Dr. Maupomé is an oral health researcher with primary interests in dental health services research and oral epidemiology, oral treatment needs among patients at high risk of disease or subject to health and social disparities, and analysis of professional practices – including how dental professionals make therapeutic decisions. 

After receiving his dental training at the Universidad Nacional in México City, Dr. Maupomé was awarded a MSc in Experimental Oral Pathology in 1986 and a PhD in Public Health in 1991 from the University of London, in the United Kingdom. He received a diploma in Dental Public Health from the Royal College of Surgeons of England in 1991, and completed a residency in Dental Public Health with Baylor College of Dentistry in 2006. 

From 2000 until 2005, Dr. Maupomé was a researcher with the scientific program of a large HMO in the private sector, the Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Research in Oregon. From 1995 until 2000, Dr. Maupomé was a faculty member at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. He had academic appointments with the Institute of Health Promotion Research and the Department of Oral Health Sciences from 2000 until 2005, and an honorary affiliation with the University of California at San Francisco Dental School from 2002 until 2005. Besides being a Professor with Indiana University School of Dentistry since 2005, he currently has an affiliation with the Regenstrief Institute, Inc. in Indianapolis.

He is also an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Public Health, IUPUI School of Medicine, and an Investigator with the Center for Urban Health in the Schools of Science, of Liberal Arts, and of Medicine, in Indianapolis. Dr. Maupomé is a Visiting Professor with the University of Manchester in the United Kingdom; and an Affiliated Professor, Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, Indiana University at Bloomington.

Dr. Maupomé has been involved in various research projects – spanning from epidemiological studies assessing the impact of public health fluoridation, to clinical trials of chlorhexidine varnishes; from community demonstrations to promote healthier lifestyle decisions, to quantitative appraisals of factors contributing to poor oral health and failure to access dental services; and from qualitative investigations into social and economic determinants of health, to economic analyses of the costs implied in health conditions and associated therapeutic procedures. Some of these studies have been focused on American Indians, people of Mexican and Hispanic origin, those 65 years of age and older, children, and population groups with restricted access to dental services.

Dr. Maupome continues his active research agenda in the following areas: to expand studies in oral epidemiology and dental health services research for all types of populations groups (both in North America and in less developed countries), with special attention to the identification, characterization, evaluation, and contrasts of disease manifestations and associated risk factors. Placing the various disease outcomes in the context of the outcomes derived from treatment courses (preventive and rehabilitative) will remain an important part of his research, using various investigation approaches – in isolation or in combination. Also, the use of mixed-methods to evaluate patterns of professional practices, and how decisions for dental treatment are made, will complement goals for educational research and the creation of an evidence base of innovative clinical approaches to manage oral conditions/diseases.
