FDI at American Dental Association Annual Session Las Vegas

October 19, 2011

One say, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas…. But I’ll open an exception regarding the ADA Annual Session.

It was a great pleasure for me to accept ADA kind invitation to attend it’s Congress on behalf of FDI.

The problems of the profession are similar, at different scales, all over the world.And the answers are very often also global. FDI has a main role, as “leading the oral to optimal oral health”.
