 Research Expertise & Professional Interests
Projects in progress:

1. Academic – Introduction of an Evidence Based Dentistry Program into the curriculum of DMD3 and AS2 dental students; Clinical Topics in Removable Prosthodontics. This segment teaches the students to be critical thinkers and evaluate the evidence prior to making a clinical decision for using a new dental product or clinical technique. Their project involves research of a PICO question, collecting and analyzing the evidence and preparing and presenting a Powerpoint to be discussed in class.

2. Academic – Assessment of the variety of different teaching tools employed in my courses and the effect of their success upon the student’s learning.
Our students come from a wide demographic and possess different learning styles. I have attempted to address those styles by utilizing the following tools including but not limited to: Powerpoints, annotations, DVD’s, podcasts, hands-on demonstrations, evidence-based and problem-based learning activities.

3. Clinical – Presentation of a predictable and yet simple way to design cast partial denture frameworks. By following a recipe containing a flow chart of the rules of partial denture design, one can methodically arrive at a fool proof method of designing cast partial denture frameworks for definitive treatment with long term success.

4. Clinical – Predoctoral Implantology Program; the diagnosis, treatment planning and restoration of 2 mandibular implant fixtures with a lower overdenture and respective attachments. Presentation of the data will show the trends since the inception of this 3-year program.
