In line with the BBS’ initiative ‘What you need to know about my OI’ BBS staff at Dundee HQ were delighted to welcome fourteen 4th year dental students from the Dundee Dental School to their offices to meet with members Ingrid Brodie, Jamie Abbot and Trustee Yvonne Grant.
The students, as part of the Year 4 undergraduate curriculum cover a unit which involves community engagement where they meet with different groups to better understand different social, general and oral health needs of individuals. We were delighted to be able to share specific aspects of OI with the group.
The dental students visited for the afternoon on the 13th March, and were split into 3 groups where they had the opportunity to interact with staff and members to understand the needs of the OI Community.
Following on from these discussions and as part of their assessment, the students will develop their ideas and present what they have come up with at a session in the Dental school on the 18th April. The members and staff who participated will be able to attend and give feedback, which we will report on in due course. BBS are delighted to forge ahead with the mutual exchange and will keep our members up to speed on exciting developments.
