Congratulations to our 2020 Awardees!
On October 28, some 40 people attended the RSBO Café scientifique on the topic: Flossing, yes or no?
Few weeks prior to that event, a social media crisis had disrupted our understanding of the benefits of flossing: Study Says Benefits Unproven!
This flood of news has moved health care professionals and members of professional dental organizations around the world—such as the American, Canadian and Australian Dental Associations—to come together and strategize how best to inform the public on this issue.
In Montreal, the Network for Oral and Bone Health Research offered this free event to all. Researchers, clinicians, experts in the analysis of scientific literature as well as the Director of Knowledge Networks for the Canadian Dental Association were invited to outline and discuss the facts.

Congratulations to Dr. Jocelyne Feine from McGill Faculty of Dentistry and fellow member of the RSBO for receiving the prestigious American Dental Association’s Norton M. Ross Award for Clinical Research, in recognition of her contributions to clinical and translation research.
Dr. Feine has been a leading pioneer in evidence-based dental care and in the promotion of the preferences and needs of dental patients. She is recognized worldwide for her work related to implant supported dentures.
This year, a member of our Network Dr. Antonio Nanci, stood out on national and international scene thanks to the high quality of his work. Dr. Nanci is professor and director of the Stomatology Department of the Faculty of Dentistry at the Université de Montréal
On June 22, 2016, Dr. Nancy was granted the prestigious Distinguished Scientist Award in Oral Biology by the International Association for Dental Research. This award acknowledges the quality of his research of the last years in the field of oral biology.
One week later, during a special ceremony on July 1st, the University of Messina in Italy awarded Dr Nanci a Doctorat Honoris Causa in Applied biology and Experimental medicine, in recognition of his outstanding contribution to research on calcified tissues and biomaterials.
Later in August, Dr. Nanci was invited to give the inaugural conference at the Association for Dental Education in Europe (ADEE). The congress title was « Science and the Competent Dentist: an Inter-Professional Perspective » and the role of science in the future dental practice was a key component of the event.
This Fall, the RSBO is proud to provide $150 000 in financial support to students and postdoctoral fellows working in the dental and bone fields. The Network received some 40 applications.

On June 7, 2016, under an RSBO initiative, researchers, health professionals and patient advocacy representants gatherred to talk about osteomalacies, and more precisely two rare diseases : hypophosphatasia and hypophosphatemia.
One of the largest concentrations of hypophosphatasia patients in the world is the Mennonite population in Canada in the Winnipeg (Manitoba) region. Amongst the panelists, you will find those who have contributed to the development of an enzyme replacement therapy for one of these diseases (hypophosphatasia) – developed largely in Montreal − is now on the market in Canada and many countries worldwide.
