President's message

Dear members of KAOMI,

I would like to thank you for visiting KAOMI webpage, and are very delighted to have you here. You are accessing to the webpage of KAOMI, which has about 5700 members, the largest academic association in Korean dentistry. KAOMI was established for education and academic development regarding implant as well as for democratic administration, which is a future-oriented implant association. In the meantime, we have been remarkably developed thanks to the utmost endeavor from the first and second chairmans, Soyeong Jung and Chang Bae , as well as other executive members.

We became an approved dental academy in February 2013 on our 20th anniversary. Recently, on March 2014, the executives led by Chairman Seongju Heo achieved many accomplishments under the difficult external circumstances in order to make KAOMI solid and strong. We will follow in their steps to develop further by exerting more effort.

We promise that we are going to realize the internalization of our association, which has been proceeded from the previous executives. Specifically, MOU with Osteology association, which had been pursued by Chairman Seongju Heo aims to attain successful outcome within this year.

At the end of April 2016, Professor Jeonghye Kim, Professor Gitae Koo, and director of international affairs Uiwon Jung attended International Osteology Symposium held in Monaco, and had a comprehensive discussion regarding MOU including MOU agreement with Osteology staffs.

Moreover, in March 2016, spring academic symposium proudly earned the 'international' title. We also think that issuing better quality of academic journal is considered as one of the most important duties.

Nothing is impossible if we work together. We will make the relationships with other implants associations into positive partnerships by competing and cooperating with them. As the three implant associations accredited by Dental association, it is crucial to take the constructive lead for the clinical and fundamental developments of implant in Korea.

However, we have to understand that we cannot be content with the present. We must continue to strive to improve so we won't lose our future developments. I promise not to neglect any of my duties, to work together to make KAOMI better. I want to create a KAOMI with and for the members so that we can create an ever-improving KAOMI together.

Thank you for your time.

Hwanho Yoe D.D.S., Ph.D.
President, The Korean Academy Of Oral & Maxillofacial Implantology
