Research Laboratory For Oral-Systemic Health

A transformative shift is underway in the realm of patient care, forging a new paradigm that bridges the fields of dentistry and medicine. With an increasingly comprehensive understanding of the oral systemic connection, dentists are poised to assume a more pivotal role in safeguarding the overall health of their patients. It is becoming evident that dentists, who possess the expertise to diagnose oral and periodontal diseases, can contribute significantly to detecting and addressing systemic health conditions at their early stages. Oftentimes, the initial manifestations of underlying systemic abnormalities manifest in observable changes within the oral cavity. This emerging reality underscores the vital importance of dentists in promoting holistic well-being and underscores the necessity for greater integration between dental and medical practices.


The research laboratory for Oral-systemic health aims to research the direct link between oral microbiome to varied systemic diseases.


The research laboratory will aim to achieve excellence by promoting Quality Research, Knowledge and collaboration.
