On the morning of June 19, the opening ceremony of the program was held. Professor Cheng Bin, Dean of Guanghua School of Stomatology, presented certificates of gratitude to the four professors.

After the ceremony, the four professors gave lectures to nearly 90 fourth grade undergraduate students in two days. The contents included Cariology and Endodontics, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Prosthodontics and Orthodontics. Each professor taught 4 class hours a day, with 32 class hours in total.

On June 21-22, the four professors gave open academic lectures to nearly 100 internships, residents and faculty members. The lecture topics were “Improving Endodontic skills acquisition in novice dental students” by Associate Professor Raymond Scott, “Your Oral Surgery case did not go so well?–Fix it & prevent it from happening again” by Professor Anders Nattestad, “Critical thinking and inter-disciplinary integration in prosthodontics” by Associate Professor Eugene LaBarre, and “Updates on trends and technologies in orthodontics” by Adjunct Assistant Professor Adrian Vogt.

In addition to theoretical teaching and open lectures, they also visited clinics of Guanghua School of Stomatology, and carried out clinical demonstration, consultation, as well as case discussion.

Through this program, the clinical English and critical thinking of the students were improved. Teachers of the two schools also exchanged their views on dental curriculum, dental education skills and technology.
