We are delighted to announce our Conference 2023 a success.  We also have a new president and additions to our executive.  We thank outgoing president Ryan Carlton for his term and welcome in Akruti Tataria as new president.  We expect her youth and vigour will bring a fresh flavour to the NZIDT.  We look forward to her input.  We also thank outgoing Joanne Choi a great liaison with the Dental School students.  John Aarts will be a good co ordinator with the Dental School.  We also welcome Gareth McMurdo and Mustafa Mustafa.  This gives us a full executive for the first time in a while and a good spread around the country.
