Personal profile

Research Interests

I am specialist in Restorative Dentistry and Prosthodontics working as a Consultant in the Belfast NHS Health and Social Care Trust.  My clinical duties are based in the Centre for Dentistry, Queens University Belfast where I also provide clinical supervision and teaching for dental undergraduates. I am a Principal Investigator based within the Centre for Public Health and a member of the Nutrition and Metabolism and Health Services Research Groups. My research is centred around optomising treatment options for older patients which positively impact their dental and overall health. My current position combines research, clinical teaching and specialist patient care.  

I am the immediate past President of the Irish Division of the International Association for Dental Research (IADR) and past President of the European College of Gerodontology (ECG).  I am the Vice President of the Geriatric Oral Research Group (GORG) at IADR.  

My research interests include:

1. Gerodontology

2. Links between oral health and nutrition

3. Patient centred outcomes including Quality of Life measures

4. Health economics

5. Head and neck oncology
