Following her graduation with an honours degree in dentistry and achieving a Master's Degree in Oral Medicine from Cairo University, Egypt, she completed a period of general dental training and became a Member of the Faculty of Dental Surgery, Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow. Later on, she was awarded one of the very few academic training posts in Clinical Oral Microbiology in the UK and became a Fellow of the Royal College of Pathologists by examination. She is one of only five Clinical Oral Microbiologists nationally. Her PhD thesis focused on the interrelationship between oral microbiome and host immune response in patients with Behçet's Disease. For the academic merit of this work, she was awarded the Young Investigator Award, the International Conference on Behçet’s Disease, Japan, 2012. In the last ten years, Dr Seoudi developed an interest in investigating the effect of antimicrobial stewardship interventions on the antimicrobial prescribing patterns in secondary dental care. She is leading the audit subgroup of the English Surveilance Programme of Antimicrobial Utilisation and Resistance (ESPAUR) Dental group nationally and contributing toward a national antimicrobial stewardship in dentistry.
