“Don't watch the clock; do what it does. Keep going.”
The society has become synonymous with conducting quality programs which are being highly appreciated across the country by all the dental specialty organizations. The motive was to impart latest and the best in our field and in the process we have become the better, if not the best.
As mentioned in the earlier message, the first of its kind program – Restorative-driven Implant program on human cadaver – was organized from 22nd to 24th July at Banaras Hindu University by Dr. Farhan Durrani. The highlight being the hands-on being conducted on the human cadaver. The program had around 85 registrations and there were a few delegates from the neighboring countries as well. The education and training being provided at these types of programs speaks volumes about the society being committed toward quality of the programs being conducted. The society is very thankful to Dr. Farhan for having organized a novel program.
ISP Colloquium is another theme-based event which is being organized for the postgraduates. The program with the theme “controversies in periodontics” was organized on 30th–31st July at Sri Aurobindo Institute of Dental Sciences, Indore and on 6th–7th August at Dr. H S Judge Institute of Dental Sciences and Hospital, Chandigarh. The postgraduates with doubts on various topics in periodontics were able to clear them. Both the venues saw an attendance of over 120 delegates. The third program in the series is scheduled to be held in September. The head office thanks Dr. I. K. Kanteshwari and Dr. Ashish Jain for conducting the program in a meticulous manner.
Parichay – an introductory program for the newly joined postgraduates was conducted at Mahe Institute of Dental Sciences on 27th–28th August, and the delegates were introduced to the various aspects of learning during the postgraduate program. The faculty for the program was seen to be involved with the delegates in sharing their knowledge and experience. The program was attended by 102 delegates from in and around the state of Kerala. The head office thanks Dr. Sanil P. George for organizing the program in a picturesque venue.
I take this opportunity to call upon all the fellow periodontists to enroll themselves as member of ISP if they have not done so yet. Unity is strength and together we can achieve anything.
“Quality is not an act, it is a habit.”
