Usually the conversation will focus on the justifiable pride in our admirable humanitarian work educational programs and demonstrated leadership throughout the world. These qualities are fundamental to describing what the College does however they do not focus on the most admirable distinction of membership in the College. The reference shared in both the ICD motto recognize service and the opportunity to serve and in the mission statement recognition of outstanding professional achievement and meritorious service is recognition. From early on this was clearly the Colleges raison dtre. While humility is admirable and a familiar trait shared among Fellows the founding fathers understood that publicly recognizing dentists who have made major contributions to the enhancement of oral health and the profession creates shining role models for colleagues to emulate. And to those outside the profession ICDs preeminent international recognition illuminates the less publicly heralded values of dentists namely altruism humanitarianism leadership and education. The impeccable credentials of ICD Fellows are readily acknowledged and enshrined in the collective understanding that every new inductee has successfully passed through rigorous selection procedures including a scrutinized peer- review nomination process. In fact it is the most stringent of any honor society for dentists in the world. Only then can a dentist be admitted to the College and share the enviable bond of humanitarianismcollegialityandmutualrespectthattranscends all manner of national borders religions race cultural heritage and ideology in over 100 countries. No wonder the ICD has earned and robustly retains the venerated position of being the oldest and largest honor society for dentists in the world. We cannot overlook however that this singular position of the ICD also bears responsibility to recognize all who are deserving of the honor. The College leadership has put into action concrete strategy to identify and recognize deserving dentists throughout the world. Part of that strategy requires that we do a better job explaining the College to the public and potential Fellows. And for that we have to be unhesitant about heralding the unparalleled unforgiving prerequisites of character and accomplishments required for a College invitation. These qualities along with the pristine global esteem reflected on those who have earned the FICD title demonstrate what is truly unique about the College and unequivocally distinguish its members. Every College inductee has successfully passed through rigorous selection procedures including a multi-layered carefully scrutinized peer review nomination process. In fact it is the most stringent of any honor society for dentists in the world. THE EDITORS PEN WHAT IS TRULY UNIQUE ABOUT THE COLLEGE S.

The following is a summary of the main areas of responsibility. International Council Responsibilities The International Council will meet annually to set policy directives and approve where required actions taken on its behalf as well as direct the global College towards increasing growthandspreadingICDinfluencebyadheringtothefollowing Adopt an efficient and proactive approach to ICD Governance Review ICD Bylaws and make revisions where indicated Adopt performance standards for Sections and Councilors Ensure a symbiotic Council - Section relationship Section Responsibilities The chief responsibility of the Section is to effectively administer a country or group of countries within the ICD through the leadership of its officers and board of regents supported by the International Council and EC. In addition to Identify and nominate all deservingqualified candidates Conduct at least one induction ceremony per annum Organize regular ICD humanitarian educational activities Elect Councilors fully committed to Council activities Designate a Section Communication Officer Sponsor events that encourage collegiality and provide value Elect officers and Councilors with prescribed terms of office Maintain size commensurate with areas dentist population Executive Committee Responsibilities The Executive Committee EC is responsible to engage Section leadership and ensure their responsibilities are being fulfilled while providing oversight and accountability for compliance and remedies as needed in the application of the principals of ICD governance. In order for the EC to effectively meet its responsibilities the Secretary General SG will provide the EC with regular updates on Section activities elaborating on any areas of concern and provide suggested remedies. The EC may authorize recommendations initiatives and any emergent requests of the SG. ICD Sponsoring and Fundraising Sponsorship from international corporations and organizations has increased as ICD becomes more involved in global educational and humanitarian projects. In order to avoid the confusion from having our supporters receive multiple requests the College Office will coordinate information and contacts with sponsors and donors keeping all parties informed of activities regarding current and potential supporters throughout the world. To assist the College to more efficiently manage these global initiatives ICD Sections Regions or Fellows seeking funds from or to establish a relationship with international entities will need to coordinate their plans with the College Office.

