Last Monday, 7th March, I met with Dr. Pedro Passos Coelho, President of the Portuguese Social Democrat Party (PSD) and leader of the opposition in Portugal.
The meeting was very fruitful. We approached oral health in general, with updated data, and in particular the current professional situation of the Portuguese dentists and the Portuguese NHS.
I also had the opportunity to introduce the FDI World Dental Federation and to give him a general vision of dentistry around the world.
The PSD President has shown a strong knowledge of the health sector, particularly in issues such as the sustainability of the Portuguese NHS I make a very positive assessment of this meeting.
