Research Impacts

Dr See’s research translation and impact can be seen from her silver fluoride research project. Through her CPL research grant, she was able to gain clinical experience in the use of silver fluoride in adult population and has led to the dissemination of such experience to a wider dental professional and non-dental community in the form of professional presentations, workshops and lectures. She has presented her research at various research and professional platforms. Her silver fluoride research and work in special needs dentistry has provided Dr See opportunities in advocating in this area.
