Our Research

The Department of Periodontology is proud to be an integral part of the UNC School of Dentistry’s research missions. Across the school and the UNC campus, there are many opportunities for those interested in research.

Within the department, we offer a variety of pre-clinical, translational and clinically-based research opportunities. Individuals enrolled in MPH or PhD programs, as well as those in the department’s master’s program, work under the direction of program supervisor or mentor.

Additionally, many of the department faculty are heavily involved in research efforts. The department consists of many through-leaders in periodontology and a number of the faculty are published in peer-reviewed dental journals on a regular basis.
