MADRID, Spain: Prof. Mahesh Verma, President of the Indian Academy of Restorative Dentistry, was presented with the second annual International Dental Manufacturers (IDM) Global Oral Health Progress Award at the FDI World Dental Congress yesterday. The award recognises Verma’s many years of service to the dental profession and valuable contributions to furthering global oral health, particularly in emerging markets.

“Dr Verma’s visionary dedication to raising the standards of oral health care in India has culminated in his long-time leadership of the widely renowned Maulana Azad Institute of Dental Sciences,” said IDM President Dr Kiyotaka Nakao. “Under his leadership, its worldwide affiliations have set a benchmark in dental education and dental care.”

The annual IDM Global Oral Health Progress Award provides a donation in the recipient’s honour to the charity of his or her choice.

Verma, who is Principal of the Maulana Azad Institute of Dental Sciences, serves in numerous global oral health positions. Among others, he is a member of the Global Child Dental Health Task Force in the UK, Chairperson of the Research Committee for Dental Sciences at the Indian Council of Medical Research, and President of the International Association for Disability and Oral Health India Chapter.

Founded in 1988 in Washington in the US, IDM is an umbrella organisation that globally represents the common interests of its member associations. Through them, IDM supports the interests of the global dental industry and trade as a whole.
