IDEM 2020 is going digital!

In consideration of the latest advisory by Singapore’s Multi-Ministry Taskforce on COVID-19 for events and gatherings on 20th March 2020, as well as the World Health Organisation’s declaration of COVID-19 as a pandemic, a difficult decision has been made to shift IDEM 2020 to an all-digital format.

We look forward to your continued support of IDEM.

SDA Office Arrangements

The health and wellbeing of our members and staff are of paramount importance to SDA.

In light of the current COVID-19 situation and upon advisories from MOM/MOH, we will be adopting the following measures with immediate effect:

1. All office staff will be split into 2 teams.
2. Teams will have alternate working arrangements from home and the office
3. Staggered working hours within the team

We endeavour to minimise interruptions to our business, but seek your understanding that our office may take a little longer to respond.

We encourage limiting of non-critical face-to-face meetings, and request for communication via emails where possible.

We are monitoring the situation closely and will continue to heed guidance from the Government to ensure that we react appropriately and in the best interests for all.

SDA 53rd Annual General Meeting

Date: Sunday, 26th April 2020
Time: 1.00pm

In view of the worsening COVID-19 situation and government directives to avoid large gatherings, SDA council has given this serious consideration and felt that it would be in the best interest of the dental fraternity to host this year’s AGM online. As this is also an election year, the elections will also be carried out via online voting managed by an independent IT provider.

We seek the kind understanding of all our members during this difficult time. Our members are spread out across a broad spectrum of both private and restructured institutions throughout Singapore and it would be best to avoid face to face contact during this critical period, to minimize cross institutional spread of disease.

The secretariat will be releasing more details in the coming days on how to attend the online meeting as well as cast your vote.
