Welcome to Pak Association for Dental Research (PADR)

Pak Association for Dental Research was established in March 2011 to provide a platform for dental researchers to present and discuss their research work. The primary objectives of the IADR Pakistan Section are to encourage the research culture among dental community, promote the ethics, art and science of dentistry and support members to provide high quality professional oral care. In a developing country like Pakistan, dental research does not sit very high on the priorities of policy makers.

President’s Message

We initiated establishing Pak Association for Dental Research (IADR Pakistan Section) in 2010 and realized that a platform of such stature needed positive input from fresh minds. For the last 12 years, under the banner, we have organized annual conferences, seminars, workshops, and students' competitions. I always share my personal and collective opinion on strategies to develop research culture and process in Pakistan, promote PADR and link it with other sister organizations.

From this platform, there are many opportunities such as Fellowship programs, clinical research attachments, and awards, which we would like that Pakistani academicians, researchers, and post-/under-graduate students should explore. I always urge my friends, colleagues, and students to participate and present their research at the IADR forum. The purpose is to share their research, get international exposure, and collaborate at a national and international level.

I believe that the PADR, being the core research-based organization, provides a platinum opportunity for our upcoming researchers to share their valuable work through this platform nationally and globally. I aim to guide, support and energize everyone for the purpose. As a researcher, academician, and clinician, I extend my utmost efforts to anyone and everyone willing to be part of our journey. We can collaborate, cooperate, and combine our work to enhance research and practical applications. Our future depends upon our today's effort.
