Portuguese President

Last 21 April I was received by His Excellency, the President of the Portuguese Republic, Prof. Aníbal Cavaco Silva, at the Belém Palace, in Lisbon.

I had the opportunity, on the one hand, to introduce FDI World Dental Federation, highlighting its activities and projects, and on the other hand, I had the chance to present a set of concerns about Portuguese dentistry and oral health.

All of those items were positively welcomed by the President.

To be a dentist is also to be thirsty of new incomes and share experiences. And when this feeling begins while we are students, nothing can stop us. I remember very well my times at the university, and early a will of doing more and learn fast. That’s why it’s very easy for students to catch my attention and my support.

I met Babak Sayahpour and Artjom Meier from IADS – International Association of Dental Students, last IDS, in Cologne. They shared with me some of those feelings and the wish to involve all students around the world, believing that sharing experiences will make the difference not only as persons, but also as dentists.
