Another pleasant update from Dentice!!!
In August 2019, Dentice reached Mandalay, Myanmar and reached out to over 300 local kids and villagers there. Interactions with local people and cultural experience are also indispensable parts of our trip. We are sure the 8-day service trip was a fruitful and memorable one to all participants and volunteers.
Under the valuable guidance from Dr. Mike Leung and Dr. Mei Chong and the supervision of Dr. Karen Cheung, members of Dentice provided oral health education, preventive and restorative treatments as well as dental extractions.
All our 16 volunteers participated would like to extend our greatest gratitude towards Hong Kong Alliance Mission for their enormous support in arranging all the itineraries for our group. We would also like to show our appreciation to Young Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon Group of Hong Kong, Professor Lo from Faculty of Dentistry, HKU and our generous sponsors OralB, Coalgate and GSK. The success of this trip hinges on all your supports and resources. Thank you.

1830-1900 YOMS 5th AGM
1900-2030 Scientific Lecture by Dr. Keith Leung
Topic: Oral and Maxillofacial Pathologies you have to know
* CME accreditation in application
AGM Lecture summary
General dentists are frequently the first to encounter oral/maxillofacial pathologies during regular dental check-ups. As a primary screener, it is important to identify pathologies from normal variations and have knowledge of their management in order to provide the proper treatment or allow a timely referral. However, it can be challenging sometimes. This short lecture aims at giving an overview of the most common and significant oral/maxillofacial pathologies, especially those unique to the oral cavity.
