My Dear Dentist Friends,

A warm welcome to the upgraded Philippine Dental Association (PDA) website! The page has been revamped, meticulously updated with the recent and upcoming events to keep up with the fast paced technological advancements.

As you all may know, the recently conducted 110th PDA Annual Convention and Scientific Sessions has had a taste of modern touch. Approximately 20% of the total registrations were facilitated through online processing, attendance to each session was kept in check by barcode scanners posted on every entrance/exit points throughout the entire sessions, evaluations for the scientific sessions and speakers were accessed through a specified link, and even the abstract booklet and program at a glance can be downloaded and printed— unlimited, for everybody’s use. These initiatives did not only save a hundred thousand trees, but also valuable funds which were in turn allocated for the support of community programs and continuing professional education programs as well.

With so many activities on hand, we all foresee a fruitful year ahead of us. To name a few, the organization has been actively combating illegal production and peddling of orthodontic brackets and such dental instruments that encourage Do-It-Yourself (DIY) braces, and illegal practice of non-licensed dental practitioners through collaboration with local governments units, strong implementation of Republic Act 9484, and information drive to the barangays, schools, and the social media to reach even those in the outskirts of Metro Manila.

Through this website, I, your president, hope to reach out and nourish a growing relationship to each and every member of our mother organization. Your continued earnest support is the stronghold of this system. May we all rise up and together, head on towards advancement and appreciation of our profession.

Always at your service,
