Dr. Walter Siqueira’s saliva and salivary components research provides a wealth of information about how our bodies work and can be used in the detection, prognosis and treatment of oral and systemic diseases. He is also one of the first and only dental clinician-scientists in Canada conducting salivary proteome research.

“This research is important and exciting,” said Dr. Siqueira. “We have been using saliva to look at oral health, but now we’re taking a step further and using it to look at the overall, systemic health of individuals. By doing so, we are changing the way diagnostics will look. We are providing a non-invasive, simpler method to provide individuals with a diagnosis and prognosis.”
