“If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”

–Martin Luther King Jr.

We all have a desire in us to move forward and grow successful. To upgrade our clinical knowledge, continuing educational programs are required. Field of Periodontology is constantly changing and evolving, adapting itself to new demands and new circumstances. In current scenario, there are great changes in concepts, knowledge and technology, and therefore it stands to reason that education must include preparation for the changes that take place. The ultimate measure to excel in the field of Periodontology is to evolve a education system that is deep rooted in the scientific knowledge and latest advances in technology.

Indian Society of Periodontology (ISP) provides visionary periodontal education and guidance to budding periodontist to upgrade their knowledge and therapeutic methods. ISP is helping periodontist to build a successful practice and achieve a work-life balance. It inspires clinicians to narrow the gap between what is known and what is practiced.

ISP has been organizing various educational programmes like colloquium, integrate, Post Graduate convention, Workshops and conferences. It is planning to conduct convention at Pondicherry for undergraduate level that will help students to understand scope of Periodontology and will motivate them to pursue their carrier in the same. Students should use these opportunity to clear their query and enhance their clinical skills.

To excel in clinical skill - Put intention and focus into work and remember, the difference between where you are now and where you want to be is your vision. The way you're going to get there is by your level of execution. I look forward to celebrate your vision becoming a reality in the near future.

I thank all the EC members, life members for taking ISP forward towards the scientific platform and commitment for the various programs throughout the year.
