President's Message

Posted April 18, 2013

Firstly, I would like to send my best greetings to all Fellows in all regions and sections of the Academy.
In 1936, the Pierre Fauchard Academy was born under the leadership of its founder, Dr. Elmer S. Best, accompanied by distinguished professionals of that time who established the main basis for the operation and development of the Academy.

Since its inception, the PFA Officers rotate annually and put forth their best ef- forts towards the focus of directives on which the Academy was founded, as well as for the development of new programs and to strengthen and increase Fellowship.

Historically, the Academy has been under the leadership of the American wing of the organization. However, Dr. Best possibly had a grander vision of the Academy as an International Honor Organization with leadership opportunities afforded to Fel- lows of other Regions as has been witnessed by Australia, Canada and France bring- ing with them their own platforms and ideas on ways to strengthen and increase Fellowship. We need to look no further than our recent 75th anniversary celebrations as proof of our international flavor.

In the course of our lives we have cycles and periods, and now by the circum- stance of fate the leadership of the Academy is in the hands of a president from another country, belonging to Latin America...Mexico. During this new era under my responsibility, we have a new team consisting of our new Executive Director Ms. Loralie Lowder with whom we have moved the central office to Logan, Utah, USA; a new Dental World Editor, Dr. Fiona Collins; and a new professional company in charge of handling our website, a communication tool of vital importance in the life of our beloved Academy. I give the warmest of welcomes to the newest members of our family and I express my sincerest hope for future success.

To each of my predecessors who have devoted the best portion of their lives and given their unselfish effort to our Academy, my deep heartfelt appreciation goes to you.

—Dr. ErnEsto AcuñA

President of the Pierre Fauchard Academy
