  • Hira Bilal

    Hi Dr. SanaThis is Dr. Hira BilalI read your article and found it very informative. You did a great job there. A very nice selection of the topic and very well explained as well. I suggest it should be translated into other languages so that everyone could get awareness about public health issues of developing countries.

    I see Dr. Irfan Qamaruddin (Head of the Dept of Orthodontics, BMU) and Dr. Fareed Mohsin (Head of the Dept of Periodontics, BMU) have appreciated your work in earlier comments. Getting recognition from your professors is an achievement in itself. Can’t wait for you to win the contest! You must be getting emails of appreciation from others as well.

    All the very best. God bless!
