Statement


Since I started my dental education and during my long term dental career I understood the necessity of dental research. As strong believer of dental research I began my research career during my Oral Surgery program, where was presented with the opportunity to select my thesis project. Because of my strong interest in translational research, I proposed the study entitled: “Effects of Pulsed Electromagnetic Field on Mandibular Fracture Healing” to explore efficacy of pulsed electromagnetic field on reducing the recovery time frame required for closed reduction therapy by 50%, resulting in possible reduction in cost, increased patient satisfaction and quality of life.
As a second year resident of Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) Program at Lutheran Medical Center (LMC), I conducted a research project entitled “Why Hamilton dental patients “no show” (a retrospective cohort analytic study)” which was recognized as national PGY2 entries as the top LMC-AEGD research for 2014. The manuscript summarizing the study is currently targeting submission to the Journal of the American Dental Association (JADA). I continue to actively collaborate with other residents on their research projects. I have also served as a peer reviewer on scientific manuscripts.
My primary goal as a research fellow is to further expand my expertise to include oral health informatics and leverage my previous clinical experiences to evolve and contribute to translating oral health informatics research into the clinical settings to enhance patient care and to gain expertise in testing their potential impact in advanced clinical trials. Under the mentorship of IOSH’s director, Dr. Amit Acharya, I will be conducting a study entitled “Dental Emergency Pilot Program: A New Approach to Decrease Non-Traumatic Dental Related Emergency Department Visits”.


Research Interests


My areas of interests include, but are not limited to; clinical work flow related problems like triaging dental related ER visits to appropriate settings, reducing no-show rates etc. as well as clinical problems related to bone healing, soft tissue healing, early detection of oral cancer, TMJ disorder, nerve repair, pain control and oral pathology.
