, is an examiner for the Australian Dental Council, holds the position of Registrar (General Stream) for the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons and is consulted as a key opinion leader for a number of dental companies.
