In recognition of their academic and research achievements, this month Dr. Anand Marya, the Head of Orthodontics, and Dr. Adith Venugopal, were both promoted to Associate Professor.

Dr. Adith and Dr. Anand have been academically very productive this year as both have been invited to be keynote speakers at several international conferences, and invited to provide continuing dental education webinars at many universities.

In addition to this, together Dr Adith and Dr Anand have contributed more than 70 international publications from the UP Department of Orthodontics. Most of these publications have been in Q1 and Q2 ranked international peer-reviewed high-impact dentistry and orthodontic journals. They were both awarded Fellowships to the Royal College of Surgeons, England, and have received various honors throughout the year. This year, Dr Anand was also awarded the International College of Continuing Dental Education Fellowship at an FDI and APDF event held virtually in Sri Lanka. Dr Anand and Dr Adith are both actively involved in teaching year 5 and 6 dental students at UP, and are also responsible for providing orthodontic services at the UP Dental Hospital.

Congratulations to Drs Anand and Adith on their promotions. If you would like to make an appointment for an orthodontic assessment by one of our orthodontic team, please contact the UP Dental Hospital receptionist. Our prices are very competitive.
