Dental Materials is a basic program within the Department of Dental Science with the aim of understanding the physical and chemical properties of dental materials used in dental clinics and to impart knowledge through academic systematization of the differences in clinical applications and handling methods according to the characteristics of the material. The department has manufacturing equipment and various analytical laboratory devices for material experiments, and has all the equipment necessary for laboratory practice for undergraduate and graduate students. By implementing cutting-edge technology, the department puts a focus on developing new composite resins and dental alloys, on developing a multi-purpose hydrophilic dentin binder, on research for surface modification of implant materials, on research for highly effective dental polyvinyl siloxane impression materials, and on research for biocompatibility assessment of dental materials.
