DDS and Dental Hygiene Student Research

Through the college’s Student Research Program (SRP), Ohio State DDS and dental hygiene students are exposed to research methodology, the scientific method and the generation of new and useful knowledge.

Working with a faculty member on a research project, they develop skills in research techniques, report writing and presentation. In fact, their projects may lead to publication or formal public presentation at a local, national or international research meeting.

Students and faculty members participate in clinical and laboratory research in areas such as:

  • dental materials science
  • oral and maxillofacial pathology
  • hard tissue biology
  • microbiology
  • neuroscience
  • immunology
