GSDM hosted the 2012 Jay Siebert Tri-School Symposium on April 27 and 28, at the Boston Common Hotel and Conference Center. Post-doctoral residents from GSDM, New York University College of Dentistry, and the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine presented a wide variety of research related to periodontics and implant dentistry. Students and faculty from the periodontics and prosthodontics departments at each of the three schools attended.
Five GSDM post-doctoral residents presented including Cynthia Yee PERIO 12, “Piezocision: Periodontically Accelerated Orthodontic Tooth Movement While Correcting Hard and Soft Tissue Deficiencies;” Roozbeh Khosravi ORAL BIO 13, “New Insights into Poor Healing of Bones in Diabetes;” Zeina Nseir PERIO 12, “Microsurgery in Periodontal Plastic Surgery: Minimally Invasive Procedures for Maximum Esthetics;” and a joint presentation by Abdelrouf Suwid PERIO 12 and Manuel Posada PROS 12, “Complex Periodontal-Prosthetic Treatments: A Sequential Team Approach for Optimal Esthetics.”
“This tri-school symposium was an excellent opportunity for our periodontic and prosthodontic residents to learn about dental research that is taking place at NYU and UPenn and to network with their peers at these schools,” said Dean Jeffrey W. Hutter. “I am very pleased that we had the opportunity to host this year’s event and I applaud all of the presenters and organizers of this event for a job well done.”
