Research Interests

Provide a brief statement as to the impact on the discipline of the research carried out by you and its context.

Oral and Maxillofacial surgery is a clinical subject which relies on clinical research for development. The main thrust of our research is through our new D Clin Dent post-graduate program. This program, which is of 3 year duration, is completing its first cycle in December 2008. The research projects have just been defended successfully. Both projects are of clinical benefit to the evidence based management of patients. I expect a number of papers for scientific journals to be published on the back of this research.
A new program will begin in July 2009 however as we have lost one of the wings of the program ( Mid Western Regional Hospital) only 1 post grad is going to start in july 2009. This will reduce the research out put. However we now have a model for producing clinical research in the form of a research degrees and subsequent scientific papers. This will ensure we keep producing research that will advance the decipline.
