Santiago, Chile: January 2, 2010
Thank you for the honor of serving, during the year 2010, as President of our International College of Dentists and its Fellows. Your trust, dear colleagues, is very stimulating.
The International College of Dentists-at-large and I wish each of you all the very best for 2010. May this New Year bring you and your Families abundant Health, Happiness, Prosperity, Peace, and Personal Satisfaction.
Starting yesterday, our International College of Dentists has a renovated and independent Central Office. The newly restructured Secretariat will be able to optimize support for the Fellows and our College’s global mission. May this new chapter in our distinguished history be marked by positivism, stability and outstanding progress.
2010 holds numerous significant challenges for our College. There are those inherent to the present turbulent times as well as those we have chosen to face. We, the I.C.D. Fellows, have accepted the responsibility to take our College into new professional spheres and to greater heights. With our characteristic enthusiasm, hard work and ingenuity we can certainly achieve, and even surpass, our objectives.
To facilitate our endeavors, let us join together as never before. Let us form today an I.C.D. Fellowship Team to move our College forward and to accomplish its goals. This is vital to strengthening our College and fortifying is global position.
Looking forward to serving with you on the International College of Dentists Fellowship Team, I remain,
With warmest fraternal regards and best wishes,
Manfred Seidemann Fellow, Chile ICD District (Section IV-South America) International President
