This fall marks an important new chapter for the Faculty of Dentistry but coincidently, it is also a very special anniversary for our Conversation Series’ guest this month: our very own Dean Allison. Find out why and much more in this up close and personal interview. A man of many “dental hats” with a unique career path to say the least, Dean Allison shares his thoughts including how his family has inspired his vision for the faculty and a chance encounter during backpacking travels. Meet the man leading the Faculty in this month’s special video feature.

A Chance Encounter
"If I hadn't gone on that trip ... I wouldn't be here [in Montreal] ... so it has had an amazing effect on my life and I have to say, a very positive effect."
A Look Back on Defining Choices
"I don't view it as a mistake ... I see it as a great learning experience which has fed many things that I do."
New Models of Care
"Now, we not only have fantastic students, faculty and staff but also a fantastic new facility ... imagine what we can do! We simply have to use our imagination."
