Chukwuebuka Ogwo is an assistant professor at the Kornberg School of Dentistry and director of the Masters in Oral Health Sciences program. Dr. Ogwo earned his dental degree from the University of Nigeria in 2012. He received his master’s degree in International Health and Public Health from the Royal Tropical Institute – Vrije Universiteit Netherlands and a master’s degree in Public Health from Western Illinois University. He completed his dental public health residency training and Ph.D. in oral sciences for the University of Iowa. Ogwo has special interest and advanced training in epidemiology, biostatistics and data science. His primary research interest is in the application of artificial intelligence (machine learning) in public health dentistry and modeling dental outcomes. He also has interest in global oral health research and recently developed a cluster randomized controlled trials for a behavioral intervention that can be used to improve oral health outcome in low income countries. Some of his past works with artificial intelligence include the prediction of dental caries in young adults using supervised machine learning techniques; Modeling the trajectory of dental caries over a life course using unsupervised machine learning techniques. He is currently working on innovative deep learning techniques for the automated detection of tooth decay from intra-oral images.
