Overview
Dr. German Gallucci is the Chair of the Department of Restorative Dentistry and Biomaterials Sciences. He received his Doctorate in Dental Medicine (Dr. Med. Dent.) from the University of Geneva, Switzerland. He attended a postdoctoral training at the Department of Fixed Prosthodontics and Occlusion, School of Dental Medicine, University of Geneva where he later became a full-time faculty at the same department. Dr Gallucci also received a Ph.D. from the Free University of Amsterdam. In 2007, Dr. Gallucci established a new Postgraduate Education Program in Oral Implantology at Harvard School of Dental Medicine. Currently, he is the Head of the Division of Regenerative and Implant Sciences in the Department of Restorative Dentistry and Biomaterials Sciences.
Dr. Gallucci participates in lectures, seminars, practical courses and table clinics at national and international meetings and symposia. He authored scientific publications in the field of Fixed Prosthodontics and Implant Dentistry and his work has been mostly published in international peer-reviewed journals. Dr. Gallucci serves as an editorial board member for Journal of Dental Research (JDR), Clinical Oral Implants Research (COIR), and International Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Implants (IJOMI). He is a fellow of the International Team for Implantology (ITI), Switzerland, an active member of the Academy of Osseointegration and the European Academy of Osseointegration.

Fields of Interest
Dr. Gallucci actively participates in clinical and translational research related to Fixed Prosthodontics, Oral Implantology, and applied Digital Dental Technology. He is the Principal Investigator (PI) of the Oral Implantology clinical research team at the Division of Regenerative and Implant Sciences, Harvard School of Dental Medicine.
