IAPD Regional Meetings
Designed for Paediatric Dentists and Practitioners Dealing with Children’s Oral Health.
IAPD Regional Meetings are 2-3 day scientific events in a plenary setting and lectures are in oral presentation format with several invited speakers. These meetings can be a stand alone event or combined with a local national society meeting. It is also open for abstract submission to encourage poster presentations. We also welcome industry hands-on during the lunch breaks.
