A well-known researcher in the field of oral biology, Thomas Diekwisch has served as the Allan G. Brodie Endowed Chair and Director of the Brodie Laboratory for Craniofacial Genetics at the University of Illinois at Chicago since 2001.
"Thanks to researchers like Tom Diekwisch, the day is at hand when people won’t need false teeth. No more dentures afloat in a bedside glass. No more embarrassing lisps. 'Regenerative dentistry will allow patients to use their own dentition longer,' said Diekwisch (DEEK-wish), head of oral biology in the College of Dentistry. 'This will improve their ability to eat and speak, and also their overall sense of self-worth.'”
