Project Description:

I am a clinical specialist in Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics, as well as a second-year PhD student at the Department of Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics, Semmelweis University. My focus of interest is a type of developmental defect of the enamel, Molar Incisor Hypomineralization (MIH). I am working on a meta-analysis of clinical risk factors which can influence the development of the affected teeth, aiming to establish the strength between early childhood medical problems and MIH, and recognize opportunities for prevention. My other interest is the evaluation of current interventions for Molar Incisor Hypomineralization. Clinical management is a challenge because of the poor quality of the enamel, the aim is to optimize the methods which reduce hypersensitivity, and dental fear, arrest caries progression and help clinicians in decision-making.