It is important to distinguish between the two funds. Program Update Essentially the Diamond Sponsors program exists in order to fund a variety of College activities including the cost of production and distribution of our hallmark publication The Globe. In addition the College needs to be funded for many more activities than it is currently able to carry out. Unfortunately the revenue from new inductees and annual dues paid by Fellows does not match up to our requirements. With the sheer number of issues confronting the College today there is a need to have additional College Office staff to help with our communications and a need to fund the ICD at major international meetings. The list goes on and on and that is why we have created a task force this year with the specific remit to explore ways of achieving non-dues revenue in a sustainable manner. The College Office is working at full speed and that is why we desperately need more revenue to alleviate the situation This year I am delighted to tell you that Henry Schein Inc. and the International Congress of Oral Implantologists ICOI have agreed to renew their three-year rolling sponsorships and we thank them profusely for their kindness. In addition we are very gratified that the Morita and MegaGen companies have graciously extended their participation as Diamond Sponsors at least through 2016. The bottom line here is that a modern progressive organization such as ours needs sufficient funds in a period of growth and high activity and this comes under the purview of the Diamond Sponsor banner. Global Visionary Fund In contrast to the Diamond Sponsor program the Global Visionary Fund GVF is a philanthropic arm of the College founded by the International Council to ensure that it accomplishes its mission with regard to educational and humanitarian care programs. Ownership is shared by all of us in every Section of the College and it looks to fund projects in low and middle income countries that are underserved in terms of oral health care. The GVF is managed by its officers and board of directors and seeks sponsorship in order to fund its charitable activities. The GVF received a grant of US 100000 from the Henry Schein Cares foundation over three years for materials and equipment for which we are extremely grateful. The Grant Process Once a grant request is received it is sent to the GVF Managing Committee who can then send it on if necessary to a number In contrast to the Diamond Sponsor program the Global Visionary Fund GVF is a philanthropic arm of the College founded by the International Council to ensure that it accomplishes SPECIAL RECOGNITION was given in Dublin to individuals who have made exceptional contributions to the College funding programs.

When it has been approved and this takes into account the cost health benefits and other issues Henry Schein organizes delivery of the equipment or supplies through its extensive worldwide network. The GVF management has taken the view that it is better and more appropriate to award grants up to a maximum of US 5000-6000 so that the aid reaches more projects and possibly more underserved communities. Additionally the more grants we award the more stories we have to tell which is good for us and good for the people who receive them. To date we have arranged equipment and supplies to go to the Chogoria and Kikuyu medical camps in Kenya to Mundo O Sorrir Smiling World in Portugal and to the Honduras mission trip to a childrens orphanage. Notwithstanding this some of the GVF funds have been used for developing and distributing a digital GVF brochure for informational and advertising purposes. Monetary funds have also been used to foster the Dental Safety Program DSP entailing payment towards the implementation of this signature project by sending experts in safety asepsis and prevention to countries that have a need for these programs. The DSP was first given by Dr. Rhagu Puttaiah in Chengdu China last year and again with a train the trainer element in India in Feb. 2016. Misch Legacy Endowment The big news so far this year is that we have received US 200000 from ICOI to kick off a new endowment fund named after one of the founders of the ICOI Dr. Carl Misch called the Misch Legacy Endowment MLE. The goal of the current campaign is to reach one million dollars with further donations from graduates of the Misch Institute members of the ICOI ICD and others in dentistry as well as commercial entities. It is a major aspiration to achieve this goal which could help the GVF to grow and become sustainable in the long term. First FIF Challenge Atlantic Crossing On a smaller scale the Fellow Inspires Fellow FIF program has been introduced. I am pleased to announce that my sea crossing of the Atlantic Ocean has received over US 7000 to date in sponsorship for the GVF. Any Fellow can emulate this with their own particular challenge whether it be climbing a mountain swimming a sea or running a marathon. There are thousands of challenges that we could set ourselves depending on our interests and proclivities. With the support of our friends and colleagues we can attain significantly more funds for the GVF. Your challenge is waiting and your College is willing to support you. In conclusion it is important that we continue to strive for our funding so that the College itself can grow and mature into a state that is fit for a 21st century organization. It is up to you to help of the founders of the ICOI Dr. Carl Misch called the Misch Legacy Endowment MLE.

To reach this milestone it has been necessary to be flexible and to keep up with changes that occur in the world. The past year has been a period of significant change. Sharing the Knowledge Support for dental education was one of the reasons ICD was proposed in 1920. Over the years dental education has become the work of dental schools larger dental associations and the industry. However ICD still has a role in altruistic dental education. ICDs Global Visionary Fund GVF supports continuing dental education programs where a need exists by sponsoring speakers mostly in developing nations or wherever and whenever the topic needs attention. Recognizing Dentists Mobility A dentist who qualifies for Fellowship may now belong to any Section under certain provisions adopted by the International Council. It is realized the traditional pathways to fellowship do not always meet the circumstances of some dentists. Examples would be dentists who are immigrants or those who are invited to fellowship by ICD Fellows they meet during international travel. Also dentists may be overlooked for fellowship for non-dental reasons such as tensions between nations and political or religious affiliations. To Grow or Not To Grow Bigger is not always better but growing the ICD will be necessary for a healthy future. An increase in numbers is required to achieve financial security while keeping international dues at moderate levels. Also ICD needs a larger presence in the world for increased influence and impact on issues we believe in. While some Fellows prefer the exclusivity that comes with a smaller membership most believe ICD should be inclusive to all who qualify. The International Council has set a goal of increasing the number of Active Fellows by 20 percent. International Affiliations The College continues to extend its influence in the world through collaboration and programing with related international organizations. Dr. Dov Sydney recently represented ICD during talks with FDI World Dental Federation in Geneva regarding future joint initiatives.

