On Friday, April 7th, the Temple University Kornberg School of Dentistry hosted Building Bridges to Peace thru Oral Health: The DVI Model, an important symposium on the widespread perils of pediatric oral disease. A group of dentists and other experts in this field presented new concepts in the recognition and treatment of dental caries; the status of efforts to address this critical problem in the United States and around the world; and current thinking on how to support, encourage and design preventive and treatment programs and solutions.
We thank Dr. Joe Greenberg, Lecture Co-chair and Speaker, and Dr. Marc Rothman, Lecture Co-chair and Q&A Moderator, for dedicating their time to this special project in support of the DVI Trudi Birger Dental Clinic. Our sincere appreciation also goes to the incredible speakers, Dr. Robert Weyant, Dean Amid Ismail, Dr. Roy Petel, Dr. Scott Dubowsky, Ms. Lisa Schildhorn, Mr. Steve Kess and Dr. Allen Finkelstein, who shared their expertise and insights into this very important topic.
Dentists, dental hygienists, dental students and representatives of our corporate sponsors came to learn and share and support the work of DVI, a world-renowned model and a leader in the design and implementation of dental care and oral health education for the underserved. DVI has been providing care to Jerusalem’s children and building bridges to peace for over 37 years.
