New initiatives, new opportunities
Dr Patrick Hescot, 22 June 2016

The past couple of months have been especially rich in opportunities for FDI, allowing us to: demonstrate the viability and demand for regional congresses; progress in key project areas; strengthen working relations with our key partner, the International Association for Dental Association (IADR); and reinforce the status of oral health during the World Health Assembly.

We have also wound down 'Smile Around the World' with partner Ivoclar-Vivadent. The first evaluation shows a high-level of satisfaction with the programme by both organizers and participants in Brazil and India.
