ODC Student Represents Sultanate at GDSA

Lakshmi Harish, first year student at Oman Dental College (ODC), was chosen to be the only representative from Oman at the Gulf Dental Students and Young Dentists Association.

Lakshmi has represented Oman and Oman Dental College at several conferences in the recent past, including at the International Students Dental Conference in Sharjah (ISDC), says a press release.

At ISDC, Lakshmi was asked to create a presentation on ‘Oral Manifestations of Life Threatening Diseases’, an important topic as most ailments can be detected first by dentists. Dr Rahul Arora, dean of ODC, said: “Lakshmi is an excellent example of ODC’s aspirations for its students in their professional journey. We have an extremely talented student body, and excellence is achievable for all of them.”

Dr Mohamed Al Ismaily, chairman of Oman Dental College, said: “I am proud to note that ODC students are achieving impressive feats at such an early stage of their academia.
