"Restlessness is discontent and discontent is the first necessity of progress. Show me a thoroughly satisfied man and I will show you a failure."

- Thomas Alva Edison

From the time the last message was written to this one, you would be surprised to know that in 3 months as many programs have/are being conducted.

1 st August was celebrated as Oral Hygiene Day across the country. The highlight of the celebration was coming together of all the dental colleges in Bangalore and Kerala, who participated together with a single goal of spreading the message of oral hygiene and its importance to the common man. I myself had the opportunity to be present at Bangalore for the celebration and was very touched to see the overwhelming response from the members and other professional organizations who participated in celebrating this day by conducting a rally, display of tableau at public places, conducting CDE program, etc. Another such event was organized at Jaipur where the members met the health minister of Rajasthan and released a poster on importance of oral hygiene. All these three programs need a special mention.

Integrate 2012 - A workshop on Implantology was organized in Mahe on 4 th and 5 th of August 2012, where more than 250 delegates participated and were benefitted by interacting with the stalwarts in the field of Implantology. Many such programs should be held across the country to benefit the postgraduates as well as the life members.

21 st -23 rd September 2012 will see the "Training of Teachers" program being conducted at the "Mecca of Education" in India - Manipal. This would be the second program of the kind this year. I request the life members, especially the faculty members, to make use of this wonderful opportunity to become better teachers/guides.

The other regular programs are going on with enthusiasm as well. The essay competition and the ISP - Listerine lecture series are going on and we aim to complete them on time.

The most awaited program of the year, the 37 th National Conference, is around the corner and I am sure many members would have registered for the same. Those who have not registered, kindly do so to enjoy the scientific and the scenic beauty that awaits you in Shimla. I am sure Dr. A. S. Gill, Dr. Ashish Jain, and his dedicated team will definitely have the members showering praises for the scientific program as well as the cultural programs.

"The art of progress is to preserve order amid change, and to preserve change amid order."
