Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences


Dr. Taseef H. Farook's expertise and interests lie within the sphere of digital healthcare; medical image processing (CT, CBCT etc.), disease pathophysiology and computerized diagnostics, laser scanning and intraoral scanning; clinical photography, photomicrography and stereophotogrammetry; CAD-CAM assisted prosthetic rehabilitation; low-cost digitization approach to dentistry; medico-ethics, public health and academic teaching; artificial intelligence & medical machine learning; and research on sustainability and stability of prosthetic and 3D rapid prototyping materials.

Dr. Farook conferred his license to practice dentistry (BDS) in Bangladesh, after which he completed his Master’s degree (MSc Dent) in Maxillofacial Prosthetics from Malaysia. Dr. Farook is now undertaking research as a PhD candidate at Adelaide Dental School with a research interest in digitization of maxillo-mandibular relationships, malocclusion, temporomandibular joint disorders, cariology, digital imaging, and medical AI. He has successfully authored several medical peer-reviewed publications with highly reputed publishers (Elsevier, Nature, Wiley, Sage, MDPI, and Hindawi) based on his research on feasible digitization of dental and maxillofacial rehabilitation.
