Welcome to the Cariology Research Laboratory
Dr. Fontana's clinical resarch interests relate primarily to caries management in children, including risk assessment, dental sealants, oral biofilms in caries development and/or prevention (including therapies that may affect the biofilm, such as xylitol), secondary caries, caries remineralization and early caries detection. Her work has received funding from the National Institutes of Health, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the Delta Dental Foundation, and private industry.
Dr. González research interests are mostly related to increasing our understanding of dental caries and erosion and their clinical management. He is regularly engaged in numerous research projects; many of them in collaboration with other institutions from all over the world. Dr. González has particular interest in secondary caries, dental erosion-abrasion, remineralization, fluorides, and oral health products in general (e.g., dentifrices, rinses, toothbrushes, etc.).
Dr. Peters’ research focus is clinical management of dental caries. She has extensive experience in leading clinical research studies in national and international collaborative settings. Current clinical studies concentrate on early intervention of the dental caries process by means of non-invasive, micro-invasive and minimally invasive clinical management. Projects include modification of biofilm environment, remineralization, lesion infiltration and bioactive ion-releasing restorative materials.
