Thottanai thoorum manar keni mandarukku kattranai thoorum arivu" says Thiruvalluar in his epical Thirukural which means.

The more deeper you dig the soil, the more water you will get.

Similarly the more you read, the more knowledgeable you will become.

As the President of IACDE, it gives me immense pleasure to reach all the members through our esteemed journal. I would like to thank everyone for bestowing this honour on me and I assure to work to the best of abilities in making our association reach new heights in the days to come. I also extend my special thanks to my teachers, past presidents, secretary and other office bearers of our association for making it what it is today. I am sure, with the blessing of the Almighty and the cooperation of my colleagues, I will be able to carry forward this legacy.

In this ever changing world, the art and science of conservative dentistry and endodontics has developed in leaps and bounds. We are in an era of ever changing phenomena and we should be ready to embrace the newer and healthier developments in our field, as in other fields of medical sciences. In this process I am sure that all the members of our association will have no second thought in accepting the fact that the way of science today is research, be it basic or applied. Research in its fullest sense can open new vistas of information that can spherehead latest developments to the fore. The current research scenario is also undergoing rapid transformation with the renewed interest in publishing and our journal has always been supportive to the young researchers. I must congratulate Dr Gopi Krishna and his team for their dedication in bringing each issue of the journal on time.

Undoubtedly India is a well developing country. However we do have miles to go in achieving the standards of healthcare as our western counterparts. We, as conservative dentists and endodontists share a responsibility - responsibility to tackle the emerging trend of dental caries and related dental disorders, responsibility to help restore and retain the smiles of our fellow countrymen and above all, hold the pride of our profession and thereby serve the humanity, upholding the ethical principles shown by predecessors and by keeping updated with the newer knowledge to face the changing challenges of today.
