|Dear Fellows and guests,
It is a great honour and privilege to have been elected President for the European Section of the International College of Dentists in 2017, and to be able to welcome you to London for the 62nd annual conference.
Many of you may already have visited London, but there is always something new to see. From the time the city was first founded by the Romans in the 1st Century AD to the present day, it has been an exciting place to be. In 1777 Dr Samuel Johnson, a famous literary figure of his time and author of the very influential Dictionary of the English Language, said: “When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford”.
