Research Centers of Excellence

Innovation is one of the core values of the UCLA School of Dentistry. Our research faculty, postdoctoral residents, and Masters and PhD candidates are working in our laboratories and research centers to identify problems and seek solutions to improve the oral and systemic health of people throughout the world.

As leaders in dental and oral health research, our work has a great impact and even bigger implications. In addition to educating and exposing the next generation of dentists, scientists, teachers, and leaders to the exciting world of academic research, we are helping to improve oral and systemic health within our communities. Discoveries and breakthroughs made in our laboratories and research centers are translated into clinical applications that have the potential to benefit the local communities and improve worldwide health and well-being.
