Listening to the science?

How can clinicians help themselves by closer inspection of the science pertaining the materials we use every day?

Freedom to think or slaves to the Schtick?

Dr. Paul Hooi, PhD (biotech engineer, dentist, and practice principal) and I take the opportunity to ponder our options with Brian. Enjoy!

Dr. Brian W Darvell was formerly Professor and Chairman of the Department of Bioclinical Sciences in the faculty of Dentistry at Kuwait University. Prior to this he spent nearly 30 years in the Department of Dental Materials Science in the Faculty of Dentistry at the University of Hong Kong. Dr. Darvell, a Chartered Scientist and Chartered Chemist, is still active in the field, holding an honorary professorship at the University of Birmingham (UK), and is a fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3), the Royal Statistical Society and the Academy of Dental Materials. He serves on the Editorial Board of the journal Dental Materials.

Brian is the author of Materials Science for Dentistry, Tenth Edition, a standard resource for undergraduate and postgraduate courses in dentistry. It provides fundamental coverage of the materials on which dentistry depends, covering the structure and chemistry that govern the behavior and performance of materials.
