Fischell Institute, FDA Collaborators Investigate Biocompatibility of 3D-Printed Dental Devices
Fischell Institute faculty member Lex Schultheis and director William Bentley are leading a series of biocompatibility studies on 3D-printed dental devices. This research is part of a University of Maryland Center of Excellence in Regulatory Science (M-CERSI) project initiative aimed at informing FDA reviews regarding the likelihood that novel 3D printing methods of dental devices will cause adverse reactions in patients such as allergic, inflammatory, or toxicological reactions.
