President’s Message – David T.W. Wong


“Seize The Day!”
(David T.W. Wong)

Good afternoon. I am David Wong, president-elect of the American Association for Dental Research and it’s my pleasure to welcome you to the 2010 joint AADR and CADR Annual Meeting. I would like to extend a special welcome to our new members and the students who are joining us this year. I hope each of you finds the next few days informative and stimulating.

There has never been a more important time for health care professionals to gather to discuss what we do and how we do it . . . because there has never been a time when health care has been so much in the forefront of our minds as individuals and as a nation. It is critical for us to ensure that we, as oral health specialists, are part of that conversation, because our research is increasingly being recognized as a key to unlocking not just oral and craniofacial diseases, but systemic issues as well. It is now abundantly clear that while oral and craniofacial abnormalities make up one piece of the body’s complex puzzle, they are in many ways, a mirror of the entire system.
