We note with great interest the article by Aldosari et al,1 which investigated the learning style preferences of dental students at a single institution in Riyadh. Although the original article focuses on a single institution in Riyadh, we believe that the approach to improve student learning is critically important on a global level. We appreciate the authors’ efforts in understanding different learning styles to improve the effectiveness of teaching.
