GILLINGHAM, UK: Five graduates from King’s College London Dental Institute have been awarded bursaries by Henry Schein UK this year. The dental distributor recognised students Joshua Green and Takawira Mairosi, among others, for their leadership in foreign educational projects and the implementation of a structured holistic patient assessment and in-house referral scheme for local practices in London.

For her dissertation Survival and Modality of Failure of Porcelain Veneers from Feldspathic Laminate Veneers to the Latest Generations of Porcelain Materials, final-year student Mariacristina Ruberto from Hove received the Henry Schein Award for Excellence. The company also committed to providing two more disadvantaged students with financial support.

All five students are or have been enrolled in postgraduate MSc programmes at the institute.

This is the third year running that these awards have been given to dental students from King’s College London. Through them, Henry Schein aims to underline its commitment to investing in the future of dental education. To be considered, recipients have to submit a personal statement explaining how the programme in which they are enrolled has helped them provide leadership in their field, among other things.

Associate Dean for Education Prof. Mark Woolford welcomed the continued support, which he said adds to the recognition of the institute’s distance learning programmes, which cover a wide range of fields, including aesthetic dentistry and maxillofacial prosthetic rehabilitation.

“They require a great deal of commitment from the students and this effort is so frequently ignored in other arenas,” he said in a statement.
