President's Message


Col Iffat Batool Syed

President, PAO



I am immensely grateful to my peers for entrusting me with this year’s presidentship of the Pakistan Association of Orthodontists. I firmly believe that there is no stronger empowerment than educational empowerment and this stands as our primary objective for the term 2017. Education not only means simply acquiring knowledge. Rather it involves the acquisition of knowledge, skills and building character on moral and ethical grounds.

It is my vision to provide professionals in the field of dentistry, especially orthodontics, with a dynamic forum where they can exchange innovative ideas and unique experiences through effective liaison with international and national dental community. I am extremely proud of my fellow orthodontists all around the country for their continued professional efforts and accomplishments which are at par with the latest international trends. This platform will simultaneously offer a learning opportunity to aspiring dentists, particularly those in the field of orthodontics, in order to maintain an adequate level of professional competence.

It gives me immense pleasure to see the enthusiasm and dedication of my fellow elected members, to bring forth numerous academic and clinical activities this year, in the best interest of dental and orthodontic professionals. Having drafted a series of optimistic plans for this calendar year, I anticipate exceptional commitment and contribution from the dental fraternity in making Pakistan Association of Orthodontists a progressive and flourishing organization.
