Get to know Dentist Dr. Huda Stipho, who teaches and serves patients in Boston, Massachusetts.

An established dentist, Dr. Stipho works with students as an associate professor at Tufts School of Dental Medicine. She stands as a distinguished figure in the world of prosthodontics, celebrated for her contributions to the field of dental education and her groundbreaking research endeavors. With a  career lasting over decades, she has left an important mark on the practice of prosthodontics, dental materials research, and patient care. 

Joining the prosthodontic department at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in 1999, she became an integral part of the institution’s faculty, specializing in teaching fixed, removable, implant, and CAD/CAM prosthodontics. Her students fondly refer to her as the “queen of removable prosthodontics”. Moreover, she has advisory and principal investigator roles for postgraduate students pursuing their master’s degrees.

Back in the early days of her academic career, she embarked on her educational path by earning her BDS degree from the Dental School of Baghdad University in 1967, a first step that ignited her passion for dentistry. Pursuing her dreams, she furthered her education at the prestigious University of Wales in Cardiff, United Kingdom, where she attained her MScD in prosthodontics in 1977. Her tenure at the Welsh National School of Medicine not only honed her skills but also cultivated her commitment to advancing the field of prosthodontics.

Dr. Stipho’s academic journey led her to King Saud University in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, in 1978. At a time when pioneering women were rare in her field, she broke new ground by becoming the first woman dentist to teach male students in a conservative environment. As chair of the prosthodontic department, she guided the establishment of the dental school’s clinical programs and played an instrumental role in shaping the future of dentistry in the region. Her accomplishments were widely recognized, earning her accolades, awards, and the respect of her students, colleagues, and the university administration.

Beyond her educational contributions, she made substantial strides in research. The doctor’s focus on dental materials, such as the properties of acrylic resin composite materials reinforced with chopped fibers, highlighted her commitment to advancing the longevity and quality of dental prostheses. Her investigations into the color stability of glass fiber-reinforced PMMA acrylic resin and the durability of repaired PMMA acrylic resin joints further showed her dedication to enhancing dental care.

Continuously advancing her efforts, Dr. Stipho was an active member in prominent dental societies like the European Dental Society, the British Dental Society, the Saudi Dental Society, and the American College of Prosthodontics, IADR. Her international recognition includes the prestigious Key of Success Award in Medical Science and her inclusion in Who’s Who in the World.

Dentistry, also known as Dental and Oral Medicine, is a branch of medicine that consists of the study, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases, disorders, and conditions of the oral cavity. Dentists diagnose and treat dental issues and help patients develop better oral hygiene regimens. They clean teeth, correct bite issues, perform surgeries and extractions, and perform other duties to ensure that the teeth and mouth are healthy.
