Meet the Dentists!

Hey UTPDS-ers!

We have a special event planned out for you guys – Meet the Dentists! On Wednesday, March 14th at 6:30 pm in UC 140 we have three dentists with very diverse backgrounds who are excited to tell everyone about their lives and their pathways to making a remarkable impact on the field of dentistry.

Dr. Joel Rosenbloom is not only a demonstrator at the University of Toronto Faculty of Dentistry for many different programs and courses but also works at the Center for Addiction and Mental Health several days a week. He has also done international missionary work.

Dr. Hagen Klieb is an oral pathologist; he has a very busy clinical practice in Toronto and is cross-appointed to the Department of Anatomic Pathology where he reads biopsy specimens as a medical pathologist. He is also an educator, involved with teaching residents at Sunnybrook Hospital and is pursuing post-graduate studies in clinical teaching and education in the Faculty of Medicine.

Dr. Carlos Quinonez is a first-year professor at the University of Toronto Faculty of Dentistry. He is one of Canada’s most renowned researchers in public and community dentistry and still practices one day a week.

Following the speakers, there will be a question and answer period. Pizza and refreshments will be provided. We anticipate the event will run approximately one and a half hours in length.

Please RSVP with the subject line “YES MEET THE DENTISTS” to let us know that you will be attending.
