“I’ve worked in materials research investigating the efficacy of a newer curing light, the Ivoclar Vivadent Bluephase PowerCure, which can cure composites in as little as 3-5 seconds, compared to a traditional 20-second light. I assessed how well the light works in terms of depth of cure, and intend to continue to expand research on this new curing light. It’s really interesting and gratifying to gain first-hand knowledge on the newer materials and equipment in the field!”

We hope to see you at the Research Mixer on Nov. 16 at 3pm in the Alumni Lounge!
