The purpose of research at Marquette University School of Dentistry is the generation of knowledge that leads to dissemination of information and development of new products that improve oral, dental and craniofacial health. The dental school supports both basic and clinical research and shares its discoveries with the professional community in order to facilitate and improve public health as is consistent with the mission of Marquette University. The research also engages students and prepares them for independent discovery as well as careers in their respective specializations.

An Investment in the Future of Dentistry
With the advent and ongoing promotion of “evidence-based dentistry,” there is an increasing need for expanding and validating the current and future knowledge base of the dental profession. Marquette University School of Dentistry has a significant role in contributing to this knowledge base. In fact, research and its importance to the advancement of the
knowledge base of dentistry represent an important aspect of the current Strategic Plan of the dental school. Research is one of five important themes found in our current strategic plan and therefore represents one of our measures of success. I am excited and encouraged by the many opportunities for the dental school to contribute to the research mission of the institution and beyond. I fully support and am committed to continuing
to enhance the research efforts of the School of Dentistry.
