Dr. Foda will be our speaker on December 10th. He attended the University of British Columbia, where he obtained his dental degree in 2012. It was during his dental school education when he decided to pursue subspecialty training in the field of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. His desire to further his education led him to New York City, where he spent 4 years developing his skills at the Montefiore Medical Center/Albert Einstein College of Medicine. He is currently working in private practice on the North Shore at Harbourside Oral and Facial Surgical Centre. Dr. Foda will share his extensive knowledge with "Third Molar Surgery- Successes and How to Avoid Complications". Promises to be an eye-opening session and an invaluable night of learning.

I’m interested in growing within my field of dentistry.
