Present Research Thrusts and Interests

As an interdisciplinary research group, the MDRCBB has made strides in evaluating dental materials, restorative dentistry design, and improvement of biomaterials through bio-functionalization and mechanical testing. New research and new collaboration with visiting researchers, and industrial partners contribute to the ever growing list of endeavors. Some of the present research thrusts and interest include a new generation of Artificial Resynthesis Technology (ART), restorative dentistry evaluation using finite element analysis, and virtual dental anatomy simulation.
