Registrars Note Byung Kee Choi Warm greetings from Seoul. Last June and July were difficult months in Korea with the sudden outbreak of the Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome MERS epidemic. It taught us how vulnerable we are despite the innumerable advances we have made in the medical and public health technologies. Outbreak has shed light on our weaknesses in our healthcare system in particular to emergency room practices and infection control. We also learned that patient hospital usage behaviour was one of the culprits in spreading the disease. My dental practice experienced a 60 percent decrease in patient visits during the two months of crisis but now things are better. I wish you all well. Cheers. Section Reports KOREA members were able to recognize the academics relation to humanities in dentistry and the importance of communicating with the society as well as social responsibilities as dentists. Our Korean dental community saw many leaps and bounds in promoting better public oral health particular to a smoking cessation campaign. But there are many unsolved issues left for the next year. We struggle with how best to resolve dental specialty issues.
