CE Programme

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, please consider this as a tentative Global Continuing Education (CE) Programme schedule.

Development through continuing education is an essential part of the dental profession. It is an important aspect of modern evidence-based dental practice. Furthermore, it is essential that dentists maintain an up-to-date clinical and theoretical knowledge of the art and science of dentistry.

To this end, FDI's Education Committee organizes a number of events to support this requisite every year. These events are categorized by geographical region and compiled into a Global Continuing Education Programme listed below.
