Message By Chairperson
On behalf of the Foundation University College of Dentistry and Hospital, It gives me immense pleasure to welcome you all at the 1 st International Dental Conference, (IDC’21) which is very special because it comes during a time the world is actively trying to recover from a pandemic that took the world by storm.
The theme “Navigating the Future of Dentistry” invites the researchers to gather all the intellectual strength to improve and transform the quality of oral health while overcoming both extrinsic and intrinsic factors which may adversely affect our progress toward this goal. Over the past 5-10 years, the world of dentistry is undergoing rapid changes with the advent of latest innovations, technologies and new treatment patterns, fundamentally transforming patient experience. A remarkable advancements have been seen in computer technology and prosthetics production, disrupting the entire dentistry workflow – from the way patients are diagnosed to the design of prosthetics to how surgeries are planned and conducted and how patient data is exchanged and stored. This is the moment to expand your knowledge, forge collaborations, and utilize all your dedication and skills to uphold the future of dentistry.
As the chairperson of IDC’21, I know that the success of the conference depends ultimately on many people who have worked with us in planning and organizing both the scientific program and supporting arrangements. In particular, I thank all members of the Core Committee for their wise advice and brilliant suggestion on organizing this conference; the Scientific Committee for their thorough and timely reviewing of the papers. Besides, recognition should also go to all the other Organizing Committees who have all worked extremely hard for the details of important aspects of the conference programs and activities.
Have a wonderful conference.