This business structure was necessary when ICD was created nearly 100 years ago due to distance and communication limitations. In recent years however ICD has been slow to modernize and reluctant to reorganize. During the past year the College Office staff evaluated the systems used to manage the ICD. We made sure the best technology is being used. College Office operating systems were divided into three categories Administrative Informational and External Support services. Several systems were either reorganized or replaced using newer technologies. Use of unreliable onsite hardware was discontinued. Historical office records are now kept in an online cloud-based storage. The unique structure of ICD contributes to its global success by demonstrating our commitment to international goodwill. The willingness of local volunteers to perform ICD management tasks is remarkable and is appreciated. However it is important for all ICD leaders to understand that ours is a business model that requires each of us to do our part very well in order for the College to succeed. the FDI Annual Congress in Poznan Poland. An ICD event is now being planned for ICD Fellows and invited guests. Extending the Reach To raise and distribute charitable funds is most often thought about strictly for the humanitarian results. However the ability to provide financial support for altruistic and educational purposes while establishing the College around the world adds an important dimension to our success. In this manner the ICD Global Visionary Fund which was created two years ago has already become an essential aspect of international ICD development. The world welcomes an organization like ICD if it acknowledges local needs and is willing and able to lend a hand. Managing the College It Gets Complicated From an organizational and administrative aspect the worldwide structure of the International College of Dentists is unique among international dental associations. The International Council gives wide latitude to each of the 14 Sections chartered by the Council around the world to manage their own affairs. This self-determination is ICDs most defining characteristic. The College Office in Michigan USA maintains management systems to coordinate the professional and business matters of the College worldwide and to implement the policies determined by the Council. Another equally complex responsibility of the College Office is the more direct management and guidance of an additional 20 Regions worldwide which represent Fellows of smaller nations. While the diversity of ICD Fellows globally is something we are very proud of the multiplicity of languages currencies and cultural practices present serious challenges for the College in maintaining good business practices and professional unity. Most Sections and Regions rely on volunteers to do the best they can with difficult tasks such as dues collection and updating membership information. Sections and Regions vary around the COLLEGE OFFICE STAFF meeting at the College Ofce in Flint Mich. USA.

My oldest cousin had gone to dental school a few years before me because his father was a dental technician and had encouraged him to become a dentist. When it came to my turn my parents said I should try to emulate my intelligent cousin and at the tender age of 17 that is what I did After qualification I worked in the dental school doing jobs in various hospital departments and initially wanted to be a prosthodontist. However later on I saw the light and became a periodontist. InitiallyIworkedingeneralpracticeandafterafewyearswent to live and work in Trinidad in the West Indies. Before I left my sunshine life in the Caribbean I applied to study at the Eastman Dental Center University of Rochester USA. I was lucky enough to get an International Fellowship there and enjoyed my time in Rochester enormously. I went on to study at the University of Wales Cardiff in the department of Periodontology and later joined the staff. In Cardiff I supervised a number of masters and Ph.D. students and went on to supervise a doctoral postgraduate at the University of Surrey. How does it feel to become College President Its obviously a great honor to become International President and one that I never thought I would achieve. I think the important issue here is the commitment you have for the College. Ever since I was inducted as a Fellow in 1995 I have felt very close to the core values that we aspire to and the great warmth and collegiality that the College engenders. I now feel that I have friends all over the world friends with different languages and from different cultures but still united by our profession. It is truly impressive to see firsthand the warmth and commitment that the executive of the College demonstrates not to mention the amount of time that it gives to College matters. What challenges is the College facing Where to start The first issue is College governance. ICD governance was first established some 90 years ago the travel distance and means of communication influenced the present ICD governance design. It is understandable that existing administrative entities were adopted. Today in keeping with the times and electronic methods of communication and to ensure a better future it is reasonable that the College reviews its global structure and operations. The governance of the ICD should reflect the responsibility and character of a 21st century worldwide organization. The College executive and ultimately the International Council is in the process of making changes to governance structures which we look forward to sharing with you. A perennial problem is the question of growth. When I was at the USA Section Board of Regents meeting in Washington D.C. I learned they have a district structure where there is a Regent and Vice Regent supported by a number of Deputy Regents distributed geographically who help to drive the membership numbers. I think this is an excellent way of increasing the number of new inductees. I have also introduced the Fellow Gets Fellow FGF idea that comes from marketing strategies and I challenge all Fellows to recognize and nominate people like themselves who they feel are deserving of the honor of fellowship. We need to increase our numbers but without dropping our high standards. There is a very active membership committee which I am confident will be successful in not only breaking down the barriers to fellowship but also driving up membership numbers this year. Sponsorship is another issue. I have appointed a task force this year to look at our Diamond Sponsor program in terms of finding new sponsors and new categories of sponsorship.

