ABOUT THE SPEAKER: DR. ALI TUNKIWALA
A graduate of the University of Mumbai, College of Dentistry, Dr. Ali Tunkiwala completed his Bachelor’s degree from the renowned Nair Hospital Dental College and his Master’s Degree in Prosthetic Dentistry from the highly reputed Govt. Dental college and Hospital.
Very early in his professional life Dr. Ali realized that keeping up to date in the field of dentistry is crucial for providing patient care comparable to international standards. His quest for knowledge led him to institutions in Germany where he received his training in implant dentistry. Building up on that knowledge, he successfully completed the requirements of ICOI (International Congress of Oral Implantologists) in USA and was conferred with the Diplomate Status of ICOI in 2005.
In 2011, he successfully completed the requirements of the ISOI (Indian Society of Oral Implantology) in India and was conferred with the Fellowship Status of ISOI.
He is one of only 350 dentists in 28 years worldwide, to have received the Accredited Status by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD)
He accomplished this after completing a rigorous credentialing process including a written examination, oral examination, and the submission of clinical cases for peer-reviewed evaluation.
As a part of his initiative to get global education opportunities in India, he started an Implant Study club in India affiliated to the ITI (International Team for Implantology). This study club nurtures and guides motivated clinicians towards predictable, evidence based Implant practice.
He also started his Continuing Education venture “Impart Education, to provide a platform for dentists to learn contemporary skills in Implant and Cosmetic Dentistry.
Outside his dental practice, he loves spending time with his two wonderful daughters & enjoys his hobby of Photography.
ABOUT THE INDIAN PROSTHODONTIC SOCIETY:
In 1972 a Workshop was organized by the Dental Council of India on “Prosthodontics” under the Chairmanship of Dr. T.M. Udani, Professor and Head of the Dept. of Prosthodontics, Govt. Dental College and Hospital, Mumbai. The work was patronized by other Head of the Departments of Prosthodontics viz.,, Dr. F.D. Mirza, Nair Hospital Dental College, Mumbai and Dr. K.Bhargava, Govt. Dental College and Hospital, Ahmedabad and several other Dental Surgeons, interested in Prosthodontics were invited and participated actively in this 3 days’ workshop as per our founder member and then secretary Dr. F.D. Mirza.
The idea was first mooted to start a society of Prosthodontists in India by Dr. F.D. Mirza at an informal dinner party hosted by him at his residence and a AADHOC committee was formed comprised of Dr. T.M. Udani, Dr. F.D. Mirza and Dr. K. Bhargava. Also, it was decided to give vide publicity through newspapers to invite all the dental surgeons in India interested in Prosthetic Dentistry to attend Indian Dental Association Annual Conference to be held in Ahmedabad in 1973. In this meeting the Indian Prosthodontic Society was officially formed. The IPS constitution was framed and accepted. Three office bearers were unanimously elected by the committee which was formed in Ahmedabad. They were Dr. T.M.Udani, Founder President, Dr. F.D. Mirza, founder Secretary-cum-Treasurer and Dr.K. Bhargava as the Editor of our Journal.
The first scientific conference of IPS was held at Madras, where Dr. E.G.R. Solomon, was the dynamic force in organising the conference.
The IPS was formally registered with Charity Commissioner in 1978 and it became a registered society under Public Trust Act, Bombay. With this beginning, the IPS was given a good start. The Constitution was laid in such a way that there is harmony among members in the initial stages and all co-operated having the interest of Prosthetic Dentistry uppermost in their minds. It is heartening to know that Indian Prosthodontic Society was formed way before the European Prosthodontic Society came into existence.
The Indian Prosthodontic Society in now emerging to play a leading role in promoting total Prosthodontic Rehabilitation in the country in this new century.
