Deans of Adelaide Dental School

Yesterday KOM’s Executive Director, Martin Kelly and Regional Marketing Manager, Matt Price met with the Deans of Adelaide Dental School. 

Seen here is Professor Richard Logan, Assistant Dean (L) and Professor Johann de Vries, Dean (R).



Yesterday’s meeting in Toronto was to build stronger relations with KOM and Adelaide Dental School and to assist Canadian students with learning more about Adelaide Dental School.  Interviews for KOM Canadian dental students applicants took place all this week in Toronto.  As well, Adelaide Dental School hosted a free webinar to discuss the Dentistry program at University of Adelaide

KOM was interested to learn that Prof de Vries was the Professor and Dean of the Faculty of Dentistry at the University of Manitoba for almost 10 years.  While starting his studies in south Africa, he qualified as a dentist in 1974 from the University of Pretoria, South Africa and spending some time in a private general practice, Prof De Vries joined full time academics.  Prof De Vries was Head of Operative Dentistry at The Medical University of Southern Africa for 10 years and Dean for seven and a half years.  He continued his efforts to Canada at Univerity of Manitoba and now in Adelaide, Australia. 

Prof de Vries pointed out his support and efforts in the the reciprocal agreement with the Australian Dental Council and the Commission on Dental Accreditation of Canada.  This allows accredited graduates of either body to practice dentistry in Australia or Canada. 
Here is more information Prof de Vries accomplishments.
