Many topics and aspects of the main speciality of Dental Anatomy and Oral Biology have been taught. Dental calculus and its role in dental caries and periodontal diseases, functions and problems associated with primary teeth, basic principles of occlusion, the mechanisms that regulate osteoclast differentiation, mechanisms of tooth eruption and formation and secretion of saliva, and electron microscopic analysis of dental and paradental tissues are some examples of the fields and aspects that are given to undergraduate and postgraduate students within the speciality of Oral Biology and Dental Anatomy.

Research Interest

The research interest are: The effectiveness of synthetic bone mineral in improving bone regeneration, stem cells and growth factor therapy in stimulating tissue regeneration, and the analysis of the molecular response of periodontal ligament and gingival cells following the application of orthodontic force.
