ADAQ president

Congratulations to Australian Dental Association Queensland president, Professor Laurie Walsh, on the prestigious award of Officer of the Order of Australia (AO) which was announced in the 2018 Australia Day Honours.

Professor Walsh has been recognised for his distinguished service to dentistry, and to dental science education, as an academic and author, to improved health and safety standards, and through roles with professional associations.

Professor Walsh was head of the University of Queensland’s School of Dentistry from 2004 to 2013, and during that time he was the driving force behind the new state-of-the-art Oral Health Centre at Herston.

As a researcher, Professor Walsh has championed many improvements in dental practice, such as the innovative use of lasers in diagnosis and treatment and the use of biomaterials in tooth and tissue repair.
