Heartiest Greetings to all on Shubh Janmastami i.e birth anniversary of Lord Sri Krishna. IACDE and JCD do not preach or promote a religion. We firmly believe every religion follows its own way to lead us back to Gods. Even if anyone does not believe in existence of any supreme power it is rules of life to be followed for betterment of oneself.

Why I am talking of religion? Dentistry and dental treatment is our religion. Patients are our Karma. Students will follow our examples as role models to develop into fine human beings. It is for us to develop them into dental professionals who can fit into changing world and shine. We need to think about our teaching methods. Our own sincerity and the final absorption of the teaching and training that is being inculcated. If we donot teach them well we have no right to expect better education for our children. Everything comes back in life – Karma? May be so.

Time has come for clinical orientation of graduate and postgraduate courses. We may need official diploma courses for update in knowledge in every field but no 1, 2 or 3 day courses. And yes we badly need trained dental technician and assistant training courses.

IACDE has introduced and successfully conducted 4 Zonal Conferences. They are for individual student presentation of paper and posters and better evaluation. Earnest request to all faculties to attend them in future. We shall certainly see better paper and posters.

Praying for all.
