Student Research Program


Student Research Projects

Students lead cutting-edge research projects with guidance from our faculty.

Completing a research project is a requirement for third-year dental students and dental hygiene students.

Postgraduate residents also complete research projects for their residency programs or to complete their master's degrees.

Through these projects, students and residents gain insight into how they can help shape the future the oral health. Research topics range from clinical and basic sciences to educational research.
