This year the annual congress of the ECG is very fortunate to partner with the biggest event in Gerodontology in the world, the 3rd International Gerodontology Symposium (IGS). The congress theme, “Gerodontology: My new field of work” has been aptly chosen to highlight the evolving need for geriatric training to help accommodate the growing numbers of older adults in the society. This collaborative symposium will amalgamate different schools of philosophies and expertise in field of geriatric dentistry under one event. It will be a great treat for all the budding gerodontologists and young practitioners. I am very happy to be part of this unique experience and look forward to the symposium.

On behalf of JSG, I commend ECG for its outstanding achievements and congratulate the 3rd International Gerodontology Symposium Bern. And thank you for JSG's cooperation in this event. ECG and JSG have a strong partnership for several years. The trend of aging in the world never stops, and the role of Gerodontology is becoming more and more important. I think that much evidence will continue to be produced and our role will become clearer and clearer. I would like to cooperate and fulfil that role.
