Honoring the Past, Securing the Future

In 2021, the International College of Dentists will return to its birthplace Japan to celebrate the Centennial. Nearly 100 years has seen huge expansion and tremendous progress in its major aims of helping underserved communities worldwide in achieving better oral health.

The College Core Values of Leadership, Recognizing distinguished service, Humanitarianism, Education and the Cultivation of international professional relations have been the linchpins of its very existence. Additionally, progress could not have been made without the altruism of its Fellows and sponsorship by companies demonstrating corporate social responsibility. It is bolstered by this admirable legacy that the College is providing opportunities to support the Centennial, while securing the College’s future for the next 100 years.

Corporate sponsors will be able to select from three categories in demonstrating their support for the College and Centennial. The highest-level will be Sapphire followed by Emerald and Ruby. Each level provides, according to its stature, maximum exposure, access and engagement with ICD Fellows who include dental practitioners (85% of the College) and major opinion leaders, as well as global recognition at the Centennial celebrations in Nagoya, Japan.

Using a unique and high yield platform, the corporate benefits of Centennial sponsors are individually tailored to each sponsor, after sincere discussions with ICD to determine the sponsorship level that best mirrors the interests and goals of the company. Each sponsor will be assigned a senior ICD officer as personal liaison to ensure that the intended benefits are achieved.

Of course, sponsors will immediately be heralded in all College Centennial promotions worldwide from the time of their involvement up to and especially as it relates to the Nagoya Gala Celebrations. Our sponsors will be prominently acknowledged at major dental events throughout the world, where ICD will be showcasing College achievements and appreciation for our corporate sponsors.
