Message from our President (22 September 2014)

President2An exceptional congress
Dr Tin Chun Wong, FDI President

For FDI members and colleagues who attended the 2014 Annual World Dental Congress in New Delhi, I hope you all had a comfortable trip back. I trust you will all agree that it was, in many ways, an exceptional congress, with 19,437 participants, including several hundred onsite international registrations.

Our World Dental Parliament was particularly productive: we made a number of extremely important decisions, elected new FDI officials, councillors and committee members and moved forward in a several key areas. However, if I were asked to enumerate four or five principal absolute achievements, I would focus, first, on the adoption of the FDI 2014-2017 Strategic Plan. This will guide our work over the next few years, starting with the 2015 budget, so the level of consensus among members was most encouraging.

Second, I would cite the media launch of the FDI Data Hub for Global Oral Health, which, first reports suggest, has been well covered in major Indian and regional press; our launch partners have told us that they are equally optimistic about international coverage. We can be very proud of the Data Hub, which has broken new ground in the field of collection, collation and comparison of information on oral health and related issues, including other noncommunicable diseases.
