ABSTRACT Internationally renown as a researcher in the use of adhesive plastic materials to repair or save damaged teeth or as the researcher that developed pit and fissure sealants, can be considered, in a more categorical form, that Michael G. Buonocore is to modern dentistry much more than that, his work and contribution has not only changed dramatically the different aspects of dental therapeutics but also, the perception of people and patients about dentists, the dental treatments and the current adhesive dentistry.
