Research Interests

My main research interest is on optimum methods to manage root caries. There are still areas that require intensive research on root caries especially with our ageing population worldwide.

Following extensive investigations to design an ozone delivery system for dental purposes, I became the third inventor of ozone delivery system for the management of root caries:

My research related to Duraphat Toothpaste (5000 ppm, Colgate) was recommended in the Department of Health Guidelines for delivering better oral health and shared on social media extensively.

Deparment of Health Guidelines for delivering better oral health

I recently established a link with the Institute of Bioengineering at QMUL. Professor Alvaro Mata and I received the Life Science Initiative Award of £50,000 to work on a novel bioactive membrane for the regeneration of dental hard tissues.

I have also supervised PhD and MSc students on various projects. One of the clinical PhD projects I am currently supervising titled ‘The effect of dental varnishes for the management of root caries in patients with xerostomia’ received research funding of £4,936 from The Novo Nordisk UK Research Foundation to screen the diabetes database of east London (over 5,000 patients) for dry mouth and root caries. In addition to this, the Oral B Dental Company provided £5,200 for the toothbrushes and toothpastes throughout the one-year trial.

 In addition, I established and led on another unique collaboration with the diabetes team at Barts Health to investigate a link between diabetes, dry mouth and root caries in the east London area. This screening process is unique to the School of Medicine and Dentistry, and the related study was then approved to be included in the NIHR portfolio. To date, there is no consensus on how to manage dental caries, especially root caries, in patients with dry mouth. We are establishing whether dental varnishes could be the best practice for these patients. The ultimate aim is to develop clinical guidelines for the management of root caries in patients with dry mouth.

I was awarded to various national and international prizes throughout my career. Some of them are listed here:

June 2016 - The clinical case report I wrote with one of the Final Year dental students received   National    Dental Undergraduate Clinical Case Award 2016, Royal College of Physician andSurgeon of Glasgow’s, UK

Feb 2015 - The research project received a Travel Fellowship from the European Organisation of Caries Research (ORCA) under my supervision

June 2008 - Travel grant from The International Journal of Prosthodontics (IJP) for Teachers’ Prosthodontics Workshop organised by The International Journal of Prosthodontics (IJP) and the Institute for Advanced Dental Studies, Karlsruhe, Germany.

March 2005 -The Procter and Gamble Award for Geriatric Oral Research for the Best Research on the Use of Oral Care Products from Geriatric Oral Research Group at the International Association of Dental Research

April 2000 - The Morita Investigator Award for the Best Clinical Science Presentation from Geriatric Oral Research Group at the International Association of Dental Research.

May 1998 - A Colgate Research Award from the Oral and Dental Research Trust, UK

Sept 1998 - The QED/Maillefer Prize for the Best Research Poster at the British Association of Conservative Teachers in Dentistry

I am involved actively at the International Association of Dental Research in Cariology Research Group and previously in the Gerodontology Research Group.
