The University of Jordan (UJ) School of Dentistry alumna, Dr. Suhaib Saidam, on Monday has been recognized by UJ President Prof. Nathir Obeidat during the Deans council's meeting for receiving Barry Evans Prize from the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland.

Obaidat said that UJ cares to recognize distinguished alumni and encourages, supports, motivates them to continue the path of progress and success, as students' success is at the essence of the University's mission and vision.

Dean of the School of Dentistry, Prof. Zaid Al-Bitar, congratulated Saidam on his excellence, pointing out that this distinction did not come by chance, but rather the result of effort, sincerity, and passion for learning.

In turn, Saidam expressed his sincere appreciation to the School who did not hesitate to provide guidance and academic information to maxillofacial surgeons and the residency program.
