Our dental researchers use advanced diagnostics and discovery science to identify the underlying causes of periodontal (gum), implant, and oral-maxillofacial conditions.

Our goal is to develop more targetted and individualized treatments for oral-maxillofacial conditions that are complex and difficult to treat, using personalized treatment protocols. For example, we are working towards treatments based on molecular information that we gather from the patient’s own biological samples.

Researchers are focused on identifying physical biomarkers that can be used to better diagnose and treat these conditions.

The approaches used in the Centre are based on programs and diagnostic/treatment models already piloted by the Faculty of Dentistry, University of Toronto and are now being expanded by Mount Sinai Hospital’s dentistry leadership.
