Jonathan Fillmore, D.M.D., M.D., conducts clinical research examining outcomes for patients undergoing a variety of oral and facial surgeries. His clinical studies range from routine dental extractions in medically compromised patients to evaluation of different methods of complex facial reconstructions in order to improve patient quality of life and return to function. In addition, Dr. Fillmore has a special interest in improving resident education. He studies mentorship and education methods to this end.
Dr. Fillmore's clinical research efforts help establish guidelines for patient care to mitigate risks of treatment and minimize unnecessary medical procedures. In addition, he and his colleagues are working to improve protocols for postoperative pain in patients undergoing reconstructive surgery of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), which will improve the surgical experience and hasten postoperative recovery and return to normal activity.
Education research helps the specialty improve methods of teaching the next generation of surgeons in order to meet patients' needs in a constantly evolving, complex medical environment.
