Working Groups

Working Groups are established by Council to focus on issues which are not covered by the Standing Committees.

Dental Ethics Working Group

The Dental Ethics Working Group was formed to support the development and promotion of the FDI Dental Ethics Manual. The Manual is the result of FDI's involvement and active promotion of dental ethics over the years. It is a textbook, for both graduate and post-graduate dental students, which emphasizes the importance of professional ethics as an integral part of the dental education curriculum. The Working Group is responsible for the revisions and update of the second edition of the Manual, to be released in 2018.

Quality in Dentistry Working Group

The Quality in Dentistry Working Group was formed in response to FDI’s decision to initiate and lead the discussion on this nascent topic, recognizing that there are many ways to define ‘quality in dentistry’ around the world. To unite the dental profession around a common understanding of this term, the Working Group produced a definition and conceptual framework for quality in dentistry. The Working Group also drafted an FDI Policy Statement on quality in dentistry, which was adopted by the General Assembly at the 2017 World Dental Congress.
