Gerodontology and Special care dentistry

The research interests in the field of Gerodontology and special care dentistry mainly focus on the oral health of community-dwelling/institutionalized older adults and those with special needs. Current research revolves around prevention and minimally-invasive restorative concepts for the older adults, dental implant therapy in the elderly edentates, and the clinical applications of CAD-CAM technology in removable prosthodontics and in geriatric dentistry. We conduct qualitative, clinical-, and laboratory studies. We work in close collaboration with various dental, medical, and basic science disciplines, and with various national and international university research groups.
