Policy Statements and Resolutions

One of the goals of FDI World Dental Federation is to develop and disseminate policies, standards and information related to all aspects of oral health care around the world. It does this through the publication of FDI Policy Statements; declarations that lay out the current thinking on various issues related to oral health, oral health policies and the dental profession.

FDI Policy Statements are put together through consultation, discussion and consensus amongst leading dental experts from around the world. Many statements are the result of projects carried out by the FDI Science Committee, whilst others are produced in collaboration with organizations such as the World Health Organization.
