Last Friday dental students from UP had two lectures from an Australian dentist, Dr Beata Rumianek. Dr Beata has a Masters in Health Sciences majoring in Sexual Health – in particular sexual diseases which can be transmitted via the oral route and manifest in the oral cavity. In her lectures, Dr Beata focused on HIV and Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) infections. She gave a comprehensive overview, and shared with us her own research about HPV infections in patients in her dental practice in Australia. The lectures covered the epidemiology, presentation and management of the two infections – and their relevance to dentists in Cambodia. Dr Beata would be happy in the future to cooperate with us on research on these and similar topics related to the Cambodian population.
