I welcome all the participants from across the world warmly to the 50th IPS conference and extend my heartfelt thanks for making it so grand. I am honoured by hosting a large number of experts from across the world who have shared their insightful experiences post-COVID-19 pandemic, which is an eye-opener in many aspects, especially in preventive healthcare.”


Deliberating further Dr Verma added, “At one end of the spectrum the demand for avant-garde care of our consumers (patient pool) has been increasing, at the other end, our service providers have been up and coming to render exemplary services. Regular training courses and accreditations are instrumental in bridging this chasm, and the 50th Indian Prosthodontic Society (IPS) conference is one such event fulfilling this purpose. This conference is not only the celebration of our accomplishments, but it also reminds us ‘eureka moment’ that has ‘fortified Prosthodontic practice’ and each ‘road block’ that has spurred ‘an innovation and discovery’ since its inception 50 years ago. By commemorating the Golden Jubilee of IPS, we have made the recent developments in the arena of Prosthodontics public.”


The 50th Golden Jubilee Conference hosted by the Indian Prosthodontic Society has commemorated all the advancements that have benefited the field of prosthodontics and the people at large. The latest innovative methods like digital and implant dentistry have brought about a drastic transformation in the realm of dentistry. The conference has also highlighted the gold standards in the field of Prosthodontics and how we are entering into the golden era of Prosthodontics through digital prosthodontics.


Dr B C Shroff, Professor Emeritus’s oration was dedicated to demystifying the enigmas a Prosthodontist faces when operating with digital tools and software. It promises to be a trailblazer in the digital ecosystem, a spine-tingling experience for the most compelling use of the software.
