The Clinical Research Section (CRS) has been
established to assist the faculty at Indiana University School of
Dentistry accomplish their clinical research studies. It is housed in
the Graduate Operative Dentistry Program clinic on the fourth floor of
the dental school.
The CRS can accommodate up to three studies
simultaneously. It is staffed by Dr. Bruce A. Matis as the Director and
Ms Susan Plymale as the Receptionist. We hire dental assistants as
needed for the various studies. All studies accomplished in the CRS are
approved by the Institutional Review Board at Indiana University Purdue
University Indianapolis campus.
We have accomplished studies on Tooth Whitening
(In-office and At-home treatments), degradation (Carbamide Peroxide and
Hydrogen Peroxide), resin adhesive studies (Resin and Glass Ionomer) and
gingival sensitivity. The CRS is anxious to help you in your research
needs. We ask for an opportunity to write a protocol in studies
involving any of the above areas.
