To be honest, we never thought that JADS will make it this far. I cannot be more proud of JADS than I am today, and I am sure you are all very proud as well. JADS today is glowing on the national and international levels. Jordan was the ﬁrst to host the mid- year meeting twice, back in 2015 and 2022. I know for a fact how hard it is to organize such a huge event, I would like to congratulate Dima Alam and the organizing committee for the amazing job they did, HATS OFF... I urge you all as dental students to stick together and aim for more achievements as a whole. JADS will provide you with more chances to excel and will make your university life much more interesting, thats for sure. I still remember when my team won the treasure hunt event in 2012. Also, the day I welcomed to Jordan the friends I met during previous IADS events in Italy and Tunisia. Last but not least, I want to wish the upcoming executive board members all the luck, and keep up the good work. Regards, Dr Mohammad Bustani

FIntreormnaatimonemalbAerssofociation of Dental Research (IADR) Tell us about yourself : Why should Dental Students do a research? I think of myself as lively, energetic & passionate. I always seek to grow & become the best version of 1 Research encourages you to ﬁnd the most myself. I love having fun and enjoying good times recent information available. In certain ﬁelds, but I also believe learning is a journey that is long but prosperous. I enjoy philosophy, comedy shows, especially scientiﬁc ones, there’s always new animal documentaries, and I like reading books that help me understand the world or books on information and discoveries being made self-improvement. 2 Staying updated prevents you from falling Life & Career : behind and giving inaccurate info. For After the proclamation of my high school scores in example, a few years ago most of the clinical the kingdom, I knew I wanted to be a dentist, was impassionate about the artistic side of dentistry & restorative work was done using amalgam pleased to be accepted into the University of Jordan. I graduated from the University of Jordan in 2010 as restorations. But a few years later while much a doctor of dental surgery. From Jan -2011 To Sept 2014, I worked as a general dentist in a private research has been devoted to the dental center & during this period time, I started to search for the specialty that suits me best. I development of other restorative materials, attempted to get registered in periodontology and pediatric dentistry specialty programs but wasn’t Composite became more dominant and that's accepted. I continued working in a polyclinic setting until I came across the recruitment ad that the due to research. University of Jordan is funding for scholarships in basic science. I applied & had the position, I worked 3 Since more and more techniques would as a teacher assistant, got involved in research, & change in dentistry over time due to was introduced to the Stem Cells Therapy Centre. Moreover, I was delighted with the paradigm shift of developments, students should not graduate the clinical work into research. without realizing the signiﬁcance of the research. 4 You'll gain an academic credentials that will help create a well-rounded resume for specialty & scholarship applications abroad, especially after the publication of your work. 5 It is also an excellent opportunity to develop relationships with faculty members who work in your area of interest and make connections with other students working on research.
A Certified Carbon Literacy Trainer How to a research? All-Academic of the University of Jordan are researchers with ongoing research projects, & so in continuous need of qualiﬁed students to help with the steps of research, including ﬁnding a topic or creating a paper, etc. the ﬁrst step is to ﬁnd identify a gap in research, a new Secondly, is to approach one of the faculty's academics distinguished topic that was not published before. The with the topic of interest. research idea usually comes from curiosity, a question, an interest, some lack of knowledge and a desire to obtain Create a team, distribute the work, do literature view appropriate answers. together & create a proposal, all these skills would have to be learned during the process of research making. Keep in mind that you cannot do research alone, authors should belong to an institution and or as properly described “afﬁliated with a University”. That's why you should exploit the afﬁliation of the University of Jordan during your academic year. In regards to the funding of the research, the students Publication: What's important here is the topic of the don't have to worry about it because the principal research & all its relevance, why was the research done & investigator is the one responsible for it. how, ethical issues & results. Which articles worth reading? Most of academics uses Google Scholar for scientiﬁc resources. However, generally, any written articles in classiﬁed journals as according to special committee with Impact Factor (IF) is acceptable. The IF is used to measure the importance or rank of a journal to insure that the article is not fabricated & or falsiﬁcated. Also you can simply check the number of citations for that article, which could be an indication to the strength of the article, in most cases the bigger number the better. Other way to check the safety of the article is to google the article you wanted to read & search if it is a predatory journals, check impact factor or classiﬁcation. PubMed (NCBI) is also one of the best sources for medical information & journals. A drawback you might face is not ﬁnding open access articles in your topic area, which means you need to pay to gain an open access.
A JOURNEY JINU H ONE RANDOM QUESTION 2021 D E C ' 1 9 12 SOCIAL QUESTIONS ASKED! A group of the editorial team went through a journey at Jordan University hospital. Throughout the journey, a social question was asked to the people of the hospital to interview their daily glimpses alongside their portraits to create a visual analogue of the hospital community. The first academic teaching hospital in the Hashemite kingdom of Jordan. Being a leader, JUH is also the first hospital in the Arab region, the second in the Middle East, and the eighteenth worldwide to receive the accreditation of the Joint Commission International (JCI).

