       Overview 
       Overview
      John Featherstone, MSc, PhD, is Professor of Preventive and Restorative Dental Sciences at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) and Dean of the School of Dentistry. He earned his M.Sc. in physical chemistry from the University of Manchester (UK) and a Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of Wellington (New Zealand).

      His research over the past 34 years has covered several aspects of cariology (study of tooth decay) including fluoride mechanisms of action, caries risk assessment, de- and remineralization of the teeth, apatite chemistry, salivary dysfunction, caries (tooth decay) prevention, and laser effects on dental hard tissues with emphasis on caries prevention and early caries removal. He is currently active in implementing caries management by risk assessment in several dental schools across the nation.

      He has won numerous national and international awards, including the International Association for Dental Research distinguished scientist award for research in dental caries (2000), the Zsolnai Prize from the European Caries Research Organization (2002) for his lifelong contributions to caries research, the “Ericsson Prize in Preventive Dentistry” by the Swedish Patent Fund (2002) and the Norton Ross Award for excellence in clinical research from the American Dental Association (2007).

      He has published over 200 manuscripts and book chapters. He is the principal investigator on one National Institutes of Health RO1 grant and co-investigator on five other NIH grants.
