Maupome, Gerardo Department of Cariology, Operative Dentistry and Dental Public Health, School of Dentistry / IUPUI
Bio: Gerardo Maupomé is an oral health researcher with primary interests in dental health services research and oral epidemiology, oral treatment needs among patients at high risk of disease or subject to health and social disparities, and analysis of professional practices – including how dental professionals make therapeutic decisions.

He is a Professor with Indiana University School of Dentistry since 2005, and currently has various affiliations with academic organizations in the USA (including IUNI) and in the UK. Dr. Maupomé has been involved in various research projects – spanning from epidemiological studies assessing the impact of public health fluoridation, to clinical trials of chlorhexidine varnishes; from community demonstrations to promote healthier lifestyle decisions, to quantitative appraisals of factors contributing to poor oral health and failure to access dental services; and from qualitative investigations into social and economic determinants of health, to economic analyses of the costs implied in health conditions and associated therapeutic procedures. Some of these studies have been focused on American Indians, people of Mexican and Hispanic origin, those 65 years of age and older, children, and population groups with restricted access to dental services.
