The Indian Society of Periodontology had taken a step toward the prevention of periodontal disease among the Indian population which is a very Herculean task. The well-established fact of the link between periodontitis and preterm low birth weight babies was the area we focused on and wanted to bring to the notice of the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India, through the Dental Council of India regarding the improvement of the oral/periodontal health of the pregnant women of the country attending the primary health centers for their regular antenatal and postnatal checkups. With the untiring efforts of Dr. Sangeeta Dhir and her team, the society developed the oral health checkup pro forma which would be attached to the existing maternal health card issued by the health ministry, which would enable the pregnant women to undergo dental/oral health checkup and seek treatment for the dental problems. The council has approved the proposal and the same has been sent to the ministry for further action. We thank Dr. Vikas Jindal, member DCI for having tabled the matter at the council for approval.

On 3rd–4th September, the second program in the Parichay series was conducted at K. M. Shah Dental College, Vadodara. The orientation program was attended by 125 postgraduate students who have joined the specialty of periodontics. The head office thanks Dr. Neeraj Deshpande and members of ISP study group, Vadodara, for organizing the program.

The ISP Colloquium series continued and the third in the series was conducted on 9th–109th September at Tagore Dental College, Chennai. The theme-based event was well attended and received appreciation from the 150 delegates who attended the eye opener program. The head office thanks Dr. Chitra Chandran and her team for having organized this program.

The professional enrichment programs are conducted throughout the year, but a program worth mentioning is for the efforts being taken up in areas where periodontics has not made a mark. The head office thanks Dr. Subashchandra Raj for having organized the day-long program at Bhubaneshwar for the general practitioners to highlight the importance of periodontics in day-to-day practice, in association with the Indian Dental Association, Odisha.

The Mega event of the year – The 41st Annual conference is going to be hosted at Nagpur. I am sure Dr. Abhay Kolte and his team will organize a wonderful event as he is well known for his organizational skill having conducted many national, events at Nagpur. I on behalf of all the members of the society wish them the very best for the conference. I also ask upon the fellow members to register for the conference and be a part of this scientific and cultural extravaganza being organized in the heart of India and hope to meet you all at Nagpur.

Change your thoughts and you change your world. Norman.
