I would like to highlight the conference Dental Medicine in Europe . Aspects of the oral health system from different European realities were shared and debated with the audience.

It is always a huge effort to yearly launch such a congress, given that the Organizing Committee is only composed of volunteers. At the end an enormous pride fills us with a feeling of mission accomplished in contributing to the continuing of education of the oral health team in Portugal.
