Head of McGill’s Periodontal Department Recipient of Humanitarian Award from Mexican Periodontal Association (AMP)

Dr. Veronique Benhamou, Head of the Periodontal Department of McGill University’s Dental School, was honoured last week at the 23rd International Periodontal Congress of the Association of Mexican Periodontists (AMP) held in beautiful Morelia, Mexico. AMP President Dr. Miguel de la Isla and Plenary Chair, Dr. Raoul Caffesse, of Argentina, presented Dr. Benhamou with the AMP Humanitarian Award for her work earlier this year in Espita Mexico.

Leading a small team of students, teachers and alumni of McGill University, Dr. Benhamou was responsible for providing dental care to over 700 Mayan patients in the Yucatan, an area of Mexico with limited opportunities for dental care. This mission to Espita, Mexico is one of over a dozen such missions led by Dr. Veronique Benhamou to underprivileged regions and Developing Nations. Dr. Benhamou and her team plan to return to Espita in January 2014 for another mission of dental care. Periowave Dental Technologies wishes to congratulate Dr. Benhamou for her well-deserved recognition at the AMP.
