While touring the John B. Macdonald Building during renovations, Dr. Amin Shivji stopped in the area of the old clinic, where his assigned open operatory once stood, and gazed up at the ceiling. As a young dental student in the early ’90s, he and his classmates shared some interesting antics, including one that placed popcorn kernels strategically near the hot overhead lights . . . You can imagine what happened next!
Now some 20 years later, Dr. Shivji, an alumnus and leader in the dental community, has helped create another impact at UBC Dentistry along with 28 colleagues from 123 Dentist.com. Two newly renovated conference rooms in the JBM building have been named for Amin & Sharon Shivji and Family and for 123Dentist.
