Dental Informatics

The Center for Dental Informatics (CDI) at the School of Dental Medicine is a world leader in the emerging discipline of dental informatics. Three faculty, Titus Schleyer, Thankam Thyvalikakath and Heiko Spallek, as well as several trainees and staff, are conducting research on informatics projects in dental practice, research, education and management. Through the CDI, the DBMI Training Program offers a specialization in dental informatics. In addition, the CDI has created the Dental Informatics Online Community, a virtual forum for people interested in dental informatics worldwide. An up-to-date publication list is available on the CDI publications page.
