I am teaching staff at university of Tripoli. I have a great experience in teaching Prosthodontics and I am currently a lecturer at the Dental school (Fixed prosthodontics department), university of Tripoli. I have four years of experience working as an assistant lecturer at Dundee Dental School (volunteer) and lecturer for five years at Tripoli Dental Faculty. I worked effectively in a multi-cultural environment providing lectures and clinical skills training as part of my teaching experience. With the attention to detail that pay to every task, I can effectively assess student's performance (paper, clinic and oral examinations) with my colleagues. In addition, I can help set up curriculum and course study as well as using Problem-Based Learning to enhance current courses. I am a team player and work efficiently with clinical staff and can provide support to colleagues, students and other staff members.

Perspective and practice of root caries management: A multicountry study – Part II: A deeper dive into risk factors

Background: The potential of an improved understanding to prevent and treat a complex oral condition such as root caries is important, given its correlation with multiple factors and the uncertainty surrounding the approach/material of choice. Deeper insights into risk factors may improve the quality of treatment and reduce the formation of root surface caries. Aim: The present work aims to gain knowledge about dentists' opinions and experiences on assessing the risk factor related to the development of root caries and to help identify any overlooked factors that may contribute to less efficacious clinical outcomes. Methodology: A questionnaire related to root surface caries was distributed among practicing dentists in nine different countries, namely the United Kingdom, Libya, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Brazil, India, Malaysia, and Iraq. Questionnaire responses were analyzed, and the results were compared among the groups. Results: Dentists around the world ranked the oral hygiene status of patients as the most important factor in the development of root surface caries. Patients with poor oral hygiene, active periodontal disease, reduced salivary flow, and gingival recession are perceived to have a higher risk of developing new root surface caries. There is a greater focus on prevention in the UK and greater levels of untreated dental disease in other countries, especially those recovering from civil wars. Conclusion: This work identified some overlooked factors that may have contributed to the less efficacious clinical outcomes reported in the literature. It is hoped that this deep dive into risk factors coupled with the findings presented in Part I of this study will be used as a basis for a more comprehensive investigation into the management of patients with root surface caries.

Comparison between Unstructured oral examination "UOE" and Objective Structured oral examination "OSOE" in department of fixed prosthodontics/dental faculty university of Tripoli

Aim: the aim of this study was to compare reliability of two different oral exam examinations commonly used alternatively in Dental school of Tripoli university (Objective Structured Oral Exam, and Unstructured Practical Oral exam.).Methodology: The method that has been adapted in this study were clinical and self-structured questioner, and statistically a descriptive and inferential statistical analyses was used, the relative variation,Pearson's correlation test, and "ICC" i.e. Interclass Correlation Coefficient respectively...i.e. quantitative, descriptive correlation study, Result: the inferential statistical analyses yielded a “coefficient of variation” value for R1U and R2U and for R1S and R2S as (28.455, 34.930) and (10.870, 16.028) respectively. Cronbach's alpha reliability was found (0.455) for R1U and R2U raters and (0.951) and was (0.463)R1U and R2U, and for R1S and R2S was significant (P0.001) with value of (0.951 which rated excellent). Bivariate correlation was significant and with value of (0.906test for Structured oral exam, and was not significant with value of (0.054) for unstructured oral. Conclusion: We concluded that the Structured oral exams is more reliable than unstructured oral exam.
