I welcome you all to the 3 rd issue of our official publication - JISP. It has been 5 months since I took over the mantle of President-ship. In retrospect, I can confidently say that we have done reasonably well by conducting a good number of projects and programs. In terms of attendance, involvement and organization, I feel the programs conducted in March and April can be rated successful. Among these, the post-graduate Convention, Workshop on Research Methodology and Training of Teachers program deserve special mention.

The 12 th Indian Society of Periodontology (ISP) post-graduation convention - "PerioRang" held at Grater Noida witnessed the maximum number of registrations and scientific paper presentations and all delegates who attended the program were enriched with the latest knowledge in Periodontics and newer aspects in patient care. Let me place on record my sincere appreciation and gratitude to the Organizing Chairperson, Dr. Vidya Dodwad, Organizing Secretary, Dr. Kanwarjit Singh Asi and all members of the organizing committee and also the management and staff of I.T.S Education Group for their commitment and dedication in organizing this convention in an effective manner.

The Workshop on Research Methodology - "Periosamshodhan," was also organized meticulously well with lectures by eminent faculty, interactive sessions and group workshops and I am sure, this three day event has improved the research talent of all the post graduate teachers who have participated in this program. I would like to congratulate our immediate past President Dr. Mohamed Faizuddin and also the Principal and staff of M. R. Ambedkar Dental College & Hospital for joining hands with ISP to organize this program.

The Training of Teachers Program (TOT) held at Dr. D. Y. Patil Dental College and Hospital, Navi Mumbai was also praiseworthy. My compliments to the program coordinator, Dr. Arvind Shetty, and to the management and staffs of the institution for hosting this ISP event.

The forthcoming programs are Professional Enrichment Program at Baroda, Observation of Anti-tobacco day at Ahmedabad, TOT at Kottayam, EC Meeting at Mumbai and Orientation program for the 1 st year Post-graduate students at Hyderabad, Under-graduate workshop at Nagpur etc…

The other important activity of our society is Oral Hygiene Day celebration. I request all my fellow members, to organize Periodontal Health Care Programs on 1 st August to motivate and educate the common man about the importance of oral and periodontal health.

Let us truly cherish every aspect of our profession and particularly our organization by making the presence of ISP more popular and meaningful throughout our country.

Let us enjoy being together, enjoy our interaction with other associations and society at large.

Let us work together in harmony and friendship for more heights of glory.
