Biography

Dr. Shaddox has been working at University of Florida College of Dentistry Department of Periodontology since 2006. Since her second year of dental school, Shaddox has actively participated in the scientific research development in Periodontology, both nationally and internationally. She joined the University of Florida Oral Biology department as a research scholar in 2004, developing part of her Ph.D. thesis project involving the microbiology of smokers with periodontal disease. Following a pos-doctoral fellowship in Periodontal Microbiology, she joined the Periodontology department in 2006. She has been the director of the main Periodontology course for DMD students since 2008, participates in undergraduate and graduate teaching, several college committees and has an intense research program, for which she devotes majority of her time.
Shaddox main research study, funded by the National Institutes of Health, is aimed at evaluating immunological, microbiological and genetic factors involved with localized aggressive periodontal disease in children and adolescents. Shaddox’s recent NIH R01 grant renewal is aimed to expanding this cohort to tease out possible genetic markers and specific inflammatory mechanisms playing a role in this disease.
She has also been leading a clinical research project to investigate the relationship between periodontal disease and type II Diabetes Mellitus and their inflammatory response, and how this relationships is related to their clinical response to periodontal treatment.
Shaddox is the recipient of several awards, including the prestigious American Academy of Periodontology Teaching Fellowship Award and the University of Florida Assistant Professor Excellence Award. She has authored and co-authored over 35 peer-reviewed publications and has mentored several students with interest in research, many of whom were also awarded for their research endeavors at national and international meetings. Shaddox was promoted to Associated Professor with Tenure at University of Florida in 2012 and continues to further the knowledge of many on periodontal diseases through her research development and teaching.
