SLAOMS President’s Message

Dr Sharika Gunathilaka

President, Sri Lanka Association of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons

Oral and Maxillo-Facial Surgery is a recently developed speciality which has roots in Dentistry. It is growing rapidly giving many branches, leading to several sub specialties. With the development of science and technology this specialty is advancing rapidly.

I am glad to be an OMF Surgeon which enables me to serve some of the suffering human beings immensely. Though the number of OMF Surgeons is few in our country, their enthusiasm and dedication is massive and a large number of patients with diseases in maxillofacial region are benefited a lot.

As the president of the SLAOMF, my intention is to further enhance the well being of both the profession as well as the patients. To achieve that purpose we are organising many events and workshops throughout the year. I greatly value the support of my council, professional colleagues and all the other supporters and the well wishers; in that endeavor.