You don't communicate with these patients by spoken words, you just need to reach them, and understand the effect of the environment that surrounds them. Any new environment would change their behaviour, maybe making them more anxious and violent than they are, but you are the one that can modify this environment, making it more comfortable and familiar. You have to know that these patients express their pain in a different way, they usually tend to stop eating or change their behaviour or weep and mourn. Last year, the school of dentistry has established a new postgraduate program in oral medicine, and special care dentistry for the first time in Jordan. The requirement includes finishing an internship year and the MFD exam. In my perspective, what you really need is to be passionate about dealing with special needs to overcome any difficulties. I once had a letter received from one of my patient's parents who was diagnosed with Prader Willi Syndrome, praising me for the effective treatment done for the patient. This proves the necessity of dental treatment and mastering the management for these patients.
RADIOLOGY As one of the greatest academic achiever, have DEPARTMENT you ever had participated an any of the extracurriculum activities? DMR. AEBEEERTAL-HADIDI During my study at The School of Dentistry,I was a part of a Head of the department small class of 60 great people. There were lots of opportunities for bonding with others and exploring ones self. I was ACROSS THE HALLWAY enthusiastic & active in more than one aspect of the extracurricular activities including our class committee that MYOSSEOREHATIDER represents & act on behalf of other students to influence an outcome and organize social events such as sports, camping, & 4th year Dental Student supporting charity. Being immersed in these activities, I got the opportunity to learn the value of teamwork, holding responsibilities, & elaborate the sense of culture & community. On a personal level, I tried to learn to play the violin and participate in sports to reduce stress, especially during my last Academic years. Being always involved gives a quality of time, and reflect more positively on your academic achievements, not the opposite. I do believe that you should give priority to your studying schedule, but also our days are long enough to exploit the time more effectively instead of doing nothing. Meeting new people, and being social give a positive impact and energy to you and others, and it increases your sense of engagement to your school and friends. What makes you look stressed? Exams are coming up, I'm worried about how well I will do in the exam. Searching for patients, thinking about my clinics, made me feel unprepared & I haven’t had enough time to study. But I feel much better right now, because i shared my problems with you.

Qualities that in turn make them learn more and be more competent. JORDAN UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL ESTABLISHED IN Research is another essential part of academia. It allows the collaboration with colleagues and institutions from all 1973 over the world, and creates a network of connections with prominent international scholars and Universities. It also pushes you to seek and apply the latest knowledge in your areas of interest. And finally, summer holidays (while on paid leave) are so precious.
MEET Although dentistry is a high demanding specialty, the structure of the dental profession itself provides good DR. YARA OWAIS opportunities for both women and men to exercise a high degree of independence and flexibility. There are many Assistant Professor unique challenges that only female dentists face in achieving professional excellence due to cultural norms and As a successful woman in the dental field, is gender barriers which have a great impact on women's there a gender equity in the dental practice? careers. & are males considered more productive? In JUH, both male & female dentists & academics work DENTAL INTERN equally hard to accomplish their tasks. However, since dentistry is an incentive profession, male dentists are MEET considered more productive. They have fewer cultural burdens in our society which give them the ability to work DR.KHALED AL-TAMIMI longer. Intern Year Since academic accomplishments & dental career productivity require being flexible & focused on developing your experience, exploiting your potential before engaging in establishing a family could be better. It is easier to develop & lead this profession in early adulthood. why did you decide to do your intern year at JUH? One of the most significant advantages of doing your intern year in Ju is the support you get when establishing research. I did see a lot of rare syndromes & diseases that you don't usually see in other places. The stress-free environment of the intern year at Ju improved my clinical practice outcomes & witnessing surgeries of different fields of dentistry with specialized doctors broadened my knowledge & comprehension.
PERIODONTOLOGY Being interested in biology, cell functioning, and its DEPARTMENT interface with medicine, I knew I wanted to become a doctor with a medical degree during elementary school. MDR. EAHEMATD HAMDAN Eventually & due to life circumstances, I ended up getting my Academic degree in Dentistry. Vice Dean for Hospital & Quality Assurance Affairs Thinking of a career shift, it was not easy to give up on all Do you support the idea of career shift? the success, efforts, accomplishments, & social environment gained throughout my career. I do support MEET the idea of a career shift only if you don't find yourself in the zone, and you think your abilities could be used in a DR. NAJLA KASABREH totally different way.

