An interview with Dr. Shibani Sahni

TUSDM Global Academy, started by Dr. Shibani Sahni, has provided a unique opportunity to qualified dentists across the world, and is helping further improve the knowledge, skills and access to advice and materials in placing implants, cranio-facial pain, TMJ, and other facets of dentistry with confidence. The workshops have a didactic and hands-on component allowing participants to gain and apply skills as they learn. This venture grew out of a desire she has to put good training into practice to ensure leading developments in dental medicine got out of teaching institutions into the wider dental community.

Australian students at Tufts University’s recent Craniofacial Pain and Dental Sleep Medicine workshops in Sydney and Melbourne voted with their feet and seized the opportunity to learn from some of the best without having to leave the country.

More dentists are expected to embark on the in-depth hybrid implant mini residency course which will offer the advantage of world-class dental teaching facilities and expert facilitators, providing comprehensive skills development to fast track their learning.

Dr. Sahni said Tufts had built strong relationships with leading practitioners around the world, including Tufts University alumni from Australia who had completed earlier courses at the university.

“These dentists have used the knowledge and skills gained to advance their careers and become leaders in their field as a result and are now willing advocates and ambassadors for training in new and improved techniques for a range of skillsets.”

This includes implant courses and workshops and further studies into Craniofacial Pain and Dental Sleep Medicine among other courses on offer through the university.

“Our ambassadors are all for changing patient care and extending dental education based on evidence-based research and practical application of the techniques learned,” Dr Sahni said.

“Tufts is not just about ‘teaching’, but about ‘doing,’ and this is evidenced in the ability of our graduates to go away and apply their newly acquired skills in their own practices and in their own countries.

“The Tufts University School of Dental Medicine is now spreading globally and is a recognized leader in dental education across the globe. I am very pleased to be able to bring this opportunity to Australian dental practitioners.”

She said Tufts University will be continuing to grow its courses and raise awareness of the opportunities available throughout Europe, Middle East, Asia Pacific, and Africa.

“The response to these courses from Australian dentists has been very encouraging, and we welcome everyone to be part of the Tufts family and hope to see them at our next courses.”
