Research

Andrew Tawse-Smith's research platform is based on clinical research in oral implantology, periodontology and dental education. He has been involved in the prospective evaluation of patients rehabilitated with oral implants. Selected peri-implant parameters have been measured to evaluate implant success, survival rates, health of peri-implant tissues and patient satisfaction. As a part of the University of Otago–International Medical University (IMU) BDS partnership agreement, he has evaluated the transition of IMU students into the University of Otago dental curriculum.
