BEIJING, Sept. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical Care Technologies Inc. (OTCBB: MDCE), a rapidly growing children's healthcare service provider, has taken another major step in establishing credibility as a new leader in China's multi-billion dollar pediatric dentistry industry with the announcement of Dr. Feisel Haji, B.Sc. (HONS), D.D.S. to its Medical and Dental Advisory Board (MDAB). The Company is now hailed as the model of healthcare and preventative medicine and dentistry by top officials in China.
Dr. Haji, whose career in dentistry spans more than 15 years, brings a wealth of experience and professional insight to the Company. Dr. Haji maintains a private dental practice, Soho Dental, in downtown Toronto, Canada. He obtained his Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) degree in 1996 from the University of Western Ontario, Canada. Upon graduating, he completed a hospital residency, treating medically compromised patients at Hamilton General Hospital. Dr. Haji practices all disciplines of dentistry with a particular interest in dental implant surgery, oral rehabilitation and pediatric dentistry. Dr. Haji is member of the Ontario Dental Association, the Toronto Implant Study Club and the Academy of General Dentistry.
"We are now addressing dentistry, the prevention and preservation of long term dental care using cutting-edge state-of-the-art tools and techniques to prevent tooth decay and address the issues of tooth loss in young children," stated Ning Wu, President of Medical Care Technologies Inc. "In our efforts to provide our little patients with the high quality dental care they deserve at every visit, we have tapped the best in the field of dentistry. Dr. Haji's experience in dealing with pediatric tooth decay, and the associated health implications, will be of tremendous benefit to our patients."
As an advisory board member, Dr. Haji will take the lead in guiding dental care and treatment initiatives for children in China and will help further shape the company's Chinese subsidiary, Teddyberry™ and Company's, dental hygiene department.
Dr. Haji states, "Poor oral health in children can hinder their ability to maintain good nutrition as well as adversely affecting their speech development. Maintaining the baby teeth in good health can ensure the ideal development and eruption of the permanent teeth. It should be our goal to provide children with the best possible dental care as oral health is often a reflection of one's overall general health and well being."
Dr. Haji's appointment is the latest in a series of high profile appointments on the MDAB. The MDAB is a consultative panel offering strategic guidance so that the Company can tailor its medical and dental services and products to more effectively meet the needs of their patients. The appointments are part of the Company's drive to recruit distinguished members of the medical and dental professions to ensure its children's health and wellness centers serve at the forefront of new care initiatives and treatment standards.
The initial members of the MDAB are: Dr. Mark Langweiler (DC, DAAPM, DACFE), Dr. Zhiping Bu (Director of Pediatrics, Nanning Red Cross Hospital), and Dr. Peter J. Herbert (MBBS, FRCP).
