Dr. Jocelyne Feine, recipient of the Norton M. Ross Award (ADA)

Dr. Jocelyne Feine has always thought differently, fortunately. She has always been curious and without a doubt, passionate about her work and about people. Over the years, her journey has led from Houston, Texas, where she once practiced dentistry in a private office, taught at the dental faculty and completed a Masters’ degree in neurophysiology, all the way to Montreal, Canada at McGill’s Faculty of Dentistry.
