Research Overview

My previous interest has been primarily basic science but I’ve been doing clinical research with residents as they are required to research projects for their studies. I’ve found that my clinical work and my research interests have become linked and I find that I’m frustrated with what I see clinically and what I seem to be able to do with the population I serve. I want to be able to make more of an impact and actually change the pattern of disease, both in the dental field, and the the arena of health in general. My passion and love is with kids and any impact that I can have to lessen and change disease patterns is what I want to pursue.
