Research at the Faculty of Odontology

OD research

The research at the faculty spans through a broad spectrum: from molecular biological studies of oral tissues to wide-ranging studies of oral health in different generations, social classes and international cultures. International collaboration is a common theme, and there is frequent research co-operation across disciplinary boundaries.

Research workers at the Faculty of Odontology collaborate across subject and faculty boundaries. Together with surface chemists, for example, they study the properties of surfaces, in order to arrive at a better understanding of reactions in the oral cavity.

To solve problems they can also rely on research findings in disciplines such as molecular biology, microbiology, radiology, implant technology, and mechanics, subjects to which they can also contribute specialist knowledge of their own.

Cooperation with psychologists, educators, and sociologists gives substance to research into problems of oral health which are associated with people's behaviour and with social and economic factors. 

About 50 students are registered for post-graduate research training, and 3-6 theses per year are published and defended for the Doctoral Degree. Each year 60-70 scientific papers are published, mainly in international journals.
