Allow me to start this note not only with New Year greetings but also with heartfelt thanks for choosing me to serve you in this year as your leader.

Indian Society of Periodontology with its glorious past, today stands tall and big and under its shadow we try to keep the flame of "Science of Periodontology" burning. As I start this year of my presidentship with certain dreams and achievable goals, which would hopefully keep our society growing, I wish to bring forward one of the issues that we had been discussing for a while at various frontiers but never formalized it. We know that we have numbers, be it of the Periodontists, faculty, students, or the patients. We have the numbers, of the colleges, yet we have not been able to establish "Centres of Excellence" - centers with a focus. With over 200 post graduate Peridontics departments in the country producing may be around 1,000 research theses ever year, yet there is a "disconnect". I am sure if the data are compiled the country over, there will be not only overlaps in the work but also repetitions. I think the need of today is to "talk and collaborate." Till the time we do not talk, we do not share our research plans we shall not be able to collaborate. And all this is to start now if we have to internationalize our presence. Let us take one step at a time. Let us collaborate at zonal level. Let us plan that at least one dissertation from our department shall be a collaborative effort with one or more of the periodontics departments in other institutions. I am sure the more we share more would we achieve but also that more we shall enjoy doing the science and living the science of periodontology.

I request all of you to please connect with the head office, send in your suggestions, your expectations from the society and we shall try to address them in all sincerity.

Once again thank you all.
