Greetings and good wishes,

IAPHD has entered the 21 st year after its inception. The past president and committee members have sincerely contributed to the present status. The IAPHD journal is now an indexed journal and is being brought out by Medknow publication. Our members need to be more proactive and contribute wholeheartedly toward community oral health improvement. The present health budget is further reduced; thereby, clearly indicating financial crunch. The plausible approach to improve oral health would be by promoting good oral hygiene and preventive measures rather than resorting to treatment, which is not attainable by all due to lack of improvement in health care delivery system in our country. I request all members to emphasize on the urgent need for preaching and practice of primary prevention.
