Communicating the FDI message in the Middle-East
Dr Patrick Hescot, 25 January 2016

The beginning of 2016 is bringing into the focus the need for FDI to reinforce its presence and develop support in the Middle-East. FDI members there are in a minority and a new impetus is needed for dental societies and associations in the region to better understand the vision, role of and work of our federation.

It was with this aim that I scheduled two events in the region, one in Riyadh, one in Dubai. They have the advantage of bringing together participants both from the Middle-East itself, and from the entire Arabic-speaking region of North Africa from Egypt to the Maghreb, allowing me to consult with a wide group of FDI member and non-member national dental associations.
