Dental World Issues

January-February 2018

From the Desk of the President Hello Everyone, Welcome to my first Presidents’ report. I am delighted to have been appointed President of the Pierre Fauchard Academy, only the second Australian to hold this office. It amazes me that a man from the Australian semi-desert bush country would be able to become a dentist (my family members were sheep pastoralists for generations), and to then be recognized as a Pierre Fauchard Academy Fellow and rise to this position. It is a pleasure to be able to serve the Academy in this way and I am really looking forward to the year ahead.
