Facts & figures
We're committed to the discovery of new principles and ideas. Our multidisciplinary research approach brings together the complementary expertise of the Faculty of Medicine and Health's schools, centres and institutes with that of our affiliated teaching hospitals, institutes and international research partnerships.
Our researchers are not limited by the confines of the mouth, but enhance studies in fundamental cell biology, microbiology, molecular biology and biomechanics, with our dental expertise. It is our goal to ‘put the mouth into health.’
Our research is structured around cross-disciplinary themes focused on improving health outcomes.
Hear from our Chair of Lifespan Oral Health
The Noel Martin Visiting Chair program invites prominent academics and researchers from around the world to visit the Sydney Dental School during a sabbatical to share their expertise with our students, our academics (both within Sydney Dental School and in the wider University community) and our alumni. The purpose of these visits is to enhance student learning experience, foster new and ongoing research collaborations and raise the profile of the school and oral health issues within the community.
All visiting chairs:
2017: Professor James Deschner, Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz
2018: Professor Sudarat Kiat-amnuay, University of Texas at Houston
2019: Professor Tara Renton, Kings College London
2020: Associate Professor Vesna Miletic, University of Belgrade
