Message of Councilor and Master Life Fellow Dr


It is with immense pleasure and a sense of profound responsibility that I welcome all the Members of the International Council, ICD Executive Officers , and Fellows of International College of Dentists Section IX Philippines to our official website.

As your Councilor and Master Life Fellow, I am deeply committed to fostering a spirit of collaboration, innovation, and excellence within our esteemed Section. Together, we form a vibrant community of dental professionals united by our passion for advancing the highest standards of patient care, ethical practice, professional integrity and dedication to the continued progress of dentistry for the benefit of humankind.

Within Section IX, we have the unique opportunity to leverage our collective expertise and diverse perspectives to address the unique challenges and opportunities facing our region. Through collaboration, knowledge-sharing, and meaningful engagement, we can work together to elevate the practice of dentistry and positively impact oral health outcomes for our communities as we live up to our motto of “ Recognizing Service as well as the Opportunity to serve”.

I invite each and every one of you to take advantage of our website and actively participate in our Section's activities, initiatives, and events. Your involvement is crucial to the success of our shared mission and the advancement of our profession. Our website would also give us a better opportunity to be connected to other sections of the ICD and hopefully have collaborative programs with them.

Together, let us uphold the core values of the International College of Dentists – leadership, recognition, humanitarianism and education – as we strive to make a meaningful difference in the lives of our patients and communities.

Thank you for your dedication, passion, and commitment to service and excellence. I am honored to serve as your International Councilor and look forward to our collective achievements in the days ahead.
