Biography

I am interested in the oral health of older adults, specifically, the impact of restorative treatment on health related quality of life and the evaluation of novel clinical treatments on the oral health of older patients.     

Research Interests

I have been actively involved in research activities since 1992. My research interests are:
- geriatric oral research,
- oral rehabilitation with dental implants
- quality of life outcomes following prosthodontic treatment, and,
- health services research (including quality of care provided, implementation of clinical guidelines and   assessment of need/demand for dental care).

The importance of this research lies in the fact that our older adult population is rapidly increasing, and more and more adults are retaining teeth into old age. I am particularly interested in the evaluation of treatment strategies for replacing missing teeth including how they affect quality of life and diet, and evaluating these interventions in primary and secondary care settings. I have published my research in international peer reviewed journals and presented on numerous occasions at national and international research meetings. I have held visiting positions for research purposes in the University of Toronto, Canada and Hong Kong University. I have recently also held a Visiting Professorship at Otago University, New Zealand. I am an active contributor to, and Executive Committee member of, the Geriatric Oral Research Group of the International Association for Dental Research, and have published a textbook on the management of the dentate older adult which is used by dental schools worldwide.

A major part of my research involves assessment of quality of life outcomes, and I have been an invited speaker in Europe, Asia and North America on this topic. I actively collaborate with Prof. D. Locker, University of Toronto, Canada who is a renowned international researcher in this field. I have held visiting positions to the Dental Health Services Research Unit at the University of Toronto, and spent a sabbatical period there in 1996. Prof. Locker and I continue to collaborate on methodology issues involved in quality of life assessment.

Quality of life outcomes are compromised in people who lose their natural teeth, and for many, wearing dentures is not acceptable. Other forms of illness, such as stroke, compromise a person's ability to wear dentures. Finally, diet is compromised when natural teeth are lost and this can in turn lead to compromised health. I am involved in research which investigates, a. diet in older adults, and b. the impact of sophisticated forms of intervention such as implant retained prostheses. This was the subject matter for my PhD, and I have collaborated with research teams in the UK (Prof J. Steele, Prof. M Thomason, University of Newcastle upon Tyne), Hong Kong (Professor A. McMillan, Prince Philip Dental Hospital) and Canada (Prof. J. Feine, McGill University, Montreal). A paper from this work is widely cited [PF ALLEN, AS McMILLAN. A longitudinal study of quality of life outcomes in older adults requesting implant prostheses and complete removable dentures. Clinical Oral Implants Research 2003; 14:173-179.]

In addition to peer reviewed publications, I was a collaborator in a funded, multi-centre international research study, led by Professor Feine, to look at the impact of implant retained overdentures on quality of life and diet in older adults. I have also run randomised clinical trials of implant therapy outcomes (study completed in 2004) and been involved in an RCT comparing different methods of treating elderly partially dentate adults (study completed in 2001). A paper from this trial was published in the Journal of Dental Research [PF ALLEN, JM THOMASON, NJA JEPSON, FS NOHL, DG SMITH, JS ELLIS. A randomised controlled trial of implant retained mandibular overdentures. Journal of Dental Research 2006;85:547-551]

Part of the difficulty with older dentate adults is that attitudes to partial dentures, a removable form of prostheses which replaces a small number of teeth, are poorly understood. Along with co-workers from the Centre for Health Services Research, I was involved in a major study funded by the NHS Regional Health Authority which investigated reasons for this disparity in demand for treatment and professionally assessed need in older adult populations. In addition to the research study, we have also completed a Cochrane Review of the literature in this area, and are currently preparing this for publication. In Ireland, the Department of Health and Children have agreed to fund a parallel study of Irish adults and Dental Practitioners, and this study was completed in 2007. This is now extended to working with the Dept. of Medicine (Geriatrics) and I am supervising a PhD thesis with a colleague in Geriatric Medicine (Dr. Denis O'Mahoney) investigating the relationship between oral health status, general health and quality of life of older adults.

I am a member of an international research colloquium which is investigating the impact of oral problems on quality of life using large national datasets from the UK, Australia and Finland. Our team (Prof. PF Allen, NUI Cork, Ireland; Prof. G Slade and Dr A Sanders, University of Adelaide, Australia; Dr S Lati, University of Oulu, Finland; Prof J Steele, University of Newcastle upon Tyne, UK and Dr. N Nuttall, University of Dundee, UK) has published a number of papers and abstracts in this field, and have found that oral problems have varying impacts in different age groups. We are currently funded by the National Institute for Health (NIH) to develop and international collaborative study of factors influencing response to toothloss and treatment seeking behaviours. This work has been extremely influential in guiding the use of self-report oral health status measures in national population studies, e.g., NHANES-4 and the national adult oral health survey in Australia. A key publication from our group is JG STEELE, AE SANDERS, GD SLADE, PF ALLEN, S LAHTI, N NUTTALL, AJ SPENCER How do age and tooth loss affect oral health impacts and quality of life? A study comparing two national samples. Community Dentistry and Oral Epidemiology 2004;32:107-114.

Oral rehabilitation possibilities for younger adults with congenital absence of teeth have also improved, and further research into outcomes of their treatment is required. I have commenced a new collaborative effort with colleagues in the University of Nijmegen with a view to assessing resin bonded bridges and dental implants for these patients. This will involve PhD students in both centres working on different aspects of the research under one single theme.

RESEARCH PLAN:

- To build a core group of researchers in Cork Dental School and Hospital with a primary interest in Geriatric Oral Research and oral rehabilitation with fixed prostheses. This will include primary and secondary members from staff within the Dental School and affiliated staff from other units in UCC.
- To achieve this by increasing the number of PhD students involved in this research activity.
- To develop further research links with Geriatrics, Food Science and Public Health through joint supervision of PhD students.
- To build a new research link with the University of Nijmegen, the Netherlands, to investigate functionally orientated treatment planning for older adults and to develop evidence based clinical guidelines for restorative management of patients with Hypodontia.
- To consolidate my established international research links, particularly with the international consortium on Oral Health Quality of Life research (described earlier).
- To increase research income by targeting grant applications to the Health Research Board in Ireland and joint applications to international funding streams such as the NIH in the United States.
- To raise the international profile of oral research in Cork Dental School & Hospital by presenting this research at national and international research meetings.
