According to Prof. (Dr.) Mahesh Verma, President, Indian Dental Association (National) & Director – Principal Maulana Azad Institute of Dental Sciences, “The Indian Dental Association, of which I am the president, is privileged to play host to the unique event of significance attended by a truly global audience. Really speaking, this is the largest dental congress to be held in the world. And, it’s the second time the coveted congress is being held in our country after a gap of ten years. Needless to say, it is a rare honour for any country, particularly for our country with over a billion population and over 300 dental colleges, to host an event of this universal importance.

With its burgeoning population, poverty and inequality, and a preponderant proportion of the people being socially and economically marginalised, the Congress will assume tremendous importance in improving their oral health. A host of internationally distinguished speakers of erudition and scholarship will be participating in a cutting edge scientific programme jointly developed by the FDI and the Indian Dental Association (IDA). ”

Dr. Ashok Dhoble, Hon. Secretary General, IDA said “The Indian Dental Association is deeply honoured to host the 102nd Congress in India. India with over a billion population is an ideal location for an oral healthcare programme of this magnitude, as the emerging global oral health issues demand immediate attention. I am confident that the deliberations at the scientific conference would pave the way for new policy prescription, showcase a mini global dental market, and contribute towards acceleration of dental industry in India.”

The congress is significant in the context of improving the oral health scenario of the increasingly burgeoning population and the need to bring back the fading smile from the faces of the socially marginalized, in alignment with the government’s ambitious programme for attaining optimal oral health by 2020.
