Dr. Freilich is a professor in the Department of Reconstructive Sciences at the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine. He has been treating patients in the dental faculty practice, teaching and conducting research since joining the University of Connecticut in 1985. He is the director of pre-prosthetic/implant surgery in the division of prosthodontics. He also serves as the principal investigator of studies developing new methods of jaw bone re-growth and as the principal investigator of a clinical study studying the relationship between osteoporosis and jaw bone re-growth. Dr. Freilich has written many scientific articles, review articles and chapters. In addition to his receipt of patents related to dental biomaterials, he has patents pending related to the regeneration of bone and implant dentistry.
