Academy of Dentistry International

April 1, 2015


Friedrich A. Herbst, past executive director of IDM, International Dental Manufacturers, recommended me for fellowship of ADI, Academy Dentistry International. The convocation took place in Cologne, Germany at the 36th International Dental Show 14 March 2015.

“The Academy of Dentistry International is the international honor society for dentists dedicated to sharing knowledge in order to serve the dental-health needs and to improve the quality of life of people throughout the world. Through the development of fellowship and understanding, the Academy endeavors to create opportunities for service in order to assist in the establishment of a world at peace.”

Last but not least, I would like to take this opportunity to state the enormous capacity of Fred Herbst as executive director of IDM.

Fred was responsible in these last 17/18 years for projecting IDM. His executive leadership was also inspiring for me. I had an enormous pleasure in working with him for a few years.

Fred, all the best for your next endeavours!
