Dear Members, Colleagues and Friends, 

        I hope to find everyone safe and well. We are certainly living in a time with unprecedented challenges brought upon by the COVID-19 pandemic. Our society is not spared either. Over the last few years, we have been gaining momentum coming together to advance prosthodontics and foster camaraderie, but this pandemic has been a dampener to our efforts. As we slowly embrace the new normal as a country, our society is welcoming and adopting new ideas to continue with our operations and activities. 

       For the past one year, we have moved our continuing dental education (CDE) onto web-based platforms. While I foresee this to be the trend for the next few years, I am hopeful that one day we can return to physical conferences and meetings. With the ongoing travel restrictions, we have turned our focus to engage local and regional clinicians to share their knowledge and experience. Together with our dedicated EXCO members, we will continue to plan educational, engaging, and relevant events. Do stay tune for the upcoming events.

       As our society celebrates a historic 30 years, I am looking forward to leading the society into the next chapter of excellence. It is my hope that Prosthodontic Society (Singapore) continues to be the society of choice for prosthodontists and dentists interested in the field of prosthodontics, and PSS continues to stay relevant with the ever-evolving discipline of prosthodontics. I also look forward to the day where I can meet you all in person. Meanwhile, do stay in touch and stay safe.

 

Yours Sincerely,

Dr. Tan Kian Meng
