INDIAN DENTAL ASSOCIATION, KERALA STATE BRANCH

Though the Indian Dental Association, at the centre was formed as early as in 1946 it took more than two decades for the formation of the Kerala State branch of the IDA. The initiative for the formation of the state branch was taken primarily by late Dr. Jacob Zechariah. An ad-hoc committee was formed in 1967 with late Dr. Jacob Zechariah as the convener and Dr. M.K.James and Dr. K. G. Nair as Members. The primary objective of the this committee was to organise the dental surgeons of the state and to form the kerala state branch of IDA. The committee held meetings at Eranakulam and Trivandrum. A constitution was prepared for the Kerala State Branch. Communications were send to all practicing dental surgeons of this state. The formal inauguration of the IDA, Kerala State Branch was conducted on, Sunday the 2nd February, 1969.