I enjoyed my time as Regent for England Scotland and Wales and was honored to be European President in 2007. Finally my Fellow Inspires Fellow FIF challenge to get sponsorship for the GVF was a first for the College and myself. Sailing the Atlantic Ocean for me was a real achievement and one that has earned more funds for the GVF. My hope is that other Fellows will plan their own challenges so that we can support them How do you deal with family committments Luckily I am now retired and have the time to spend on the College I am in awe of my predecessors who have continued to run their practices whilst being College President. My wife Sheila continues to work full time as a consultant physician in Occupational and Aviation medicine but will still accompany me on most of my visits. We still try to see as much of our friends and family as possible and maximize our time on the ski slopes and on our beloved yacht Amberjack. What is your vision for the ICD Jonathan Swift said Vision is the art of seeing the invisible but for me I see an organization that leads the world in educational and humanitarian aid a College that appeals to every dentist of substance and an ICD that has governance structures that are the envy of other international societies. I want every one of you to be a part of that dream as I wave the flag for the truly international virtues of our beloved College is a paucity of funds to literally run the College from its base in Michigan USA and we need to improve this situation in order to be able to carry out our need for increased staff and our College communications. Sponsorship of the Global Visionary Fund GVF has just been given a huge boost in the form of a grant from the International Congress of Oral Implantologists ICOI for US 200000 on behalf of one of its founders Dr. Carl Misch and is called the Misch Legacy Endowment MLE. This fund aims to achieve the sum of one million US dollars by further donations from graduates of the Misch Institute and members of the ICOI. Moreover I am pleased to say that the Henry Schein grant for materials and equipment is being used appropriately and continues to help people in low and middle-income countries. What are your best accomplishments in the ICD I was pleased to start the Diamond Sponsor program but now feel that it should be taken to a new level with different stages of sponsorship. I am also proud to be GVF Chair and I believe it will be extremely important for the future of the College as we strive to be known as the Go To people for educational and humanitarian aid. I am also happy to be at the helm to deal with the College governance structures and to travel the world as an evangelist for the ICD. I am certain that every President has this same aim and only a limited period to make a difference. I was recently in South Africa to conduct an induction ceremony in Cape Town. We are delighted to support the ...I see an organization that leads the world in educational and humanitarian aid a College that appeals to every dentist of substance and an ICD that has governance structures that are the envy of other international societies. 1 5Journal of the International College of Dentists was allotted for expanded discussions at Council and committee meetings including the highly valued opportunity of having all 2016 committee members meet and discuss their tasks with their Chairs prior to leaving Dublin. Committee on Membership Established The establishment of a new Standing Committee on Membership along with the passage of recommendations will empower the College to move forward towards the goals of increased membership value and growth. Residency was removed as a prerequisite requirement to nominate a candidate as long as the Section where the candidate works or lives provides assurances of the candidates Good Standing by the local dental authorities. The age requirement previously set at 30 years of age was also eliminated.

Core Values Replace Goals and Objectives The objectives goals and core values were officially coalesced and rewritten into the Constitution under the umbrella of five Core Values for ease of developing universal understanding and communicating the principles and values of the College. Also the expression honorary dental society is now replaced by honor society for dentists. This approved change has been incorporated into our trademarked tag line to now read The worlds oldest and largest honor society for dentists. The Sections are asked to adopt these changes in all their publications and communications as soon as possible to promote consistency throughout all ICD communications worldwide.

In a meeting with the local authorities GK and the mayor of Talisay Dr. Eric M. Saratan signed an agreement that obliges both parties to mutual cooperation. The authorities will send voluntary dentists to work at the dental clinic and the ICD guarantees the cost-free supply of all necessary dental equipment and materials. On that occasion the introduction of GKs educational dental hygiene program at other schools in the area was discussed to be implemented in the future the same as in GK Hope Village. The recent cooperation with the Philippine Dental Association which contributed greatly to the success of the events to mark the annual dental health day represents another possibility to involve motivated external dentists in the project. Prophylaxis and oral hygiene are central elements of the GK Hope Village Dental Clinic Project. Therefore it is not enough to provide free dental services to the inhabitants of GK Hope Village but there has to be continuous training of the local teachers as their knowledge and commitment is essential in order to change the students perspectives on personal oral and dental hygiene as well as on dental visits. The children at GK learn about these issues in the most playful manner through role-play at the dental clinic they can take on the role of the dentist the patient or the assistant. Furthermore the children receive a range of hygiene products and practice brushing their teeth with their teachers. The message is not only preventive but designed to alleviate the childrens unfounded fear of dental treatment and to make dental care as well as regular visits to a dentist an integral part of their daily life. The hygiene corner helps the children put their newly- acquired knowledge into practice more easily. Thereby the educational effect and in turn the intended change in thinking are supported. The newly dedicated hygiene corner makes a tremendous contribution to the general dental and oral health care of the children living in GK Hope Village. This is because the opportunities for dental hygiene at home are very limited as they are missing the most necessary hygienic articles and appropriate sanitary equipment. The necessary facilities and oral care products can now be found in the newly-built hygiene corner which includes four washbowls is directly connected to the dental clinic and is accessible for everybody 247. able to count on the generous support of ICD Europe D AGE OF HOPE AND SUCCESS IN GK HYGIENE CORNER Fellow Hani Farr cuts the ribbon to the newly-built hygiene corner of GK Hope Village.

