Colgate Oral Care and University of Sydney Partnership


13 August 2011

The University of Sydney and Colgate Oral Care have renewed their partnership for a further 5 years. Colgate concentrates support on promoting preventive dentistry and community oral health. Colgate has partnered with the University since 2006 supporting the Colgate Professor of Preventive Dentistry currently held by Associate Professor Wendell Evans. Professor Evans' research into the establishment of a "drill-free clinic" and his concentration on preventive practice fits well with Colgate's philosophy. Part of the focus of this renewed agreement will be on the development of evidence based teaching resources for the use of staff and students. Support is also offered in the form of a scholarship to a post graduate PhD student in Population Oral Health. The current recipient of this award is Dr Bradley Christian who is undertaking research into remineralisation potential of decayed teeth.
