The year 2014 has been an eventful year. The 14 th laser diploma module was held at Rangoonwala Dental College with participants from all over India. Different types of soft tissue lasers were made available such as Sunny/K-laser, AMD, ZOLAR etc. Furthermore, the hard tissue lasers like Fotona Fidelis, Syneron high - touch and the CO 2 laser by Union medical. The module was conducted by Prof. Moritz, Markus Laky, Christoph Kurzmann and the Indian Faculty.

The 6 th world laser dental congress was held at Beijing, China. It was a great pride for SOLA that the Indian speakers Dr. Mohan Vakade, Dr. Rajat Bhandari, Dr. Anil Shah, Dr. Naresh Thukral and I were invited as the podium speakers. 400 delegates from around 10 countries participated in the congress. The 7 th Congress will be held at Dubai in February 2016.

The masters module for lasers will be held from 17 th to 20 th December 2014 in Vienna. Also, the 15 th diploma module will be held in Pune from 26 th February to 1 st March. For those interested, please get in touch at the earliest.

I invite readers and prospective authors to work with us to continue the success of SOLA and the important contributions that I anticipate it will make to report discoveries and expand knowledge in laser dentistry. "I hope we can make it interesting…" and uphold the traditions of scientific excellence that the journal has fostered since its foundation.

Wish you a very happy year 2015!!!!