This parallel raises our own levels of knowledge and improves practical skills and theoretical knowledge about dentistry. The program provides free dental medical treatment for children and orphans. By this way many of them have regained a beautiful smile.

The dental project which receives contributions from ICD Section II Canada has set up a daily school toothbrushing program under guidance from local dental partners in Nepal. Through financial aid and provision of volunteer dental teams from Australia the project also supports the delivery of clinical dental care to the Bhattedande School villagers and remote communities in the area. Despite breakdowns in communication infrastructure news came through that while nearly all the houses in Bhattedande Village had been destroyed mercifully there had been no loss of life. All the toilets built in our sanitation project survived the shakings. Sadly nearly 9000 people died in Nepal and many more were seriously injured. It is estimated that almost 2 million people lost their homes. FOCUS ON EMERGENCY RELEIF ThevisitdidproceedinMayhoweverdentalplanswereabandoned and our teams focussed on emergency relief work.

These work projects have provided unique work environments with dental students dentists dental assistants dental hygienists from across Canada and the USA and dental professionals of the host country. Each trip with its own memorable experiences resulted in a sense of humility and fulfillment that only comes from serving others. Kindness in Action is a humanitarian organization with over 300 volunteers working on projects in 10 countries. In a weeks time approximately 500 people are treated by the volunteers. They work hand in hand with the local community to deliver the care. This project was in Cambodia where me and my daughter Dr. Mila Zenith were part of the team. Kindness in Action has been supported by the Canadian Spence Foundation with supplies and equipment. It is deeply satisfying knowing that you have tried to help the world to be a better place - one life at a time I have developed a worldwide group of friends. Having my wife and children join me on these dental missions has been especially gratifying.

I am fortunate to follow many dedicated leaders including our 2015 President Deck Barnes who have guided this Section in implementing our core values of Integrity Leadership and Service. With the enthusiasm and commitment of the Section Board of Regents I am confident we will have a stellar year. In 2012 the USA Section embarked upon a Strategic Plan with the intention of establishing priorities goals and objectives for our future growth and success. Four years into this plan and we are fulfilling many of our goals. The Section will review our Strategic Plan in 2016 to ensure we continue moving forward. The USA Section inducted 308 new Fellows in Washington D.C. These Fellows with impressive credentials are our future. We welcome and encourage them to stay involved and Share the Honor by sponsoring other deserving candidates. Focusing on Leadership and Humanitarian efforts we encourage Fellows to mentor and introduce students to the importance of the global community. Interest in Section projects such as the International Student Experience Global Health Student Associations White Coat Ceremonies Peace Corps and Fisher House projects are growing each year. Our Humanitarian Liaison Committee presents informative seminars on volunteer opportunities in the USA and abroad. Recently the renewed excitement and organization of the College has encouraged increased cooperation and collaboration among the Sections.

To be part of our College is a synonym of excellence leadership and professional status. This can be handled responsibly when being a part of a regency committee or directive board of the different dental associations or professional groups throughout the world. With this we will make our College a stronger and more influential institution that can mark a positive difference on the development of the dental profession within the communities we serve and within its scientific development. We must be sensitive to the technological scientific and communication changes that have occurred recently. And we must read understand and apply them for the benefit of our College in order to maintain our leading position in our profession. I want to make clear to all ICD Fellows from Mexico and internationally as well as to our future Fellows that becoming an ICD Fellow is not a simple act of belonging to a dental group it is not only a medal or a prize within our professional trajectories. The obligation of an ICD Fellow is by far more important because being a Fellow of the International College of Dentists is a real honor and a particular way of being and this is what marks an enormous difference from others without this commitment. Finally on behalf of myself and the members from our Mexico Section we would like to send our best wishes for this 2016 to all our Fellows around the world as well as to our College President Dr. Phillip Dowell and the International Council of our College. Honoring a Memory It is important to start this years report with a very deep feeling of sadness and respect for the loss of one of our Masters Dr. Abraham Chisikovski Perkins. He passed away this October after being one of the pillars of our College for many years we will always remember him as a very warm and gentle person. As a great teacher and family man our Section was honored to have him as an active Fellow. The Distinguished Member Award now carries his name and will keep honoring our most distinguished Fellows after him. We had the painful loss of another distinguished Fellow who died prematurely in December. She was Dr. Martha Julieta Prez Villanueva a very active Regent of the Northwest Regency and she did an outstanding job helping the most needy persons in Baja California. She was a very recognized professional and wonderful human being. May they both rest in peace.

