Patient Care Setting



For more than 28 years, Dr. Malmstrom has worked to help ease the nerves of patients who are fearful. He is chair of Eastman Dental's General Dentistry Division and program director of its residency program. He has significant clinical and research experience in many areas, but his focus is on comprehensive care, including root canals, gums and tissue, and ways to restore the comfort, appearance and function of the mouth when patients have missing or damaged teeth (prosthodontics). He also has a special interest in cosmetic dentistry (porcelain veneers, crowns and composite bonding) and implant dentistry.

Clinical Trials

Opioid Analgesic Reduction Study (OARS)

Lead Researcher: Hans S Malmstrom

If you take part in the research, you will be asked to complete several questionnaires, to take a pain medication that's provided, and you will be asked to wear an activity monitor for 72 hours. It will take about 15 minutes during your surgery visit and post-operative visit to complete questionnaires. During the post-operative period you will receive electronic messages (via text or email) in the morning and evening. The messages will ask you to complete an eDiary on your smartphone to record pain levels, which will take about 2-3 minutes for each entry. Participants must be age 18+, have at least one wisdom tooth impacted in the lower jaw, and be in generally good health and able to take ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin), acetaminophen (Tylenol), and hydrocodone.
