Biography of Prof. William Brantley

William A. Brantley (PhD) is an Executive Fellow of IAAM and Professor Emeritus in the College of Dentistry at Ohio State University. He has been a faculty member at Ohio State since 1989, retiring from the full-time faculty as Professor of Restorative and Prosthetic Dentistry in 2017 to serve in a part-time emeritus faculty capacity. After receiving his PhD in Metallurgy and Materials Science from Carnegie-Mellon University (1968), he had positions at the US Army Materials and Mechanicals Research Center (1968 – 1970), performing research on ceramic armor, and Bell Laboratories (1970 – 1974), performing research on compound semiconductors. He served as a faculty member at the Marquette University School of Dentistry from 1974 to 1989, becoming Professor and Chair of the Department of Dental Materials, before joining Ohio State University. Professor Brantley developed graduate programs in Dental Materials at both institutions. He has mentored nine PhD students and seven postdoctoral researchers. His dental materials publications lie in the areas of endodontic, orthodontic, prosthodontic / implant, and restorative materials. His two major research areas at Ohio State University have been (1) palladium alloys for metal-ceramic dental restoration, funded by the National Institute for Dental Research (NIH) and (2) nickel-titanium alloys for orthodontics and endodontics. He is coauthor for two seminal publications on the nickel-titanium alloy for endodontics, along with other publications presenting novel characterization results for several dental materials. He is co-editor / author for two textbooks on orthodontic materials and a third book on the in vivo aging of dental materials. Professor Brantley is a member of the International / American Associations for Dental Research, the Academy of Dental Materials, ASM International, and TMS.