Brazil District The goal of this District is to be present throughout the vast country by the exchange of colleagues together with the planning of activities. During 2015 Brazil chose five prestigious odontologists to become part of the ICD. Unfortunately the difficult economic situation that this country is undergoing did not give the chance to organize the Investiture Ceremony. Due to the same reason 13 Fellows set themselves apart from the ICD in 2015 as the purchasing power in Brazil does not go along with the American dollar variation. Brazil currently has 42 active Fellows. The new Board of Directors which starts working in January 2016 was elected as follows President Halbert Villalba General Secretary Fabio Monteiro and Treasurer Ricardo Salgado. The prevention program continued as well as the diagnosis and treatment of patients who suffer from chronic kidney failure and transplant patients.

A symposium to expand your knowledge and broaden your horizons. For this we have selected a scientific program perhaps a bit unusual but in our opinion worthy of your interest. Considering we are a College of scientific cultural and professional specialties we have created a scientific day that would provide each something new and interesting. We have selected those who can help us improve not only as dentists but as human beings and professionals experts who are able to develop skills that have remained dormant. The background of this revolutionary and at the same time traditional meeting is worthy of the most beautiful and dreamed Italy of great museums and dolce vita where beauty blends with tradition and the colours have the taste of great memories and good food. It is with great fervency and joy that I hope to see you all in Italy in 2016. To be able to share with you the traditions we wanted to marry to innovation.

Journal of the International College of Dentists THE GLOBE 2016 4 4 Editor Setsuya Suzuki Presidents Greetings Kikuo Kobayashi In the existing structure of the International Council there are two Japanese directors Drs. Senda and Hashimoto who attend the annual International Council meetings to carry out their duties. The number of members in the International Council has been determined by the number of members in each Section. Nevertheless an amendment was implemented where it was decided to decrease the number of allocations for the Council. I am deeply concerned our representation will reduce to one seat in the near future due to a decrease in Fellows in Section VII. Furthermore if membership continues to decrease and we fail to reach a certain number it may possibly doom us to lose our post at the Council. However it is not a wise decision to concentrate only on membership growth in the aim of retaining the present number of seats on the Council. This will cause a decrease in the quality of members of Section VII. We should face up to this significant matter and find a solution for further prosperity.

For me its nice to be invited to join a College with those ideals but what happens then What direct what tangible and what practical action can we as Fellows participate in and observe to support the substance of the above statement My impression is that ICD may be another add-on activity somewhat down the immediate individual list of professional actions and interests of its membership a membership that has been selected for professional contribution already achieved. Most are busy and highly successful colleagues. Section VIII has healthy financial reserves but I suspect our most significant resource is the huge leadership Section VIII AUSTRALASIA www.icdsectionviii.org expertise and the commitment and understanding of our profession that exists within our collective membership. So my very real interest is how we utilize that collective resource to pass skills onto aspiring younger members of dentistry particularly to emerging leaders. In these times of increasing competition for our time the proliferation of electronic interaction the uncertainty of secure employment and the diversification of backgrounds of those entering dentistry a focus on collegiality is a good start. The Strategic Plan Over the last year the Board has drafted our five-year strategic plan through year 2020. We have focused on where we want to be stating how we plan to get there and what tangible things we can do to support the Colleges higher aspirations.

You gave me the mandate to lead and build on the solid foundation that has been laid by the respected past presidents. You made my job easier by electing other capable officers you believed will serve this association diligently and selflessly during the two-year term. I am delighted to say that so far they have lived up to your expectations. I wish to express sincere thanks to our executive officers for their commitment and dedicated services to our organization during the past year. For more than a year of leadership with more than 100 members it takes pride that our mission is being achieved as we are continuously expanding. Optimistically we will meet the target of having more than 120 active members by 2020. The leadership of each member country could greatly help by recruiting deserving members to be Fellows in order for us to meet the growth of the Section. With this growth we can implement what has been approved in the ambitious strategic plan the Council approved during their meeting in Dublin last October which focuses on the College finances public service and humanitarian projects. I would also like to commend the current officers for successfully conducting several annual meetings during our term including the recently concluded 25th Annual Meeting which gave us the opportunity to share and update the knowledge on dentistry. I must say that our finances are doing fine not to mention the up-to-date membership dues. With this we need your input and concerted efforts to turn things around for the better so that we can work towards reaching our goal one goal in mind to do whatever you can to vigorously advance the aspirations and objectives of this fellowship.

