President's Message


September 2011: Our Greatest Asset Remains Our Members.

Niklaus Lank, IAP PresidentA great deal has changed in the world since the International Academy of Periodontology was established in 1985. Our goal since inception has been to improve knowledge and disseminate information about periodontics worldwide. Today, there are more and more innovations and technologies to help us advance our mission. However, our greatest asset remains our members.

With your support, we can expand our base, continue to promote periodontology, and ultimately help improve both treatment and prevention of disease. In the past, previous IAP presidents, officers and members have given their time to lecture and organize meetings and seminars, both in developing and developed countries. An active membership is key to any organization’s success. We hope you will continue to support our efforts globally and spread the word about the benefits of membership in the International Academy of Periodontology.

We look forward to seeing you at our annual meeting! Please visit our conference section to learn more.
