Helen Rodd
Professor of Paediatric Dentistry/Honorary Consultant and Head of Oral Health and Development, School of Clinical Dentistry, University of Sheffield, UK

Professor Helen Rodd qualified at Bristol University in 1988 and then completed three years of general professional training. She completed specialist training in paediatric dentistry in Sheffield in 1997 before undertaking three years of full-time research as an MRC research fellow. Helen was awarded her PhD in 2000 and was made a senior lecturer/honorary consultant at Sheffield Dental School in 2002. She was appointed Professor in 2006.

Helen’s main area of research interest to date has focused on the innervation and inflammation of human primary and permanent teeth. This has involved largely laboratory-based enquiry. More recently she has been undertaking multidisciplinary studies with colleagues in the social sciences to gain an insight into the impact of dental conditions and related treatment in children and young people. This work has involved a range of child-centred methodologies.

Helen has held a number of national and international roles including Editor of the International Journal of Paediatric Dentistry; Member of the Specialist Advisory Committee in Paediatric Dentistry; Examiner for the ISFE in paediatric dentistry, President of the British Society of Paediatric Dentistry, and Chairman of the scientific committee of the 2015 meeting of the International Association of Paediatric Dentistry.
