Restorative Dentistry and Biomaterials Sciences
The Department of Restorative Dentistry and Biomaterials Sciences encompasses biomaterials, endodontics, implant dentistry, operative dentistry, and prosthodontics. The Division of Regenerative and Implant Sciences is also housed within our department. Our mission reflects that of the School: to attain excellence in teaching, research, and patient care.
Faculty in this department, the largest of HSDM’s clinical departments, are responsible for the majority of didactic and clinical instruction in the predoctoral curriculum. The department also administers advanced graduate programs in endodontics, implant dentistry, and prosthodontics.
Each departmental faculty member is involved in clinical or basic science research, either at HSDM or at an affiliated institution. Full-time department faculty members also treat patients in the Harvard Dental Center Faculty Group Practice. Full- and part-time faculty members supervise both pre- and postdoctoral students in the Harvard Dental Center Teaching Practice.
