Research Interests / Professional Overview

Investigations in the periodontal-systemic disease link and health disparities in populations.


Dr. Yip's research includes investigations of the periodontal-systemic disease link: assessing whether periodontal disease is a risk factor for cardiovascular events, investigating if treatment of periodontal disease in patients with systemic disease improves the clinical outcome of the existing systemic condition; and examining the role of cultural, social and economic factors with respect to health behaviors, access to care and disparities in health.
