Welcome to the world of ICD
The International College of Dentists (ICD or “College”) is the world’s oldest and largest honor society for dentists™. Conceived in 1920, the College currently has over 12,000 members, in 122 countries, who have been awarded the prestigious title of Fellow in the ICD.
Fellowship in the College is extended by invitation only. A nominated dentist must pass a rigorous, peer review process leading to the recognition of the individual’s “outstanding professional achievement, meritorious service and dedication to the continued progress of dentistry for the benefit of humankind.”
Recognizing service and the opportunity to serve
All members of the College regardless of their native language or country of residence, adhere to one universal motto, Recognizing Service and the Opportunity to Serve. The words that appear along the photos highlight the values that define the International College of Dentists as well as the realization of the motto in our projects throughout the world.
