In Memoriam: former FDI President Dr Jean Jardiné
FDI has just learnt of the passing of former president, Dr Jean Jardiné (France). Dr Jardiné was FDI President for the period 1983-1985. His two-year mandate began at the 71st Annual World Dental Congress (AWDC) in Tokyo and came to an end at the 73rd AWDC in Belgrade.
In his message to the Belgrade congress, Dr Jardiné emphasized the relation between oral health and general health and the need to make the public health authorities aware of the significant work of the dental profession in this regard. His message remains just as important today.
FDI would like to extend its deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Dr Jardiné.
