The Sir John Walsh Research Institute has been recently established within the faculty of Dentistry at the University of Otago and provides a focus for dental research not only within New Zealand but also within the Pacific.

The Institute has produced its first research report and contains examples of exciting research that is having a large impact on the world of clinical dentistry, technology and oral health. We invite you to read this report which also provides information on your colleagues who have cast a wide net of collaborative research across Australasia and further afield.
