Miss Universe : advocate of healthy teeth
Iris Mittenaere, aspiring dentist from Lille, north of France, was elected miss universe 2017 in Manila, the Philippines on January 30, 2017. Iris is the second from France to win the title since Christiane Martel in 1953.
At 23 years old, the newly crowned queen is pursuing a degree in dental surgery.
Besides dental school, Iris is also fond of extreme sports, traveling the world and cooking French dishes, according to her profile at the Miss Universe website.
As a dental student, she wants to continue her awareness campaign for dental and oral care, taking her campaign all around the world.
The new Miss Universe Iris Mittenaere revealed the advocacy she would be pursuing now that she is the new queen – she would be fighting for healthy teeth.
We consider this a happy day for dentistry and to the promotion of optimal oral and general health for the whole world.
Iris Mittenaere is an inspiration to every dentist to get passionate and pursue the things they want to achieve in their lives.
