Biography

He is a professor of prosthodontics with tenure track position at Hacettepe University, Faculty of Dentistry mainly for education & research(clinical/preclinical) activities, and maintains clinical practice in his private dental office in Ankara.

He integrates educational/research expertise and skills in the field of Dental Implantology, Digital Dentistry and Evidence Based Dentistry with daily clinical practice. Accordingly, his focus of interest is optimization of evolving dental technologies in treatment planning and clinical practice of teeth/implant supported fixed prosthesis both in esthetic and functional zone.

His h-index (WoS) is 27 established by more than 80 scientific articles in international journals. He is an associate editor of International Journal of Oral&Maxillofacial Implants, and an editorial board member of Journal of Dentistry and Medical Engineering&Physics. He is a fellow of ITI (International Team for Implantology).
