Appolonia World for Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Gulf Medical University in the field of training and scientific research to develop the efficiency and skills of students and graduates of the College of Dentistry.

The new agreement will allow students to train at one of the largest centres specialised in orthodontics and pediatric dentistry in the Middle East.

Students will benefit from the expertise of medical cadres and scientific programmes and experience the practical application of the innovative techniques and modern devices used in the Appolonia World clinics.

On the occasion, Dr Yaser Haj Hamed, Chairman and Managing Director of Appolonia World Group, focused on the importance of scientific research, cooperation, and community partnership between public and private sector institutions in line with the aspirations of the wise leadership and Abu Dhabi Vision 2030.

He said “We must extend our deepest thanks to the Department of Health in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi for its encouragement and interest in scientific research, innovation, and continuous development. Scientific research will help develop innovative and sustainable solutions to many challenges related to children’s oral health in the United Arab Emirates.”

Professor Hossam Hamdy, Chancellor of Gulf Medical University, pointed out that Gulf University is one of the largest specialised universities in the Middle East, with six colleges and 26 accredited programmes.

“Our students and graduates will have the opportunity to train in a structured environment in all branches of Appolonia Dentistry for Children. In addition, the collaboration comes as part of the efforts to go further in scientific research, especially that related to pediatric dentistry, which will have a meaningful impact on patients, students, and the university.”

Commenting on the collaboration, Professor Hesham Marei Dean of the College of Dentistry at Gulf Medical University, said: “The Gulf University has excellent scientific capabilities and expertise, especially regarding scientific research, and we will share those experiences with Appolonia World to achieve our goals. Also, we will give them access to an electronic library database, which will be an excellent resource for Appolonia.”
