临床研究人员

约翰D.达席尔瓦 ,DMD,MPH,ScM,副院长;修复牙科和生物材料科学系副教授;博狗体育官网医疗主任

Dr. Da Silva's clinical research interests include translational research in optics, and color science in dentistry. He is also involved with the Children’s Hospital Center for Adolescent Substance Abuse 研究 to develop an Internet/内部网-based motivational enhancement therapy (iMET) program for adolescents that can be used in dental and medical offices to target tobacco, alcohol, and drug use.

德国加卢奇 ,医学博士。凹痕,博士,修复牙科系主任和副教授;再生与种植科学部主任
 
Dr. Gallucci actively participates in clinical and translational research related to Fixed Prosthodontics, Oral Implantology, and applied Digital Dental Technology. He is the Principal Investigator (PI) of the Oral Implantology clinical research team in the Division of Regenerative and Implant Sciences at 博狗体育.

亚瑟加维,口腔卫生政策和流行病学副教授

加维博士为健康促进和疾病预防领域的工作做出了重大贡献。他的兴趣在于开发新的治疗方法,以帮助上瘾的吸烟者戒烟并保持永久性戒烟。

唐纳德B.吉登 ,DMD,博士,名誉发育生物学教授

Dr. Giddon’s research involves the psychophysical determination of the anthropometric bases of subjective judgments of facial appearance. Other areas of research as a biostatistician include lateralization of pain, other pathology, and perception; and the ratio of dental morphology to the second and fourth digit length.

正在进行的一项新的教育项目包括将牙医的名称改为口腔医师,并重新评估研究生硕士和博士学位的培训。

大卫金,DMD,DMSc,口腔医学,感染和免疫学副教授

Dr. Kim’s clinical and research interests have been on the use of innovative concepts, technologies and biomaterials to enhance intraoral soft and hard tissue formation, especially by incorporating the tissue engineering concept to repair and regenerate soft and hard tissue volume for patients requiring dental implants to replace missing teeth. He focuses on clinical trials in bone and soft tissue regeneration, tissue engineering, and dental implant therapies.

Shigemi Ishikawa Nagai ,博士,DDS,MSD,修复牙科和生物材料科学副教授,Predoctoral Prosthodontics主任

The Nagai Lab combines basic science with clinical and developmental research. 研究 is focused on color science, soft tissue esthetics in dental implants, and early caries detection, as well as a project involving osteoinductive peptides found by a new biopanning method.

早期龋齿检测系统的开发
The Nagai Lab has been dedicated to the development of an early caries detection system using near-infrared fluorescence. The goal of this study is to put an end to “Drill, Fill and Bill” dentistry and to enhance natural healing by remineralization. Our preliminary in vitro studies confirm that the sensitivity of this new system is as high as three times that of dental radiography. Also, the odds of underestimation errors (i.e. missing early caries) is reduced by 97% in comparison to dental radiography. The current stage of the development is clinical assessment of the feasibility of a prototype device.

牙科中的色彩科学
A dental spectrophotometer was developed in collaboration with the Olympus Corporation. This is the only dental spectrophotometer providing both numerical data and natural images.  Clinical research has been done at 博狗体育 resulting in the publication of several papers. The next step will be a multi center study employing this dental spectrophotometer aimed at developing a computer color matching system for dental ceramic restorations.

新型骨诱导肽在牙种植体中的应用
通过新的生物吸附系统筛选的新肽将评估用于钛牙植入物的骨诱导能力。

植入部位的软组织美学   
在ITI研究基金会的支持下,2003 - 2008年开发了彩色颈部牙种植体。这些植入物通过对前牙种植体部位的牙龈组织的影响改善了浅灰色的光泽。
