- Personal statement: “After 20 years as a general dentist with an interest in computers, this was an excellent program for aiding me in making the transition into academia. This is an outstanding program for exposing healthcare professionals, academicians, and researchers in how technology is changing and will be used in healthcare for the future. Moreover, it was an opportunity for me to interact with individuals from other ethnic and professional groups. We all gained new knowledge not only in informatics but also personal experiences in cultural awareness, thus developing our own team in ‘dental informatics.’
