Abid Faqir “honoured” to commence term as new ADI President
The Association of Dental Implantology (ADI) has welcomed Abid Faqir as its new President.
Abid graduated from the Glasgow Dental School before undertaking his diploma of membership of the Faculty of Dental Surgery in Edinburgh and an MSc at Glasgow University. He gained a further diploma in Implant Dentistry from the Royal College of Edinburgh. Currently, he limits his practice to dental implantology, and he has a special interest in immediate placement and loading of implants.
Abid commented: “I am honoured and delighted to take on the role of President of the ADI. I feel that I am here at a time when the association has been growing from strength to strength, following some fantastic educational events. Craig Parker did a great job in progressing the ADI to where it is now, and I look forward to building on this further.
“For 2018, we are thrilled to have organised a Masterclass and a Focus Meeting, plus the next ADI Team Congress in 2019 is sure to be another great event. Our priority as an organisation is to engage with our members and the profession as much as possible, so we can deliver the education and support they need. Benefits such as the Members-only Facebook group are ideal for this, providing a platform for members to interact with colleagues.”