This support is very much needed by Dr. George Tawil new Section X MI DDLE EAST www.icdme.com Section Reports MI DDLE EAST Registrars Report Nadim AbouJaoude The Middle East Section is forcing its way despite the challenges it is facing in its Districts and countries. District 1 which is comprised of Lebanon Syria Jordan and Iraq is facing many difficulties due to the political situations that are reflecting all levels of daily life. Iraq with its unstable climate and Syria with its explosive situation shed their weight on Lebanon and Jordan. Refugees have overwhelmed Lebanon and Jordan to a point where there is at least one refugee for every three citizens. The amount of help needed exceeds the possibilities of the governments of the hosting countries. The consumption of food and the levels of gas electricity and petroleum which are all mainly subsidized by the government have increased. The sudden increase of the population in Lebanon and Jordan has generated more work for the infrastructure water sewers and trash which cannot be managed by the state. War injuries and medical help are flooding the hospitals and clinics and support is much needed for these unfortunate patients. The inflow of refugees took a toll on the dentists daily practices where many come seeking help. The dentists find themselves solicited by patients in need of medical and financial support let alone the competition dentists have from their displaced colleagues challenging the countrys laws for medical practice. With all these issues under consideration one would imagine the tremendous tasks laid on the Section in trying to organize activities and maintain pace at all levels. We will pursue our dream in serving the community where there are opportunities and hope for a better future.

Last June and July were difficult months in Korea with the sudden outbreak of the Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome MERS epidemic. It taught us how vulnerable we are despite the innumerable advances we have made in the medical and public health technologies. Outbreak has shed light on our weaknesses in our healthcare system in particular to emergency room practices and infection control. We also learned that patient hospital usage behaviour was one of the culprits in spreading the disease. My dental practice experienced a 60 percent decrease in patient visits during the two months of crisis but now things are better. I wish you all well. Cheers.

This was particularly important that it guaranteed the maximum number of potential audience members as it is estimated that around 20000 dental practitioners in southwest China would be attending the exhibition expo and many of them were in need of continuing education. We were also very happy the College helped in finding a well-qualified speaker to give the lecture.

