Professor Hesham Marei, Dean of the College of Dentistry at Gulf Medical University, said: "The Gulf University has excellent scientific capabilities and expertise, especially regarding scientific research, and we will share those experiences with Appolonia World to achieve our goals. Also, we will give them access to an electronic library database, which will be an excellent resource for Appolonia".

He added that cooperation with an institution such as Appolonia World Group for Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics is essential because of the institution's excellent technical capabilities and scientific and practical expertise, which makes this cooperation a successful scientific step in the interest of Gulf University students, and we are confident that the collaboration between us will yield great results soon. In addition, Appolonia World Group is considered the most prominent specialized center in the field of pediatric dentistry and orthodontics in the region and has experts with a long history in the area.

Dr. Basil Al Hilwani, Founding Member of Appolonia World Group, said: "Appolonia World is not only a group of clinics specialized in pediatric dentistry and orthodontics but also has other visions and goals that fall under our social responsibility towards the people and government of UAE. For this reason, cooperation with Gulf University was one of those desired goals, as it is a leader in medical and health professional education, especially in dentistry. We are happy that this cooperation between us will help students to get the practical experience related to pediatric dentistry in Appolonia clinics".
