Dr. Abbas Jessani is a tenure-track assistant professor and the coordinator for community dental outreach at Schulich Dentistry, University of Western Ontario. Dr. Jessani has completed his graduate training with a focus on Public Health Dentistry at the UBC Faculty of Dentistry, where he earned his MSc and PhD. During this endeavor, Dr. Jessani explored the unmet oral health needs of people living with HIV in BC.
