Asia a beacon in dentistry
Addressing the opening of the 21st International Scientific Convention and Trade Exhibition, organized by the Malaysian Dental Association and an important component of FDI’s CE Programme in the region, the FDI President praised Asia as a region is in the process of becoming a beacon not only for the latest in the science of dentistry, but also for the latest in trends.
“It is indeed also heartening to see that the Asian region is in the process of becoming a beacon not only for the latest in the science of dentistry, but also for the latest in trends,” said the FDI President.
“Just recently, I attended a caries conference in Thailand, where I was able to observe that our region is now in the vanguard in areas of public policy in oral health, especially the field of oral disease prevention. Dentists in Asia are demonstrating commitment and responsibility in confronting and debating the many challenges that modern dentistry continues to face,” stressed Dr Wong.
