I will work with you on career planning or relevant research projects. If I cannot help you I will make a referral if I can. My expertise is at the intersection of dental public health and geriatrics. My research focuses on oral health and the elderly, oral-specific health-related quality of life throughout the life cycle, oral-systemic relationships, and clinical/health services research.
