Improving daily dental practiceThis research group seeks to increase the value for money in health and dental care by gaining knowledge and improving the implementation of evidence-informed strategies in health policy and daily dental practice.
AimsTo warrant the best quality of oral healthcare, it is essential that it is both accessible and affordable as well as patient-centered and evidence-informed. The overarching aim of this research group is to strengthen value-oriented oral healthcare by making the best use of available resources, evidence, and stakeholder preferences. Stakeholders include citizens, clinicians, insurers and policy.
In other words: emphasizing patient-centered, prevention-oriented and sustainable oral healthcare.
Our core aims include
- Identifying cost-effective and equitable approaches for prevention and treatment of oral diseases by using evidence-informed design of suitable provider payment mechanisms.
- Implementing reflective feedback systems and developing state-of-the-art information technology for continuous improvement of quality and safety of oral healthcare.
- Enhancing strategies that transfer knowledge into clinical practice and health policy with the use of comprehensive stakeholder engagement.

Orthodontists interfere with the biological system of the patient. The important question is how to optimize the biological response in order to improve treatment efficiency and stability. Thus integration of biological knowledge and clinical experience is essential.read more
Orthodontics and craniofacial biologyOrthodontists interfere with the biological system of the patient. The important question is how to optimize the biological response in order to improve treatment efficiency and stability. Thus integration of biological knowledge and clinical experience is essential. Research themes include:
- etiology in cleft and craniofacial malformations;
- wound healing and regenerative procedures in cleft palate;
- improvement of interdisciplinary treatment of syndromic, orthognathic and dental malformation;
- patient-related experience measures (PREMs) and oral health-related quality of life (OHrQol) in orthodontics;
- patients with 3D techniques and advanced orthodontic appliances;
- risk factors affecting treatment.
- cleft palate etiology and regeneration (RIMLS);
- personalized orthodontic and craniofacial care (RIHS).