During my Academic Journey in France, a friend of mine, who graduated as an engineer, insisted on pursuing his dream and succeeded to become a pulmonologist. I do believe in the quote of \" Love what you do, until you can do what you love\", but because life is not only about work & career, we should think of life more deeply, and recognise the consequences of a career shift. When I graduated and completed my internship year, I went through a difficult phase where I felt lost. My mind scattered on where I should be, & what specialty suits me, as I did not accept being a DDS & not evolving my experiences. Meanwhile, I have started my master degree program in The satisfaction of helping patients maintain their dentition, & affecting positive behaviour change can not prosthodontics at JUH, then I got a scholarship from the be overstated. So I deviated from my previous plan to a much better one.

While teaching, I interests. recognized that I love to inspire, educate, & live with a deep sense of purpose. Since then, I was hooked on periodontics & found myself passionate about the speciality.
PROSTHODONTIC Regarding the current marketing strategies in DEPARTMENT dentistry to boost an income, MEET how do you think the best way to utilize Social Media for these purposes? DR. MUTASEM ABU AWWAD why you don't regularly share your cases? Associate Professor & Head of Prosthodontic Department In considering the marketing strategies in dentistry, I think the best way to compose a case & share it on social media is by arranging the events of the procedure in chronological order, demonstrating certain decisions during a particular treatment, & elucidating the arguments of your clinical decision-making process. Since the \"before and after\" cases are sometimes disguised, try to create an imaginary journey where your viewers can follow every development of the case. All dental majors can fetch a good income to the dentist if the treatment was done by ethical means, any unethical employment of the established treatment would only initially lift your income, but suddenly drop with the time it's perceived. As an academic & clinician, I'm into teaching, educating, and valuing the significance of the clinical practice. Due to the confined time I have working between my clinics attending my patients & supervising students, I do prefer sharing cases that are interesting & beneficial to viewers, doing my best to exhibit professionalism in representing the cases, excluding any restricted marketing purposes. MEET HANEEN & RAHAF 5TH year Dental Students Tell me a benefit of discussing your clinical cases together : By studying and discussing with each other, we can We also boost our overall level of enjoyment and reinforce our learning habits and understanding.

MBTI stands for Myers-Briggs Type Indicator – a method of personality identification through a series of multiple-choice questions of 16 personality groups.

DR JOSEPH You might think that when you graduate from your KAN speciality training, you'll suddenly become this great clinician. It never happens! For example, for Prosthodontist myself, the first 10 years of practice after I finished my speciality training, I’m still learning & I’m just Biography : beginning.

Throughout the Interview, It certainly doesn’t work like that. So my advice is to stay true to yourself, stay humble & be As one of the best researchers and clinicians in passionate about what you do. the whole world, what advice would you give to young clinicians who are just going into private Greetings from the united states. practice out of school? I wish you are all well I was a young clinician at one time in my career and I think the most important thing is that if you want to excel then you must stay true to what you do. Do not cut corners and do not compromise. Because to really understand implant dentistry or periodontics, the foundation is really the key. A lot of times I see a lot of young clinicians worship all these fancy techniques or fancy instruments that they think would make them better. But the reality is & the key in my opinion is to develop the foundation of both implant dentistry and periodontics. So my main point is, to be honest, be passionate in what you do, do not compromise and do not cut corners. And a lot of times, to develop & to be a good clinician is when you go step by step from the foundation. &From the recipient of the Best Research Award in 1997 the 2003 Judson Hinckey Award from the Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry.
LPoRmOaFLEinSdaSUOnRiveArsTity What's so special about Immediate Implant to Do you believe in the link between evidence based invest your time and effort into it? dentistry and practicing in a private practice setting? So that’s a great question. To be honest as a young When we talk about evidence-based that means we are clinician, I never thought about getting famous or being looking at the literature & what has been published out known. I research because I am curious. And also when I there. Now, the problem is with a lot of the publications. do research I do not expect the results to be great from Because a lot of researchers when they start a research, whatever it is that I’m doing. Once again, I do research they have the endpoint in mind already,they kind of know simply because I want to know whether things work or the results already. not, so the key thing is this. How did I stumble upon immediate implant placement? By reading the literature more, i recognized that i do not trust 70% of literature. Because how good a publication is, To be honest, at that time when I first started researching depends on how well the researcher did the research. about immediate implants there were lots of people who And how honest that research is. Unfortunately, a lot of were against immediate implants. A lot of people laughed research is driven by company or self-motivation. So what at me and said what you are doing is out of control. That that means is that evidence-based in general is good. The was because it was out of the traditional way of doing student needs to learn but a lot of times the connection implant dentistry. But once again, I did it because I was between clinical reality is not there. And sometimes curious. I just wanted to know; does it work? What can I people make a big deal about a few millimetres in gain learn from it?And one thing leads to another. whereas in a clinical setting it means nothing. So this is what I do to develop. When I started noticing results, the results were positive. So therefore I continued working on it. I always say that As a graduated student with lack of clinical experience, luckily I stumbled into a topic that, 15 years later, you must read the literature & get a foundation. Then from nowadays, everybody is excited about doing it. Even that, you need to experiment a little bit to see what you are people who are really against it started embracing it. capable of doing, whether there is a link or not and then from that point, you need to experiment it clinically to When we look back people would say oh Dr Kan your define what you are capable of achieving. My point is that vision is so strong, honestly, in retrospect, you can always what I can achieve clinically doesn’t mean that you can say you did really great. But looking forward nobody achieve it clinically. What works in my head may not work knows the future. Therefore, as young clinicians like you in your head. Therefore, as a clinician, you must listen and guys when you do research just try your best to do learn from all the clinicians as much as you can and then whatever because nobody knows whether you will experiment and develop in your path. stumble into anything great. So I will say I got really lucky to make it into something special The key to YOUR success is not to follow MY path. You must follow your path, but at the same time, learn from my experience and develop your path.

