Portuguese Dental Association Annual Congress

November 20, 2015

The Portuguese Dental Association held its annual congress from the 12 to the 13th November at Meo Arena in Lisbon. The 24th edition of PDA’s congress registered 84 lecturers, 108 posters and 10 730 participants. Expo Dentaria, which is held simultaneously with the congress, boasted 118 companies, representing a total of 390 stands.

These numbers just go to show that this year’s congress was one of the best ever in the history of PDA!

I would like to share with you some of the highlights of this events:

The venue for this year’s congress, situated near the river Tejo, made everything more pleasable:





The opening ceremony of the congress, with the presence of the former President of the Republic Jorge Sampaio, and the Minister of Health, in functions at the time, Fernando Leal da Costa.
