FDI: vision translated into action
Dr Tin Chun Wong, 26 August 2015

As we approach the opening of the 2015 Annual World Dental Congress in Bangkok I would like to take the opportunity to share some ideas on our federation’s aspirations in terms of uniting dentistry, influencing policy and providing a vision that translates into positive action on oral health in our globalized and interconnected world.

Being one of the some 200 national dental associations and specialist groups in over 130 countries that comprise FDI membership means your members are part of a vast global network of more than one million dentists and thereby automatically ‘interconnected’ with your peers worldwide - regardless of internet speed or mobile telephone coverage.
