Season's Greetings to All!

Healthcare services are being looked into by the Central Government with a positive perspective.

Several landmark proposals and decisions are being taken up by the National Health Commission. Compulsory Tobacco Cessation Centers in all the dental colleges is a welcome decision, with the new policies; dental profession will have more opportunities, especially in Public Health Dentistry Department.

Hearty congratulations to the entire team and organizing committee of the 13th IAPHD P.G. Convention at Maulana Azad Institute of Dental Sciences, New Delhi. It was a wonderfully planned and conducted event.

It is indeed a great effort by our Hon. Secretary Dr. Sabhyasachi Saha for working toward organizing an international conference in 2020, outside the country. I am sure that it will be a great experience and a spectacular event.

My heartfelt appreciation to the entire editorial committee of the JIAPHD for having our journal enlisted in the list of journals approved by U.G.C. I am sure that the editorial office would be working hard to get our journal indexed at a higher level.

I appeal to all the Professors, Guides, and P.G. students to send all their good research work for the publication in JIAPHD, which helps in sharing and encouraging others. I am sure that the journal, which is published quarterly, should be a monthly publication in the near future.

Compliments to Dr. K. R. Sowmya and team for all their efforts!

Looking forward to all the upcoming events of IAPHD and good support and encouragement from all the members!

Best wishes.
