It is a great honor and privilege to serve as President of the Indian Society of Periodontology. I thank all the members of the society for giving me the opportunity to serve as the President of the only official national platform of Periodontists of India, with approximately 1500 life members on roll. I will try my level best to do justice to this important responsibility shouldered on me of leading the Indian Society of Periodontology to newer heights.

Our field is special in itself that we deal with a particularly fragile part of human body with unique features. With prognosis and surgical treatment outcome from a major perspective depending upon the oral hygiene maintenance and dynamic immune balance of each individual subject, it is understandable that we have to strive long and hard enough to topple the insurmountable stumbling blocks in proper diagnosis, treatment planning and execution and most importantly devise newer better and foolproof techniques to nullify alarming rate in decreasing patient compliance.

The periodontal disease treatment paradigm should be shifted to "prevention before cure" concept, where we would strive to achieve comprehensive awareness toward etiopathogenesis and causative factors responsible. Focused in-depth awareness campaigns, contrary to popular belief, should be targeted toward bigger and medium population cities. The basic awareness programs should be more widespread into the hitherto inaccessible areas of remote Indian villages. Our vision of a plaque free India may be a distant dream; but if we do not take the first single tiny step, we have not even started.

Wishing all the members a Merry Christmas and Happy & Prosperous New Year!!!
