Her research was on Pulp Capping Agents.
Her e-poster was electronically displayed on a high-definition monitor at the conference. “It eliminates the need of printing and carrying the poster,” Hussain explained.
Hussain submitted her research abstract to the competition, which was open to students, residents, and recent graduates of U.S. and Canadian dental schools.
“My poster was among only 24 selected,” Hussain said. “It was an honor and a proud moment to represent the UIC College of Dentistry at the AGD Annual Meeting.”
Her research was an evidence-based literature review on the types of pulp capping agents used for direct and indirect pulp capping procedures. It critically appraised the clinical application and success of the different pulp capping agents, including agents created in recent years.
Hussain noted that her review “incorporated the highest level of clinical research done in the ten years from 2004 to 2014,” she said.
“The success of a pulp capping procedure is multi-factorial,”
Her mentors are Dr. Ana Bedran-Russo, Associate Professor, and Dr. Adriana Semprum-Clavier, Clinical Associate Professor, Restorative Dentistry.
“I would like to thank Dean Clark Stanford, my mentors, and the research faculty for their support and encouragement,”
Hussain also represented UIC at the Academy for Sports Dentistry Annual Symposium in Chicago in June, where she presented a poster on Concussion Protection with Mouthguards. Her mentor was Dr. Larry Salzmann, Clinical Professor and Predoctoral Program Clinic Director, Pediatric Dentistry.
Hussain hopes to perform postgraduate work in clinical dentistry. “I aspire to make a meaningful impact on the clinical application of research in dentistry and health science,” she concluded.
