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!
Sumptuous interior of the XVIII century Palace Foz, revivalist style located at Lisbon downtown.
From left to right, Paulo Ribeiro de Melo (former secretary general and member of the new General Council), Luís Filipe Correia (president of Ethics Council), Orlando Monteiro da Silva (President/bastonário), Fernando Araújo (secretary of State Assistant and of Health), João Caramês (president of the General Assembly) e Ana Cristina Mano Azul (president of the Fiscal Council).
The ceremony took place in Lisbon. Was attended by numerous representatives from the Portuguese profissional associations and politicians like Teresa Caeiro, vice president of the Portuguese Parliament, Carlos César, leader of the Socialist Group at the Parliament (Government party), and António Correia de Campos, former Ministry of Health, among other academic, professional and scientific personalities.
Congratulations. You epitomize excellent leadership. Our profession is fortunate to have you serve in this capacity.
