Dr. Neamat Hassan Abubakr Hassan joined UNLV School of Dental Medicine during 2017 and is an active contributor to educational, academic, clinical and research activities, with evidence of broad and high impact publications within the dental literature.

Her approach to dental education has been to work her way up the hierarchy, learning and integrating information at each stage. She has made contacts within dental education, private practice, and dental research globally, which lead her to the commitment of academic excellence.

Dr. Hassan has worked full time in dental education since 1995. She began at the University of Khartoum in Sudan where she quickly earned promotions to chair, and professor of the department. She also earned the distinction as the first female full professor of dentistry in Sudan.

Dr. Hassan supervised a significant number of master’s and Ph.D. students, as well as undergraduate and postgraduate activities that foster the development of dental education, research and clinical practice.

Dr. Hassan’s research is in dental materials, oral health research, and clinical research. Her novel research was one of the first to highlight the impact of dietary components on the performance of dental materials within the oral cavity.

Dr. Hassan earned her Bachelor of Dental Medicine and Surgery from Mansoura University, Egypt during 1988; her diploma of surgical sub-specialty, in Vienna, Austria during 1993; her master’s in conservative dentistry from Dundee, Scotland during 1995; and her Ph.D. from Niigata University, Japan, during 2001.
