Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery

Clinical Disciplines/Programmes:


Special Interests:

Facial Deformity Clinical Research Group: There is a whole of discipline thematic research  focus integrating clinical studies with a bench to bedside progression of new research areas. Integrating the advances of the 4th Industrial Revolution, I combine my clinical practice with my research focus on areas like 3D printing and advanced materials for virtual surgical planning to customize surgical guides and fixation with permanent and resorbable implants. This can be combined with regenerative implants and research advances to improve bone and soft tissue healing.
