Greeting from the president
- Welcome to the Korean Dental Association.
- The Korean Dental Association (KDA) will commemorate its centennial anniversary in 2025. With the motto “Dentists alongside the Korean People, and the Korean Dental Association alongside dentists,” the KDA has played a pivotal role in advancing oral health in Korea. It has also been instrumental in formulating and enhancing various policies to guarantee top-notch dental services to the public.
- As Korea transitions into a super-aged society, the significance of oral health among older people cannot be overstated. Recognizing this, the KDA has taken proactive measures to address the issue. By including dentures and dental implants in the insurance policy, the association aims to alleviate the financial burden on society while enhancing the quality of life for older people.
- Furthermore, the KDA actively engages in volunteer medical services for medically underserved areas and vulnerable populations. In natural disasters like earthquakes, forest fires, storms, and floods, we promptly dispatch supplies, staff, and a mobile dental van to affected regions. These social contribution activities undertaken by the KDA aim to foster society’s overall well-being and progress.
- I envision this website as a space where dentists and the Korean community come together to exchange ideas and engage in meaningful discussions regarding policies and initiatives related to the KDA. It is my hope that through this platform, we can collectively explore and discover more effective solutions for the betterment of our community.
