The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.

-Vince Lombardi

Dear Laser Dentists,

Greetings and best wishes.

The display platform of laser dental work was released in the form of "SOLAZE" magazine in May 2007. With so many years of hard work, we took SOLAZE to its new height of success "Journal of Dental Lasers (JDL)" and our next goal to success being indexing of the same on which the team is already working. As a member and editor for many years, I have witnessed the society's steady growth, thanks to the efforts of all its previous leaders and highly enthusiastic members. I would like to express my recognition for the excellent work and tireless efforts of our team.

Now, I have an additional duty to perform that is as a President of SOLA. I have taken this charge from Dr. Anil Shah who was instrumental in shaping SOLA. It was also the unanimous decision and the blessing of our Founder President Dr. Naresh Thulkral, which made me become the president. Finally, the support from you all will make me do justice to the job I have taken.

I would like to invite your colleagues to step in the laser dentistry world by participating in the 14th diploma module to be held at Rangoonwala Dental College, Pune on August 28th, 29th, 30th, and 31st, 2014. I am sure they will be motivated from your wonderful experience with lasers.

In summary, past years have been a great time of continued growth for our organization, and we continue to be well-positioned for national and international impact on many fronts not only because of the fantastic leadership we have within the organization, but because of the many SOLA members who continue to elevate the field through scientific contributions. Awaiting your write-ups for the biggest boom in laser dentistry - "JDL…"

We gladly solicit your valuable contributions and continued support, and I am confident you will take this journal to new heights with a wider coverage and information.
