The beauty of educational exchanges

Today I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Ásgeir Sigurðsson, the newly appointed Chairman of the
Department of Endodontics at the prestigious New York University School of Dentistry.
Dr. Sigurdsson epitomizes the benefits that educational exchanges give Iceland and the United States. Throughout his distinguished career in dentistry, Dr. Sigurdsson has worked both in Iceland and the United States building bridges between the University of Iceland and the University of North Carolina by providing opportunities for Icelandic students to go the U.S. and for American students to come to Iceland. We wish Dr. Sigurdsson much success in his new position knowing that he will continue to build those bridges that are so beneficial to both countries.
