Santiago, Chile, 2015: dentistry and oral health at FDI’s first Regional Congress
Dr Tin Chun Wong, FDI President

Just a month ago, I was in Santiago, Chile, to attend FDI’s first Regional Congress ‘Las Americas’ (25 to 28 March), an event that brought together some 2000 participants from the Central and South American region and beyond to discuss and debate dentistry and oral health.

My activities from 25 to 28 March included, among other things, a brief address of welcome at the Opening Ceremony, discussions with some local and regional representatives of FDI international corporate partners—I was particularly impressed with the German Pavilion, where I met the German Ambassador to Chile, HE Hans Henning Blomeyer-Bartenstein—and participation at a regional meeting attended by representatives from 14 national dental associations.
