IMU Dentistry Student Wins Award at Advanced Asian Dental Summit (AADS) 2022

14 Feb 2023

It was with great honour I represented the School of Dentistry, International Medical University, Malaysia to present my paper on clinical audit at the Advanced Asian Dental Summit (AADS) 2022, which was held at Philippine International Convention Centre, Pasay City, Manila, Philippines on 12 – 13 December 2022.

At the conference, I was given a platform to present my research on the clinical audit “Effect of Quality of Record Keeping on the Technical Quality of Root Canal Filling Performed by Dental Undergraduates”, which culminated in me winning the prestigious award of “Best Paper/Research under Student Research Category”.

I would like to express gratitude to my supervisor, A/Prof Dr Abhishek Parolia for his constant guidance and support throughout the process of conducting my clinical audit. His constructive feedback and words of encouragement helped me greatly when I was preparing for my oral and poster presentation. I would also like to reserve special thanks to my research team as this was definitely not a one-man’s effort but rather the entire team’s. This achievement would not be possible at all without each and every single member of the team.

Besides, I was also fortunate to be given the opportunity to participate in the amazing hands-on workshop by A/Prof Dr Abhishek Parolia on “Management of Complicated Curved Canals”. By acquiring the knowledge of the benefits of magnification and illumination in endodontics, preparation of canals using rotary instruments, ultrasonics and irrigation devices from the workshop, I became confident in applying this fundamental knowledge of endodontics in clinical practice and managing endodontic cases with higher confidence and predictability.


This conference also sees world-leading dental health practitioners, clinicians and educators from Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, India and the United Kingdom presenting cutting-edge and practical clinical methods based upon widely accepted evidence. It was truly an eye-opening experience for me, to attend the lectures and be inspired and influenced by the leading dental experts and learn how to buoy up my clinical skills to the next level with enhanced patient care.
