Areas of scientific interest

Main research activity is the assessment of the clinical classification criteria of caries, the assessment of different methods and systems for the caries diagnosis, the treatment of cervical dentin hypersensitivity, the caries risk assesment and the clinical management of caries lesions. Also, my research interest is the histology and biology of hard dental tissues and their interaction with dental biomaterials.
