UCLA School of Dentistry
Scientists from the UCLA School of Dentistry have been at the vanguard of research in recent years, leading the way in the dynamic, emerging field of diagnostics and translational research.
With the use of fiber reinforced composites (FRCs), it has made many clinical applications in dentistry because of their ability to manipulate the properties of composites to match with structural aspects. The ease of fabrication, easy repair and esthetic properties have ensured that FRC has great promise in all areas of clinical and laboratory dentistry. As we have learned in recent projects at UCLA, FRC also its demonstrating spectacular results as applied to the seismic reinforcment of buildings.
