September 2021 – Rubelisa Candido Gomes de Oliveira

0 288

Rubelisa Candido Gomes de Oliveira, is a Postdoctoral Scholar at the College of Dentistry at the University of Kentucky, Lexington, in the Center for Oral Health Research. She has been involved in clinical research since her second year of dental school in Brazil, and has worked with underserved populations since 1995. Gomes de Oliveira has a broad background in Periodontology and Health Service, with specific training and expertise in clinical evaluation and secondary data analysis on aspects related to treatment protocol implementation. Her research includes bone quality analysis and periodontal factors associated with tooth loss in different racial/ethnic backgrounds. When she was offered the opportunity to conduct research in the United States, she saw a chance to study new ways of understanding the intrinsic and extrinsic factors involved in caries and periodontal disease and their susceptibility, and to investigate which actions can be taken to early detect most significant risks and then to prevent and control disease in a highly effective and low-cost way.
