Sammi Hofstra, Texas A&M University, member of the IASD Students Group, is spending four months in Germany to learn about the structures, organization and concepts of DGzPRsport. She has gained insights into a prevention program at SC Freiburg and is learning the concepts of modern, evidence-based sports dentistry.
As part of the DGzPRsport board meeting, she has also been able to network with the members of the IASD Students Group from Freiburg.
“Such contacts will form the backbone of the International Association of Sports Dentistry in the future. We’re excited to see the shared activities that will come under the IASD umbrella in the future. It is also very important that we open up a field that prompts and maintains the interest and fun in dentistry, alongside what can often be very stressful student training,” says Dr. Marko Knauf, President of the IASD.
