Presentation: Wenlian Zhou and Rick Thiriot

Dr. Wenlian Zhou and Dr. Rick Thiriot (Dental Medicine) met with faculty and students at Nankai University’s School of Medicine and Dentistry in Tianjin, China, to discuss comprehensive dental care and treatment planning. During the two-week visit, the professors presented five to six hours of classroom education each day, which included dental cases from the UNLV school’s patient population. The schools established a collaborative relationship six years ago. Nankai University invites UNLV faculty to teach, and UNLV School of Dental Medicine hosts Nankai students to participate in lectures and observe the delivery of dental care. This is the fourth time UNLV faculty have visited the dental school in China. The exchange of information furthers Nankai University’s goal of obtaining international accreditation.
