Personal profile


My research interests have reflected my background in behavioural dentistry and public health:

  1. patient-centred care with a focus on dentist-patient communication/interaction;
  2. dental anxiety and
  3. oral health inequalities for socially excluded groups.

I am an honorary Professor in Clinical Communication and Dental Public Health and External Examiner with Nanjing Medical University (China). In 2020, I have been recognised by Higher Education Academy (HEA) as a Senior Fellow for my teaching expertise and leadership in clinical communication teaching.

I am the founding chair of the Special Interest Group in Communication Research in Oral Healthcare with the International Association for Communication in Healthcare (EACH). Being their active member of the Research Committee and Teaching Committee of  EACH, I have been working closely with EACH to focus on promoting patient participation and improving clinician-patient communication.

I have been invited to give keynote talks and to provide trainings of dentist-patient communication internationally. In 2018, I was invited by the Austrian Government as a Keynote Panellist in the European Union Chief Medical, Nursing and Dental Officers Meeting. I was also invited by the Belgian Chief Dental Officer to provide a National CPD training in the Flemish Dental Association Conference. 

I welcome research collaboration opportunities with people across different disciplines and please don't  hesitate to contact me by email: s.z.yuan@dundee.ac.uk
