Community Health Project

The Community Health Projects have been submitted by all final year students of the Faculty of Dentistry since 1984. Under the guidance of their instructors, the students have worked in groups to investigate and explore different oral health issues in the Hong Kong community. Some of the projects were actually presented in international conferences such as Asian-Pacific Dental Congress and International Association for Dental Research South-east Asian Division Meeting and furthermore, one of the projects won the first Asia Pacific Dental Student Research Competition in 1994.