Federal Loan : Do we have to Get US state DDS to work & practice? its a government loan but you should be eligible for it, as for US citizens or green card holders.

If your goal was to stay in the US, then you either Get the 2 years DDS program for 6 months grace period where you don't have to worry work & practice or you can apply directly for a speciality training, about the payment after graduation. but that would limit your practice depending on which US state you're staying in. If you are not planning to stay in the US, then Fixed interest rate you have to think if the US DDS is worth doing, & is it going to make a big difference for you financially in your home country, or Income-based repayment plan you'll be just spending a lot of money.

This is not an option in the Jordanian Royal Medical Services.

PREPARE FOR YOUR VIVA where many students think that viva is a stressful nightmare, it is a better system where your grades for a subject can rest on both an oral & written- based examination rather than a single form exam. I do believe that a balance of verbal and written assessment could be highly beneficial to all of you, where you get the opportunity to reveal your knowledge & show off your capacity to debate and form arguments by throwing in detail from your experience throughout your clinical years, wider reading or documentaries. It is important to realize that we aim to help you visualize your future dental career by asking you about clinical cases that you may pass by soon after graduation & assessing how you would deal with such situations. We do not aim to put you in a stressful position, where you may think we are being judgmental, & so don't take it personally. Dr. Handle your Nervouseness KHADIJEH ZUBI Take the advice from Remember to breathe, you are allowed to set aside a couple of minutes to relieve your stress during viva, get a good night sleep & have a positive the Judgement Committee ! mental attitude . If by any chance you feel uncomfortable due to high level of stress, please say so, your health matters more to us. Ask for a 5 minutes break or water, and if it will help you calm down bring a snack & ask us to take a bite or two to get some sugar in your blood. Study Smart not Hard Take into consideration that the timer specified for your Viva exam is mainly present to organize & have a sense of fairness for each student to demonstrate his knowledge, & not to heighten tension purposely Try to focus on the clinical aspect of every theoretical chapter, Viva is a PMosinitdive clinical examination that relies on the integration between theory & practice together. For example, if your case was about a patient who is a PLoisfieti!ve smoker, then you should know how to examine, take a history, & how this factor could affect your diagnosis & management or long term prognosis, but you don't have to get deep into the detail of the smoking process aggravating periodontitis histologically, this is not what we examine in Viva, unless the student showed high level of knowledge then we might level it up from there.
PREPARE FOR YOUR VIVA Be Confident In Conclusion & follow the tips ! We only intend to assess our future dentists' capabilities & knowledge, we do not intend to put you in a situation to Take it simple embarrass or judge you personally, just as we will be your colleagues in the specialty & your friends in the profession. Integrate each question as simple as it is, if the examiner asked you to describe what you see in the x-ray image, don't hurry into your diagnosis. GOOD LUCK It's a protocol where we initially start with basic questions first & then increase the difficulty & specificity of the questions gradually. If you don't know the answer then be honest, you could also simply reply that you would refer your patient or consult a specialist if you have no idea how you could manage a case, but don't you ever suggest a treatment for example without any knowledge-based answer. At least you can just explain what you know like describing the disease or give some basic information that you know about this disease then you can say however, i'd rather get a consult from a specialist about it because i don't know/can't remember how to treat it for example. The student is the one that determines the general atmosphere during Viva, so try to be confident, take a deep breath,& take it simple. Dress Code There will be some sort of consideration of your general appearance in the scoring system. Make sure to dress formally & appropriately to show that you care, it doesn't really matter whatever you wear since it is within the framework of a formal suit. Females can wear simple accessories or makeup, or even stay within their religious dress code. It's all about being neat, decent, & formal
