World Dental Congress at IFEMA

 FDI World Dental Congress
Madrid will host the 105th edition of the FDI World Dental Congress from 29 August to 1 September
Madrid is getting ready to host the FDI World Dental Congress 2017 at IFEMA from 29 August to 1 September.
The FDI World Dental Congress is one of the world’s oldest international events and is held annually by one of the oldest medical organisations.


The FDI Congress is the main international meeting point for sharing policy, information and ideas about dentistry and oral health. It is also a highly reliable source of continuing education that allows dentists and other oral health professionals to stay abreast of the latest technologies, techniques and practices. It regularly offers courses in more than 30 countries. It also includes the World Oral Health Forum, which is an opportunity to debate what is happening in oral health and related matters.

This multidisciplinary congress has an exceptional scientific programme, which attracts top level national and international professionals to give talks on the latest technological advances in dentistry and oral health. It is a great opportunity for dentists wanting to up-to-date information on different fields of the profession, since this knowledge can be put into practice.

Continuous education is still an extremely important aspect of this meeting, as well as practical workshops, meetings with speakers, working lunches and visits to the trade exhibition.  

A dynamic sector
The dental industry is an essential partner for the oral health profession. Their symbiotic relationship is even more important today, due to new materials, technology and treatment philosophies.  An indicator of this dynamism are the great expectations for the meeting, which is breaking all previous records, with 1,020 Abstracts (486 Posters and 534 Oral Communications) which have been received from authors in 46 countries, far more than the number of works sent to all previous FDI conferences, which will make it the dental event of the decade.

This four-day congress will be attended by visitors and exhibitors from more than 90 countries. In addition, around 350 exhibitors and more attendees to the Congress than ever are expected (there were 12,000 at the 2016 event). Among the attendees will be experts in Odontology, Periodontics, Endodontics and Oral Surgery from all over the world.
