Clinical research is regularly conducted in our practice with strong links to a number of universities. At various times our patients may be asked to take part in one of these projects when suitable. Please note: there is absolutely no obligation for patients to take part in any of these projects.

Brisbane City Periodontics and Implants has an educational affiliation with a number of universities including Griffith University and the University of Queensland and James Cook University. This affiliation is for the purposes of research and education. At times patients may be asked to participate in a study under the care and supervision of our senior periodontists and in collaboration with post-doctoral research fellows. There is no obligation for patients to accept participation. Their decision is always respected.
