Research provides the foundations for our work in the School of Dental Sciences. Whether it’s teaching school children about a tooth-friendly diet, offering smoking cessation advice to an adult with gum disease, recommending dental students on the most appropriate filling materials, or advising on national health policy, research is at the heart.

Our focus is on translational research, work that is relevant to real life, and the majority of our activity is organized through the Centre for Oral Health Research including our dental laboratory facilities and the Dental Clinical Research Facility. We also have a research group involved in dental educational research.

In the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 dental research was submitted through the Centre for Oral Health Research as part of Unit of Assessment (UoA) 3 and the results are now published.
