See you at the ADA FDI World Dental Congress in San Francisco this 4-8 September 2019
Be a part of something extraordinary
This year, the ADA FDI World Dental Congress will strengthen ties and foster collaboration within the global oral health community. Held under the theme Be a part of something extraordinary, the 2019 Congress offers a unique opportunity to meet with leaders within the oral health profession from around the globe.
Combined, FDI and the ADA represent over one million oral health professionals in 130 countries. This year’s historic joint meeting brings together these two organizations that influence health policy, affecting billions of patients worldwide. The Opening Ceremony and General Session will spotlight how we all succeed by working together toward achieving optimal health for every human being.
To advance the art and science of dentistry, this annual event delivers a cutting-edge scientific programme and interactive forums. Here’s a snapshot of what you can expect at our Congress:
The World Oral Health Forum on Saturday, 7 September from 8:30-11:00. The subject will be Universal Health Coverage: The Good, the Bad and the Necessary for Oral Health. A set of international speakers will debate the evidence, strategies, and solutions that are essential to stop governments from neglecting and marginalizing oral health and provide a roadmap for making optimal oral health a global aspiration and an essential component of universal and primary health packages.
Don’t miss our Hot-Topic Sessions:
- COURSE 5169 Hot Topic Session: Latest Clinical Approaches on Pediatrics focused on the global epidemic of early childhood caries (ECC) and innovative ways to prevent ECC and promote children’s oral health.
- COURSE 6170 Hot Topic Session: Using High Technology Tools and Materials in our Daily Practice will delve into the advantages and disadvantages of using high technology tools and materials in the daily dental practice.
The Congress also offers a dental exhibition attended by the most prominent figures in the dental industry.
The dental profession and the dental industry are essential partners in delivering oral health to populations around the world. Bridging the gap between the two is even more important today, as new materials and technology are developed to accommodate the latest treatment philosophies.
As they tour the exhibition hall, attendees are also encouraged to visit the FDI booth. Here, visitors are welcome to learn more about FDI’s oral health advocacy activities and browse FDI’s recently released publications, which cover topics from improving access to endodontic care around the world to establishing a long-term care plan for partially dentate patients.
Every element is in place to deliver an event that serves to strengthen ties between oral health professionals, industry innovators and committed stakeholders to raise the voice of the oral health community and advance the practice of dentistry worldwide.
