Research Interests

Focused on periodontal/implant related clinical researches. The utilization of barrier membranes, various bone grafting and techniques or growth factors in guided tissue/bone regeneration or tissue engineering in attempts to repair and/or regenerate various periodontal and implant-related defects. Oral plastic surgery to enhanced esthetics in natural dentition as well as dental implant.  Implant related subjects such as implant esthetic, immediate implant placement, immediate implant loading, flapless implant surgery as well as advanced bone grafting (e.g., autogenic or allogenic monocortical onlay grafting, sinus augmentation, and guided bone augmentation for horizontal and vertical bone gain, etc.).
