The College of Dental Medicine has a vision for research: to develop, advance and disseminate knowledge of oral health sciences and related fields to benefit society. The College strives to be a global leader by promoting interdisciplinary research and the integration of basic, clinical, translational, public health, and educational research.

A new Center for Collaborative Research, opened in 2016, is adding a wealth of resources for dental students. Students earning a doctoral or post-doctoral degree, including the research-based M.S. in Dentistry, will find great opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration.

Current areas of research will expand to encompass greater levels of inquiry. These research areas include:

  • Biomaterials
  • Tissue Engineering / Regenerative Medicine Bioscience
  • Clinical Research / Evaluating Emerging Therapeutics
  • Epidemiology and Health Services

Students and their advisors may advance discoveries to repair cleft palates, treat cancer, or improve oral hygiene routines. The future of dental research is becoming brighter and better at NSU's College of Dental Medicine.
