Dr. Arany is currently President-elect of North American Association for Light Therapy, Chair of Lasers in Dentistry, Special interest group of the American Dental Education Association.

Dr. Arany’s research is focused on the molecular mechanisms and clinical applications of light therapy to promote wound healing and tissue regeneration. Dr. Arany's scientific interests have focused on the role of growth factor signaling in wound healing and regeneration. His lab attempts to identify key biological regulatory components that can be used in clinical studies to control biological outcomes. His lab uses a range of cell and molecular biology tools in tissue culture and scaffold-based model systems. Further, a large emphasis is placed on validation in animal models and moving them forward into human clinical studies. His other major areas of interest are the molecular dichotomy of wounds and tumors, cell signaling regulatory networks and Transforming Growth Factor-β biology.

Dr. Kvitko brings you a guided tour from The Dr. John Harris Dental Museum in Bainbridge Ohio

Dr. John Harris, a medical doctor from Cincinnati, settled in Bainbridge in the mid-1820's. In the fall of 1827, he began teaching classes for those who wished to study "preparatory" to entering a medical college. The following spring, his advertisements emphasized his interest in dentistry, a specialty he favored in both practice and instruction.

Dr. John Harris, a medical doctor from Cincinnati, settled in Bainbridge in the mid-1820's. In the fall of 1827, he began teaching classes for those who wished to study "preparatory" to entering a medical college. The following spring, his advertisements emphasized his interest in dentistry, a specialty he favored in both practice and instruction.

The school Dr. Harris founded was short lived. By 1830 he had moved to nearby Chillicothe, abandoning his practice and leaving behind a group of nine students. Although small, this group played an important role in the future of dental education. Two of the students went on to form the first two dental colleges in the United States. Thus, the Dr. John Harris Dental Museum has been designated "The Cradle of Dentistry."

Dr. Harris' home and the site of instruction for the original class stands preserved today as a landmark in the history of dentistry and as a listing on the National Registry of Historic Places.
