2nd IAPD Summit, a great Success!

Thank You for Joining Us in Rome

Our 2nd IAPD Summit has been a great success, attracting over 360 delegates from 57 countries who gathered in Rome for a 3 day amazing scientific event. Apart from the exceptional program it was great to meet again after 3 years of separation due to the pandemic.

On behalf of the IAPD we wish to thank each delegate who traveled from all corners of the world and attended the Summit. In addition we extend our great appreciation to each and every one of our stakeholders, partners and sponsors.

We warmly thank the Italian Society of Paediatric Dentistry (SIOI) and especially the president Domenico Tripodi and the past president Gianmaria Ferrazzano for partnering with us to bring the 2nd Summit to Rome in such short notice!

Special gratitude goes to all our sponsors for their support in this important endeavour.

Some important conclusions of the meeting are:

We really can make a difference with our follow up work – by continuing to promote “oral health”, instead of “dental surgery”.

We are sure that in the future all children in the world will benefit from dentists that provide “health care that includes the mouth” instead of “examining and fixing teeth

Networking Meeting for IAPD National Member Societies

Speaking: Dr. Amr Moursi | AAPD President

Our second networking meeting was held on Thursday, and was attended by representatives of 35 national member societies. It was a wonderful meeting where we had a chance to discuss several topics in a friendly and cozy atmosphere.

Some of the topics discussed were:

  • SDF
  • IAPD Fellowship
  • Is Paediatric Dentistry recognized in your country? 80.6% – Yes | 19.4% – No

Several opinions were voiced and fruitful discussions followed. We hope this type of meeting is useful for our national member societies, and we reassure our members that we are always there for them.
