The theme for the 2nd JCSM was “Modern Dentistry for Our Elderly Patients.” The theme was most apt for several reasons. Firstly, all the three Colleges were based in places where the aged population is increasing. It was also a good platform for the exchange of views and learning from our counterparts how various dental clinical and professional issues of elderly patients are handled especially as our population becomes increasing elderly and the expectations for good health in our latter years keep rising.
