History

Though the Indian Dental Association, at the centre was formed as early as in 1946 it took more than two decades for the formation of the Kerala State branch of the IDA. The initiative for the formation of the state branch was taken primarily by late Dr. Jacob Zachariah. An ad-hoc committee was formed in 1967 with late Dr. Jacob Zachariah as the convener and Dr. M.K.James and Dr. K. G. Nair as Members. The primary objective of the this committee was to organise the dental surgeons of the state and to form the kerala state branch of IDA. The committee held meetings at Eranakulam and Trivandrum. A constitution was prepared for the Kerala State Branch. Communications were send to all practicing dental surgeons of this state. The formal inauguration of the IDA, Kerala State Branch was conducted on, Sunday the 2nd February, 1969.

The inaugural ceremony was held at Indira Hall, Lisie Hospital, Ernakulam and was presided over by Sri. K.A. Damodaran, Former Minister for Industries and the state branch was formally inaugurated by the Hon'ble Minister for Health Sri. B. Willington.

The General Body meeting was held on the same day and the following office-bearers were elected unanimously.
