He spoke at the Panel Discussion "Developing and Training the New Generation of Dentists to Address Complex Health Challenges of the 21st Century”.
The aim of this session was to bring oral health specialists together with dental students to discuss how best to transform dental education to align with the needs of populations worldwide. The conversations on the day helped to model good practice solutions that serve the needs and interests of students.
