Oral Biology

The area of Oral Biology aims to train researchers focusing on the study of cells and tissues of interest in Dentistry, evaluating mechanisms related to homeostasis and etiopathogeny of different diseases and proposing treatments and procedures to return the functioning of these cells / tissues.

Responsible for the area: Prof. Dr. Fernando Neves Nogueira



The training offered in the area of Biomaterials emphasizes the critical analysis of relevant issues in Restorative Dentistry, based on the study of basic concepts, current literature and scientific experimentation. Through solid academic training, the student will be able to apply the knowledge acquired in clinical, teaching/research or industry.

Responsible for the area: Prof. Dr. Roberto Ruggiero Braga


Restorative Dentistry

The objective of this area is to study the alterations, pathological or not, that affect the hard tissues of the teeth. Etiology, diagnosis, as well as new operative and restorative techniques have been explored through epidemiological, clinical and laboratory studies seeking to impact the oral health of patients.

Responsible for the area: Dr. Adriana Bona Matos



The area of concentration in Endodontics aims to enable students to deepen their knowledge in pulp and Periapical Biology and in the etiology, prevention, diagnosis and treatment of pathologies, providing means for the development of studies related to the various techniques of treatment, as well as stimulate innovative research related to regenerative Endodontics, Imaging and Pulp Microbiology. Such learning and specific experimentation, added to the training acquired in didactic activities, will also enable the student to be able to transmit their knowledge to the entire dental community.

Responsible for the area: Prof. Dr. Giulio Gavini


Laser in Dentistry

The objectives of the area are to expand knowledge of the basic principles of lasers and their applications by training critical professionals, able to develop laboratory and clinical research, which support the multidisciplinary use of this technology.

Responsible for the area: Professor Patrícia Moreira de Freitas Costa e Silva
