  1. Excellent project Zanab! It is so great to see research related to severe obesity. There is a huge unmet need and stigma related to this special needs population who face challenges on many different levels in accessing oral healthcare – and your findings indicate it spans across ALL SIX domains!! As you identified, to reduce the stigma and start breaking down these barriers, it has to start with increasing awareness and knowledge about obesity…your research and your video abstract does just that. Keep up the great work, I’m looking forward to hearing your presentation!
