Dr. Joharia Azhar Saadat: about the ABLS Written Exams

“I found the exam to be extremely helpful in enhancing my knowledge. Despite having a fellowship in laser dentistry, there were many things that were unclear in my mind. The exam was a practical demonstration of the phrase ‘assessment drives learning’, if I ever saw one. I congratulate you all for establishing and maintaining this standard. I am so glad to have been given a chance to join the ranks of such learned people in the field of laser dentistry.”
