Professor Gies would beam at the news that the journal that he launched 100 years ago now ranks number 1 among 91 journals in the field, with a 2-year impact factor of 5.38. He would view the new JDR Clinical and Translational Research as a critical forum for showcasing translational and clinical research. Thirty-two scientific groups and networks now offer home bases and venues to showcase each discipline of the craniofacial sciences. The impact and influence of the Global Oral Health Inequalities Research Network, championed by IADR past president Professor David Williams, would assure Dr. Gies that the IADR is in a position to influence public health policies that promote oral health wellness for all (Williams 2011a, 2011b; Sgan-Cohen et al. 2013). While Professor Gies would wonder why it took 61 years to elect the first woman president, Dr. Marie Nylen in 1981, he would be thrilled that over the past 2 decades, 50% of the IADR’s presidents have been women. The Women in Science Network now offers career development and leadership training forums for women dental researchers worldwide (http://www .iadr.org/join/renew/groups/network/womeinsciencenetwork). Dr. Gies believed that dental researchers should serve as kindlers as well as keepers of the flame. He would be extremely proud of the success of the AADR’s Student Research Group and the recent launching of STAR, the IADR’s Student Research Network. The close alliances of the IADR and its corporate partners have proven essential to the success of its programs, as have the relationships with health professional organizations such as the WHO, FDI, and ISO. So, if Professor Gies were at this podium today, he would share our pride in the successes of the past century. But, without question, he would urge us to take advantage of the unprecedented golden era that we live in today. Truly, the tectonic plates of science and technology have become apposed like never before, creating a landscape of opportunity, one even more spectacular than Yellowstone Park. Vast databases derived from genomics, microbiome, environmental influences, clinical trials, social-behavioral sciences, and patientgenerated research (Hart et al. 2004; Garcia and Tabak 2009; Collins 2011; Austin 2018) are now available for translation to therapies and cures, so translate we must! The strategic leveraging of the IADR’s unique character and stature and the expansion of its influence as an organization of scientific excellence are simply critical to its future success. This overarching mission must shape each and every one of the IADR’s current and future initiatives. As we approach a new century, the need for our interdisciplinary community to lessen the global burden of humankind’s most common diseases, such as caries and periodontal disease, has never been greater. New challenges have arisen that point to the need to develop individualized treatment strategies based on personalized diagnostics, particularly for oral and pharyngeal cancers. The use of small molecule or protein replacement therapies for the reversal of craniofacial disorders and the treatment of periodontitis now provides an alternative to surgical interventions. Biologically based materials that take advantage of host tissue responses to naturally restore dental and oral tissues lost to disease and trauma need to be developed into treatments. Most important, we must translate and implement our science for the most vulnerable communities worldwide while helping drive a continuum of oral health wellness throughout life. My vision for the upcoming century is based on an accelerated trajectory of positive growth and development for both organizational arms of the IADR: the scientific groups, which are the backbone of the IADR, and the 5 regions, with divisions and sections in close geographic proximity. The IADR’s 24 scientific groups with 8 networks must revitalize the programming of research sessions along interdisciplinary themes, both classic and emergent, to better facilitate crosscutting connections. Scientific programming can also be improved by achieving a better balance between oral and poster sessions while reserving symposia for highlighting progress in the field and for engaging experts who are not members of the IADR. I can think of no better way for the IADR to enhance the quality of its membership than for scientific groups to target expert research collaborators and clinical colleagues who are not part of the IADR. Although some groups have mechanisms in place to develop a robust pipeline for the next generation of researchers, initiatives do need to grow substantially in the years to come. I envision that the next phase of regional development, equally vital for the IADR’s future success, can occur if each division engaged in strategic planning for growth based on a needs assessment and in concert with other divisions within the region. Divisions and sections are in a unique position to engage stakeholders such as deans of dental schools and other university administrators, funding agencies, as well as policy makers and legislators. Local, statewide, and national advocacy for dental research is as critical as the need to increase support for student travel fellowships, awards, and scholarships. I assure you that the IADR’s Board of Directors will work hard on behalf of each one of you to propel us forward. While plans are underway to celebrate the centennials for JDR and the IADR, the board will increase its use of social media to enhance communication with regional leadership and our global membership—and, yes, I will learn how to tweet but only sweetly! Engaging corporate partners in the IADR’s strategic planning is critical for the success of the growth of our existing and new programs. The board will continue to work closely with the WHO and FDI and other professional organizations while expanding its relationship with patient advocacy groups and foundations at the global level. Much support will be extended to the STAR program, an initiative that is dear to my heart as this will unite our international community of research trainees. An exciting new initiative is the leadership program that the IADR’s past presidents, with IADR past president Professor Stephen Challacombe at the helm, will implement shortly. This initiative will ensure that we nurture a robust pipeline of researchers who have the capacity and track records of service to lead the IADR into the future. In ensuring that advances in science and technology are transmitted to faculty and students, the IADR will be active in training the next generation of well-informed oral health professionals.In conclusion, I must say that climbing up and sliding down mountain trails as an academic researcher has taught me how The Next 100 Years 3 to lead by example, to lead from the heart, and to help provide a voice for those less fortunate than I. My ecosystem has been enriched by a number of individuals—first and foremost, my family, whose love has sustained me over the years, and an amazing group of mentors, peers, and mentees, from whom I draw much confidence and inspiration. This constellation of stars has illuminated my path and shown me the way. I feel privileged to serve as the IADR’s 95th president and the ninth female in this position. I am also proud to be the first IADR president of Indian origin who is also a first-generation US immigrant. I pledge to do my utmost best to work with you to honor the rich history and legacy of the IADR and to help launch the next 100 years—a new century of success in dental, oral, and craniofacial research that will improve wellness and health for all. Thank you all for this great honor. Come along and share this journey with me! Acknowledgments I am most grateful to the National Institute for Dental and Craniofacial Research, National Institutes of Health, for funding my research in the areas of tooth development, genetics, and tissue regeneration throughout my academic career. Most of all, I acknowledge the dental students, residents, graduate, postdoctoral trainees, and laboratory personnel for their hard work and steadfast loyalty. I am also indebted to my AADR and IADR family of colleagues, who never fail to inspire me.
