Wood Award for Excellence in Dental Education, the 2005 Educator Award from the AAP and the 2009 Howard Katz Award for Excellence in Teaching.

I belong to many professional organizations including the Canadian and American Academies of Periodontology.

I am involved in several clinical research projects involving implant surgery, photodynamic therapy and the use of lasers in periodontology which keep me stimulated and up to date.

Through the fondations Kindness in Action and Change for Children, I have been able to give something back to the world! I have been organizing and participating in dental humanitarian missions for over 12 years and each trip has brought its share of emotions and inspiration. Our team has now grown and each year our group gets larger including dental students, hygienists and much needed non-dental volunteers. The quantity of patients we have treated for free over the years is staggering, several thousands now!

I also enjoy volunteering on humanitarian journeys to serve children and adults in need.