Jahangir Kabir Bangladesh John V. Hinterman Registrar Registrars Report Teamwork and patience are the key ingredients resulting in the creation or revitalization of several ICD Regions during the past year. In most instances this remarkable period of College development actually started years ago by ICD Fellows who later handed the challenge over to others for eventual success. In the first quarter of 2016 four new Regions were scheduled to received their official ICD Charter install a leader as Regent and initiate new Fellows. This report is about these events and other related developments that impact the growth and development of ICD Section XX Regions. Region 29 Egypt Sudan Efforts to establish the College in Egypt were initiated in 2011 by the then International President Manfred Seidemann working in collaboration with Fellows from Section X Middle East Councilor Cedric Haddad and Registrar Nadim AbouJaoude. Their efforts were suspended while awaiting peace to return to that nation. In 2015 the International Council appointed Dr. Pankaj Patel of Kenya as the Councilor for Africa. Starting with the list of original candidates Councilor Patel has expanded the class and identified leaders. He has organized a grand inaugural Initiation Ceremony for 35 new Fellows from Alexandria and Cairo scheduled to take place in Alexandria in March of 2016. Region 27 South Africa The most recent efforts to establish the College in South Africa occurred in 2013 guided by the then International President Leon Aronson. Although there were a few ICD Fellows in South Africa establishing an operational ICD Region is another matter. These efforts were pickedup again by 2016 International President Phillip Dowell during meetings in 2015 with Professor Yusuf Osman Dean of the Dental Faculty at the University of the Western Cape. Professor Osman President Dowell and Councilor Patel have nominated a class of 15 new Fellows for initiation in Cape Town in February of 2016. President Dowell will return to South Africa to preside. The Dental Faculty will host the new Region and be the center of ongoing operations. Region 41 Bangladesh Previously joined with Pakistan and Afghanistan as ICD Region 24 Bangladesh had few Fellows and no activities. Therefore it was separated to be the new ICD Region 41 in 2015 by the International Council. With the retirement of long time Regent M.A. Soofi of Pakistan Fellow Md. Jahangir Kabir stepped forward to lead the new Region in Bangladesh. He nominated a class Regent Kabir Prof. Yusuf Osman left meets with ICD President Dowell in 2 to discuss the future of ICD South Africa. Journal of the International College of Dentists THE GLOBE 2016 6 4 Section XX REGIONS www.icd.org of 12 new Fellows for the initiation and charter ceremony in January and has created a newsletter for the Region. The 2016 International President Elect Rajesh Chandna assisted with the organization and presided over the ceremony. ICD Bangladesh will be hosted by the Pioneer Dental School as its center of future operations. Region 24 Afghanistan Pakistan A long period of ill health which resulted in the eventual retirement of Former Regent M.A. Soofi in 2014 was a time of inactivity and decline in ICD Region 24. Fellow Arshad Malik of Pakistan stepped forward to lead as Regent. Regent Malik is off to an outstanding start as a leader and activist for ICD in Pakistan and throughout Section XX Asia. Despite dire economic and civil circumstances in Pakistan he has nominated an inaugural class of more than 30 Fellows for initiation in 2016. Due to the uncertainty and disorder that presently exists in Pakistan many of these will travel to Malaysia for their ICD initiation. Considering the great challenges faced by dentists living and practicing in this part of the world Regent Maliks accomplishments deserve high praise. Region 50-at-Large The ICD Region 50-at-Large was established for Fellows who do not belong to other Sections or Regions of the College. The traditional and preferred pathway to Fellowship by entry through a Section or a Region does not always work because of circumstances faced by some qualified candidates. Region 50-at-Large may be seen as a safety net for Fellows who do not fit into the College structure elsewhere. An example would be the several immigrants from Colombia now living in other nations who were initiated as ICD Fellows in a ceremony in New York in December of 2015. Immigrants are not well known in their new country so as to be invited to Fellowship. Russia the Most Formidable Challenge of Our Time The International Council and Section V Europe are collaborating as an ICD Task Force in efforts to establish the College in Russia. Contacting both individual dentists in Russia as well as representatives of Russian dental associations the process is slow and methodical. Barriers to success include language cultural considerations and bleak economic conditions. Fellow Ljubo Marion of Slovenia and Kate Fabrikant of Geneva are well located Fellows on the team and have made important contacts. With time and patience success will come. NOTE Fellows around the world with contacts in Russia or suggestions for the Russia Task Force are asked to assist in this effort by contacting officeicd.org. ICD Asia Pacific Annual Congress and Trade Show ICD Section XX Asia Councilor Kim Chuan How believes the expansion and revitalization of the College in Asia will be facilitated by Fellows and leaders of ICD Regions in Asia collaborating on a major project the ICD Asia Pacific Annual Congress and Trade Show now in its second year. This is becoming a major event and has been officially recognized by the Malaysian Government. It featured three days of SAFETY NET FOR FELLOWS Region -at-Large may be seen as a safety net for Fellows who do not t into the College structure elsewhere. A recent example is the induction of several immigrants from Colombia. ICD Secretary General Hinterman far left with the newly-elected Colombian natives currently living in other nations during a special ceremony last December in ew ork City USA. Journal of the International College of Dentists THE GLOBE 2016 6 5 Section Reports REGIONS continuing education programming by 20 speakers ICD leadership meetings commercial displays and an ICD Initiation Ceremony for new Fellows followed by a gala dinner. It took place from March 11-13 2016 in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia. Regents from the Asian ICD Regions sent candidates to this central ceremony rather than staging their own events. ICD Fellows everywhere were urged to attend this ICD Asia Congress and will be in the future. In a separate action Councilor How and the Regents of ICD Section XX Asia Pacific have petitioned the International Council to reorganize and be granted ICD Section status. They are presently doing the due diligence required such as Bylaws and business plan developments. It is not known whether they will be successful but one thing is known for sure the College has never before seen the likes of their enthusiasm and determination as a start-up group of Fellows and volunteers. Their efforts have been effective. Dentists have sought Fellowship and lapsed Fellows have sought reinstatement in order to be part of this exciting new activity for the ICD in the Asia Pacific Regions. It Takes a Team All Fellows are asked to assist with the international growth and development of the College by providing information regarding contacts they may have with dentists who qualify for ICD fellowship elsewhere in the world. We can all be encouraged and be inspired by the stories and efforts of the ICD Fellows included in this report. You are needed by them to join the ICD team. ICD international development is coordinated through the College Office by Secretary General Jack Hinterman and College Office Manager Chelsea White. Together we can do this.

ICD Region 24 Thrives Despite Chaotic Environment Regent Arshad Malik exceeds all expectations of what is possible in an extremely challenging environment. As the ICD Regent in Pakistan since 2014 he has energetically organized ICD establishing a permanent office convening meetings organizing humanitarian projects and nominating over 30 candidates for fellowship. He is also Editor for Section XX Asia Pacific. Regent Malik is a professor of oral surgery at Punjab Medical College in Faisalabad. Regent Maliks progress does not seem possible when his 2015 annual report to the College Office described hardships faced by dentists in Region 24 The dental surgeons economic condition in the Region 24 has deteriorated due to constant terrorism by Taliban Al-Qaida and recently by ISIS in streets shopping malls and mosques and no clinic is safe especially in Afghanistan. The maximum talented dental surgeons have migrated themselves to safe places leaving their clinics and joining dental colleges at low salary or they left the country. My Fellows are very energetic and are potential assets for me and the ICD. There is another challenge for the dental profession in Region 24 there are 40000 Quacks which are untrained unregulated individuals performing dental procedures in the streets or storefronts.

ICD Iran Fellows are presently focusing on the development and expansion of the Humanitarian Committee. The second book for ICD Iran was published and distributed among Iranian dentists related health and governmental organizations and dental schools.
