Statement: FDI World Dental Congress 2022 cancellation


FDI World Dental Federation (FDI) is sad to announce that the 2022 World Dental Congress (WDC) scheduled to take place in Mumbai, India from 29 September to 2 October 2022 will not take place.

Unfortunately, our member and co-host the Indian Dental Association (IDA) took the decision to withdraw from the organization of the Congress, which has resulted in the cancellation of the event. FDI does not have the time, capacity, and resources to organize the WDC independently of our member organization.

The FDI World Dental Parliament, including all business meetings, will take place in person. Further information including dates, times and venue will be shared with all concerned, in due course.

We are sorry for any disappointment this may cause and look forward to meeting again in 2023.

For any questions related to registration reimbursement, please contact the IDA events team:

For general questions about the congress, please contact Laetitia Reymond, FDI Congress Director:
