After earning his DDS in 2014 and his Certificate in Prosthodontics in 2017, Dr. Ghaith Darwish has remained at the College, joining the faculty part-time as a Clinical Instructor in Restorative Dentistry.
Dr. Darwish explained that he “supervises students doing various dental procedures, ensuring that they are excellent and competent clinicians upon graduation,” and that he is driven to help patients who need his skill set “to be able to live healthy and productive lives again.”
He noted that in his residency that he “gained an in-depth experience related to the philosophies and principles of prosthodontics treatment: fixed, removable, implant, maxillofacial prosthodontics, the fundamental rationale of clinical and laboratory techniques, CAD/CAM, biomechanics, and dental material selection.”
His research is on ways to improve poly-methyl-methacrylate (PMMA) using a nano-ceramic coating.
Dr. Darwish is a member of the Omicron Kappa Upsilon Honor Society and is currently seeking a Master’s degree at UIC.
