Associate Professor Magda S. Eldiwany, DDS, MS, of The University of Texas School of Dentistry at Houston Department of Restorative Dentistry and Prosthodontics was the keynote speaker for the Egyptian Dental Association’s 16th International Dental Congress Nov. 5-8 in Cairo, Egypt.  Despite political turmoil in the region, approximately 4,000 attendees from many Arab countries made it to the event.

Eldiwany’s keynote address was on “Bleaching and Patient Demand.”  She also led a workshop, “Precision in Color Selection,” and gave another lecture on “Excessive Gingival Display: Etiology, Diagnosis and Treatment.”

The Dental Congress was not her only speaking engagement overseas in 2013. In July, she traveled to London at the invitation of the British Dental Bleach Society to address members of the British Dental Association, as well as many private practitioners and vendors. Michelle Eldiwany, a third-year dental student at UTSD, joined her mother on the trip.

Magda Eldiwany is a graduate of both the University of Cairo and UTSD.
