Greetings and Welcome to Singapore.

On behalf of the Local Organising Committee, I would like to extend a warm welcome to all delegates and guests to the Joint 37th Annual Scientific Meeting of the IADR South-East Asia Division and the 2nd International Oral Health Symposium to be held on the 22nd - 25th November 2023. This Meeting is hosted by the Oral Health Academic Clinical Programme, Duke-NUS Medical School, and the National Dental Centre Singapore.

This year's Meeting will be the first face-to-face meeting since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. The theme for the Meeting is 'Applying Oral Research Excellence to Advocate Oral Health for All'. True advancement and innovation require a multidisciplinary approach. Hence, we are happy that this Meeting will provide a unique opportunity for oral health researchers from the IADR-SEA Division to re-connect with friends and to develop new collaborative opportunities with scientists and researchers from oral health institutes in Australia, Japan and Sweden and engineer scientists from the National Technological University.

We have lined up a series of exciting programme activities such as the Lunch and Learn with Experts, symposia, research awards, and keynote lectures that will cover the different specialties and interests within oral health. We look forward to welcoming you to Singapore to enjoy the exciting and immersive programme we have prepared!
