I am a dentist with expertise in use of animal models for testing therapeutic strategies in Periodontology and Dental Implantology, including clinical, microbiological, histomorphometric, and radiomorphometric analysis of peri-implant, periodontal and maxillofacial tissues and limbs models.
Current research strategies are:
- Regeneration of bone to support implantable titanium, titanium alloy, and zirconia devices with modified surfaces
- In vivo testing of novel bone grafting materials
- New diagnostic and therapeutic strategies for periodontal and peri-implant diseases.
I am also involved in basic science and epidemiological research in the areas of clinical periodontics, dental implantology, forensics, and comparative anatomy.
