An Eventful year ahead……
Visionaries are not born but futuristic visions are. It was a proud moment indeed for me to take over as the President of this esteemed association. It is a fact that our association IACDE is one of the biggest and most active in India. Our association has popular and powerful academicians as well as clinicians who hold prime posts in the field of dentistry. It is a proud moment for all to be associated with IACDE. It is imperative that we maintain the momentum we have gained as we confront the issues of the coming year and beyond.
Our association born in the year 1982 has now grown beyond imagination with the selfless contribution of many of them. At this juncture, I would like to thank each and everyone for bringing up the association to this level. The two great stars we have in our association are our present president of Dental Council of India Dr. Dibyendu Mazumdar and the past president Dr. Anil Kohli. I would like to personally thank them from the bottom of my heart for their contribution towards the Dental Profession and Conservative Dentistry in particular. All our past Presidents and Secretaries need a special mention. The New Head Office Team which took over in Amritsar in 2016 the Presidentship of Dr.Murali Mohan has taken up lot of activities and has given a new dimension to our Association. A special mention to our Past Editor Dr.Gopi Krishna who has taken our journal to the next level. I express my best wishes to the New Editor Dr.Aditya Mitra and his team to continue good work and to take our journal to greater heights.
Now in the year in front of us, our entire Head office team along with me would definitely like to bring out some healthy and necessary improvements to our association which will benefit the future generation. The entire head office team is now working with a VISION FOR THE FUTURE. On behalf of this team, I take the opportunity to request the support of all the members of Indian Association of Conservative Dentistry and Endodontics and the members of Indian Endodontic Society to ensure that we all sail in the same boat towards future. You will be updated constantly with the actions of the head office. A few of the activities would include the formation of state bodies to felicitate Zonal Convention formation of IACDE Speaker bank ,Student exchange program, celebration of CONS ENDO day and week. In the International front we are eagerly waiting for the Inauguration of Cons Asia, in Seel Korea later this year.
Once again thank you all for giving me the wonderful opportunity to be with you……
