Oral Health Research Event 2019

On January 15th, 2019, McGill Dentistry’s Oral Health Research Event was held in New Residence Hall. DMD IV (fourth-year) students shared with our community the outcome of their four-year research training, presenting their research findings in a PowerPoint presentation. The students’ research projects included observational and experimental study designs, systematic review methodologies, and qualitative studies. Projects were focused on clinical and educational issues directly relevant to our undergraduate dental curriculum. This event was funded by the Class of 1958 (25th Anniversary donations) and the Canada Dentistry Fund. The Faculty of Dentistry would like to thank everyone for their keen participation and congratulate the winners of this year’s OHR Event.
