It is really an honour to be able to connect with you all through this prestigious position of Secretary of our society. We have been interacting scientifically and professionally on several occasions during our meetings, conferences, PG conventions and at the regular events conducted by our society. Through these programmes, we have crafted modalities for sustained release of knowledge for each one amongst us, right from the first year PG student to every faculty member, and I am sure everyone has benefitted out of it. Full credits to the past presidents, outgoing Secretary, office bearers, executive committee members and the members of our society.

As the Secretary of the Society, I foresee a lot of challenges ahead, especially to continue with the activities of our society on a regular basis and also to introduce newer ideas and ensure their implementation. We have quite a few of these new add-ons in our speciality, which would be communicated to you from time to time.

Our journal has seen improvement in leaps and bounds and the major share of the credit would undoubtedly go to our past Editor and members of the editorial board. They have been performing the herculean task of raising the bar of our journal throughout these years and have established it as one of the frontrunners in scientific publications of our country. I am sure the new incumbent Editor will leave no stone unturned in augmenting the efforts and imparting further improvements.

We always have differences of opinion amongst ourselves, as a democratic society but when we are able to overcome them in mutual agreement and in the right spirit, it truly reflects our urge to work in unison to achieve excellence in our profession through this speciality organisation.

Our activities in the near future are the post graduate convention at Jaipur, National Conference in Khammam. Telangana, and many more are lined up in the next year. I hope many of our members will be participating overwhelmingly and gaining from the renowned faculties deliberating in these events.

We seek your support, cooperation and guidance in our efforts to take the society to greater heights and help realise the aspirations of budding Oral Medicine and Radiologist of the country.
