With a passion for public health dentistry, Dr. Abbas Jessani aims to improve the oral health of underserved populations.
In his latest research, Jessani, Assistant Professor, Restorative Dentistry and Director for Oral Health Outreach and Community Engaged Learning, focused on persons living with HIV in Saskatchewan, seeking to better understand factors that impact their access to oral health care.
“People living with HIV are a neglected and underserved group in Canada and internationally, especially in addressing their basic unmet oral health needs,” Jessani said.
