President Pranab Mukherjee receives first copies of two dentistry books at Rashtrapati Bhavan
The President of India, Pranab Mukherjee, while receiving the first copies of two books on dentistry on May 29, said in an official release that it was heartening to know that due to efforts of the dental fraternity,'dentistry as a whole had grown by leaps and bounds over the past few decades and dental awareness has started spreading across India'.

The books titled 'Color Atlas of Oral implants' and 'Conservative Dentistry – Basics' were received by the President at Rashtrapati Bhavan.  The President congratulated the authors of both the books - Dr Praful Bali, Dr Lanka Mahesh, Dr Dildeep Bali and Dr Deepika Chandhok for their efforts.

Mukherjee brought forth the fact that India being a heavily populated country, despite many dentists graduating every year, there is still a dearth of health care professionals and dental surgeons.

In rural India, the local population lacks basic knowledge on dental cases and thus indulge in habits and practices, harmful for oral health. Unless citizens enjoy good health, their productive potential cannot be realised fully and this puts pressure on us to provide good dental care where it is most needed, stated the release.

He was of the view that the latest dental technology had improved all aspects such as diagnosis, patient comfort, dental care and prognosis.

Mukherjee hoped that the two books he had received from the authors today would be helpful for dental students, fresh dentists and experienced ones alike.
