After several years of negotiation, the project of the new private dental school of Rabat in Morocco (International University of Rabat - UIR) finally became a reality with the inauguration of two new teaching labs on the 1st of October 2016. This success was made possible thanks to the patience and perseverance of Dr. Ismaël Yacoubi, CEO of Le MédicoDentaire and official importer of W&H in Morocco.
