Byline: RABIA ZULFIQAR-Lahore

Pakistani Fakhr-ul-Tahseen and dental technologist Rabia Zulfiqar have written a book on practical dentistry, making her the youngest Pakistani author on the subject to write book in one year.

The book, titled Rabia's Manual of Prosthodontics, was published in 2017 and is launching its second edition soon. It is shelved in Pakistan's largest library, Quaid-i-Azam Library, Bagh-e-Jinnah, Lahore.

Rabia says that she has written the book to make the dental community especially dental technologists, proud.

There is a misconception that they cannot progress in dentistry and they do not have any future.

She says that her book is based on her own experience in the dental laboratory. This is very helpful for both dental technologists and dental surgeons who do not easily understand the procedures of the dental laboratory.

She started writing during her graduation when she felt difficulty in gaining practical experience as there was no one to guide during practice.

She then decided to write a book to provide guidance to the students and there was no one in Pakistan who had covered the same subject.

This is the first specified book for dental technologists. She further says that people thought that prosthodontics is very dry subject to understand but I have taken it as challenge and completed my book. This is the first book on dental technology in history.

Rabia Zulfiqar, in 25 years of age has graduated from King Edward Medical University (KEMU) Lahore as a Dental Technologist.

She is the first medical student from her area and the first medical graduate from her family.

She received more than 100 certificates of education, sports and social welfare during her graduation. She has also published seven international research publications.

She has three years of experience and started her dental practice during in studies due to his enthusiasm and passion. She worked as a reviewer in Indian and British research journals.

She is currently working as a research associate at The Spire, an international research incubator and promoting research culture.

It is also preserved in the King Edward Medical Library and other medical libraries in Lahore and Islamabad.
