Dr. Feine's research centers on providing a scientific basis for the selection of therapies for chronic orofacial conditions. These studies have dealt, in part, with outcomes assessment of implant-supported prostheses, and the effects of maxillary implant prostheses on speech. The results of her numerous studies have been extensively documented in peer-reviewed journals and have had a beneficial effect on the practice of implant dentistry. Dr. Feine has had a long and productive career and has made numerous contributions to prosthodontics.
Supported by Procter & Gamble Denture Care and given in memory of Willard J Tarbet, this award was established to encourage and give recognition to outstanding research accomplishments in the field of prosthodontics. The Research in Prosthodontics and Implants Award is one of the 15 Distinguished Scientist Awards conferred annually by the IADR, representing the highest honor the IADR can bestow.
