Topic: Four Simple Rules for Soft Tissue Grafting withDr Hassanpour
Mucogingival defects are often overlooked or overcomplicated. There are multiple and even conflicting views on the etiology and best treatment options for mucogingival defects. We will use clinical photos of real-life cases to simplify mucogingival defects. By the end of the session, the audience should walk out with a better understanding of “Why?”, “When?” and “Where?” soft tissue grafting is indicated and “How” gum grafting is done.
Dr. Hassanpour obtained his Bachelor’s of science degree in molecular biology and a Master’s degree in bone biology from the University of Toronto in 2008 and 2010, respectively. He then went on to complete his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at the University of Toronto in 2014 and immediately entered the Periodontology Speciality program at the University of Toronto. Here he earned his speciality training and degree in Periodontics and obtained his 2nd Master’s degree in innate immunology.
Dr. Hassanpour is now a licensed and a board-certified periodontist and runs a practice limited to Periodontology and implantology at the North York Periodontal Centre. Dr. Hassanpour is a didactic and part time clinical instructor at the University of Toronto’s Graduate and Undergraduate Periodontology clinics. Dr. Hassanpour is the past president of the Toronto Central Dental Society and is currently the Vice president of the Ontario Society of Periodontology.
