Our research

The Scottish Dental Clinical Effectiveness Programme (SDCEP), provides user-friendly, evidence-based guidance to support dental teams. In addition, we in Dundee have shaped our understating and the application of substrate limitation in managing dental caries. We have other focused research priorities such as oro-facial clefting, dental materials and meeting the dental needs of the homeless and prisoners.

We aspire to have an imperceptible link between effective care of patients and research… you will be part of this.
