Dr SM Balaji was invited as a special guest to visit the school by Dr Ophir Klein who is the Program Director of the “UCSF Program in Craniofacial Biology” during his recent trip to the country. This was in recognition of his research into newer surgical techniques to obtain better surgical results with less number of surgeries and a shorter convalescence period.

Dr. SM Balaji met with Dr Ray Stewart who is the chair of the Department of Pediatric Dentistry. He presented Dr Ray Stewart him with his “Textbook of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery” and “Clinical Cranio-Maxillofacial Surgery” book. Dr Stewart expressed how the books would be a valuable addition to the school’s library

These books have been authored by Dr SM Balaji. The former is a textbook for undergraduate and post graduate students in dentistry while the latter charts the milestone surgeries in his career as a Cranio-Maxillofacial surgeon.
