Dr Sandleen is a lecturer (2023- ongoing) in restorative dentistry at the University of Queensland. She is an interdisciplinary researcher, and her expertise lies in translational research in cariology,biomaterials and regenerative medicine. Her background in clinical dentistry also persuaded her to work in close collaboration with materials scientists, clinicians and industry partners to provide minimally invasive restorative treatment options to patients. She received her doctorate from the University of Otago (New Zealand), discovering a novel route for keratin extraction using ionic liquids to design alveolar bone grafts. She worked as Research Assistant (2021-2023) for Health Research Council, New Zealand funded project to formulate a smart toothpaste for improved oral health outcomes.She is a passionate medical educator involved in undergraduate and postgraduate teaching in New Zealand, Australia and overseas.
