Dear colleagues and students. Warm greetings from the organizing committee members of 71st Indian Dental Conference, Bhubaneswar, Odisha. Bhubaneswar, the capital city of the state boasting a dream combination of being clean, modern and an educational hub, ranked number one in the run for smart cities– a city with rich culture, ancient architecture and nature at its best. Tourist places like Puri, Konark, Chilka Lake and Bhitarkanika are just one to two hours’ drive from Bhubaneswar. The Venue of the conference is Hotel Swosti Premium and Janata Maidan, Jayadev Bihar; located in the heart of the city and is well connected to the airport, railway station, bus stand and a big list of accommodating hotels. This center hosts national and international conferences regularly. A mega trade exhibition is planned with more than 180 stalls where the most recent dental products would be displayed and made available. The registration charges are kept very nominal with paid food court service for the delegates apart from the registration with hospitality facility. The conference will host enlightening scientific extravaganza sessions with international and national speakers presenting their deliberations, sharing their knowledge and innovations. It will be a great platform for the delegates to showcase and discuss their work among the peer group. Undoubtedly the capability to innovate and bring innovation successfully will be a crucial determinant of the global competitiveness in every field over the coming years, with dentistry being no exception. In addition to the rapid advances in scientific discovery and in general-purpose bio-technologies, the accelerating pace of innovation is being driven by globalization and government policies. Evidence suggests that innovative effort is on the rise as a share of economic activity. Investment in knowledge has grown more rapidly than investment in machinery and equipment. India too is transforming with encouraging projects and policies like ‘Make in India’, ‘Start up India’, ‘Skill India’ etc. In the present scenario, to excel and compete globally, the dental fraternity in India should focus on innovative research work that would head for rapid advancement of dentistry - thus our theme of 71st Indian Dental Conference is “Accelerating Innovations… Fostering Advances”.
