Reelected President of the Portuguese Dental Association

On the 9th January the swearing-in ceremony of the new governing bodies of the Portuguese Dental Association, took place, in Lisbon, at Palace Foz.

I am happy to inform that the single candidate list that I submitted, was elected, by general assembly, on the 15th December 2015 for a further four year mandate, with myself as President. Under PDA’s new statutes the governing bodies now have a General Council, composed of 50 members that represent all regions throughout Portugal.

We have new challenges ahead, and new commitments and therefore will be very busy in contributing to the improvement of Oral Health Care in Portugal!
