Strengthening ties with members
Dr Tin Chun Wong, 26 June 2015

Through its member national dental associations, FDI is present in more than 130 countries around the world. One of my greatest privileges as FDI President has been to witness first-hand what that means in terms of broad cultural variety, different points of view, levels of development and capacities in health and oral health.

It is a great responsibility to communicate to members FDI’s values, actions and constant efforts in leading the world to optimal oral health. I have had over the last few months the privilege of updating our members on the latest details of FDI priorities and actions and emphasizing how FDI’s working relationship with its members is crucial for it to achieve its goals. National dental associations are, for example, key players in developing the FDI Data Hub for Global Oral Health as well as to the success of World Oral Health Day.

During the last four weeks, my visits have taken me to Suzhou (China), where I addressed the 8th annual meeting / Chinese Private Dentist Society of the China Stomatological Association (CSA). Early June, I was in the Kyrgyz Republic at the invitation of FDI member, the Kyrgyz Republic Stomatological Association, to address the national dental congress.  Later in the month, I was privileged to address the 110th anniversary of the Bulgarian Dental Association (BgDA) at the 15th BgDA Jubilee Scientific International Congress.
