Dr. Vidal joined the Department of Operative Dentistry at the UI College of Dentistry in 2016.
Dr. Vidal’s primary research focus is the study of factors involved in the degradation of the dentin organic matrix in adhesive interfaces and caries progression, with emphasis on collagen, endogenous proteolytic enzymes and proteoglycans.
