Expertise in the fabrication of multiple phase interpenetrating ceramic composites. This research involves the infusion of various types porous ceramic matrices with resins, glasses and metals to fabricate materials for CAD-CAM machining systems as well as novel medical and dental implant devices.

Expertise in the effects of machining and polishing conditions on ceramic materials. Research has involved the analysis of residual stress development as well as strength alteration due to machining and polishing. Milling devices such as the CEREC 2 (CAD-CAM device) as well as the Celay (manual copy milling) have been used to fabricate test specimens from a variety of ceramic materials. These conditions have been compared to controlled sequential machining and polishing to analyze the effects of milling tools, load, solutions, and devices on ceramics.

Expertise in new materials analysis. Many new materials are introduced to the dental community each year. A number of our projects involve characterization and analysis of mechanical, physical and chemical properties of ceramic, composite resin and metal restorative systems.
