Our Group

My laboratory is currently investigating the longevity of posterior resin composite restorations, the light output from dental curing lights in dental offices, the existence of any 'blue-light' hazard, and the benefits of fast vs. slow curing of dental restorations.


Population Based Comparison of the Long-Term Survival and Costs of Posterior Amalgam and Resin Composite Restorations
Developing a New Standard for Reporting the Light Output from Dental Curing Lights
Defining the Requirements for a Commercial Device for Assessing the Adequacy of the Polymerisation of Light Cured Polymeric Resin Materials
An Evaluation of Six Light-Emitting Diode Curing Lights to Cure Two Composites
