Steve has taught undergraduate and postgraduate endodontics at the University of Sydney and Westmead Hospital since 1979 and is the former Director of Postgraduate Endodontic Education at the University of Sydney.

Steve also does hands on microscope training on an individual basis in dentist’s rooms on request.
Dr Cohn also presents “hands on“ clinics on rubber dam utilisation with Dr Rick Spencer and Ms Barbara Faulkner emphasising rubber dam application in both endodontics and general practice. Steve has also made a rubber dam training video for the ADA (NSW Branch) CPD.
Dr Cohn has also maintained a long interest in dental radiology. He was a consultant to the Dunvale and Rinn corporations and assisted with developing both the Rinn DS and DS Endo devices. He solely designed both the Snapex (1979) and TruView (2017) radiography systems, both specifically designed to be used with all endodontic and restorative procedures carried out under rubber dam. Steve regularly conducts “hands on” radiology workshops throughout Australia. Until recently Dr Cohn was a Federal ADA Media Advisor responsible for the development and delivery of educational content for the dental profession.
Dr. Geoffrey Borlase
BSC, BDS, MDS (Pros) MRACDS (Pros) FRACDS FICD, MScMedicine (Psychotherapy)
Geoffrey is a psychotherapist working in private practice in Sydney CBD.
Psychotherapy has been a natural evolution from working in dentistry in both specialist prosthodontic and hospital based practice. Geoffrey’s shared experiences with patients who present with complex medical and dental health problems and often with deep-seated emotional issues led him to undertake a training in psychotherapy.
Initially he delved into the world of psychology and counselling studying through ACAP and then followed a placement with ASCA – which then led to commencing a training with theUniversity of Sydney Complex Trauma Unit at Westmead Hospital graduating with a Masters of Science in Medicine in Psychotherapy.
Geoffrey is enrolled in continuing professional development activities and as part of his clinical psychotherapy practice has regular supervision.
Geoffrey practices both short and long term psychotherapy informed by the Conversational Model of Psychotherapy. He has a particular interest in individuals who present with: complex trauma and psychosomatic complaints and in patients who have complex life stories who may be suffering from anxiety, depression or post-traumatic stress disorder as a result of their life experiences.

Dr. Kack Kyun Kim
For the last 3 weeks Professor Kack-Kyun Kim has been visiting UP to teach oral microbiology to dental students. Professor Kim has recently retired from Seoul National University Faculty of Dentistry which is regarded as the top dental school in Korea.

In recognition of Professor Kim’s significant contribution to dental education at UP, to Cambodia and to needy patients the President of UP Professor Ian Findlay has awarded Professor Kim with the title of Adjunct Professor of Oral Microbiology.
