Dean's Message

From Dr. Berg

"We believe that dentistry must be firmly grounded in a foundation of basic and applied science, and we support this approach through wide-ranging research in evidence-based dentistry, dental materials, oral biology, oral medicine, behavioral science and other disciplines."
