Current Member in the Spotlight:     MEET Dr. Effrat Habsha


Introducing Dr. Effrat (Effie) Habsha DDS, MSc

1. What about prosthodontic dentistry originally drew you in and what excites you about the field today?
"I was introduced to Prosthodontics early in my undergrad years and was struck by the impact of Prosthodontics on patients? quality of life. I met Professor Branemark when I worked as a summer student in the Department of Prosthodontics and conducted research on the early patient population treated with dental implants by Branemark at the University of Toronto. I learned firsthand from these patients the impact the care they received had on their quality of life and quickly realized how rewarding our profession is. The new technologies that are continuously emerging in dentistry today excite me. Adopting digital technology in all aspects of care, from treatment planning, implant surgery and prosthodontics is extremely gratifying and exciting."

2. Why did you become a member of the APS?
"I was introduced to the APS several years ago by Izchak Barzilay. I really enjoy the meetings as there is often an international flavor to them, showcasing talented clinicians from Europe, South America and beyond. Aside from the academic aspect of the meetings, I also greatly enjoy the camaraderie amongst the membership. There is a large contingent of the Eastman Alumni that attend the annual APS meeting and it is always wonderful meeting with friends and colleagues from all over the world."    READ MORE
