I am honoured to have been associated with the International College of Dentists (India, Sri Lanka and Nepal Section-VI) which is one of the most active sections of the ICD around the world. ICD India Section has a long history of contribution and service to humanity and leadership to uphold the highest professional competent of the dentists who are expected to provide excellence in treatment with ethical values and maintain cordial relations with fellows and in the society.
The International College of Dentists is the leading international honoured society for dentists is credited to Dr. Louis Ottofy & Tsurukichi Okumura who had their roots in Japan and United States of America. One of the oldest professional organisation of dentists has 15 sections across the globe with more than 12000 proud members. I owe significant gratitude to my predecessors who have selflessly upheld the values of International College of Dentists over the years and expanded its horizon across the country, and to Sri Lanka and Nepal. As a President of the ICD, I urge the members to provide selfless service of highest clinical quality to patients. They must adopt at least a few needy patients who are suffering from menos of dental diseases. As a part of humanitarianism service during this year, we have already undertaken activities to promote an enhance advance skills of fellow dental surgeons to adopt new technology with changing times. At this point, it is pertinent that India, Sri Lanka & Nepal has been a very active section among rest of the world and it is important that the regents should undertake activities in their zone which is northern, southern, eastern, central and western centres. As we also must continue to increase our membership by nominating those dentists who have made significant contributions to the profession and have maintained highest clinical and ethical values.
