See you in Rome in 4 Months!

See you in Rome in 4 Months!

Dear Colleagues,

The Board of Directors of the International Association of Paediatric Dentistry is pleased to invite you to attend the second Global Summit of IAPD: Care Pathways for Caries Management in Children: Global Initiative, scheduled from 11-13 November 2022 in Rome, Italy.


The purpose of this summit is to bring together leading scientists (research: Gers and clinicians) from around the globe to discuss Dental Caries Management. Traditional approaches to the treatment of dental caries have focused on repairing the consequences of the disease rather than addressing disease itself. There is now an emerging literature on optimising dental caries management. Such management strategies require identification of an individual’s caries risk, more comprehensive diagnoses, care pathways, and active surveillance to monitor possible disease progression. Preventive modalities for conservative management include placement of pit and fissure sealants, optimization of fluoride exposure, and control of the oral environment to facilitate remineralization and arrest of the caries process. These caries management strategies supplemented, when necessary, by evidence-based surgical care and advanced procedures are essential for improving care and reducing costs of the dental caries across the globe.

We invite all our National Societies and individual members and call on the industry to participate in this important scientific event, as this will be one of the few international opportunities to meet together, to exchange information, as well as to discuss and learn about the emerging dental caries management strategies.

IAPD is the Global Voice of children’s oral health and offers you the opportunity to:


Update your knowledge about dental caries management and contribute to IAPD’s goal to improve prevention and care for children who suffer from this disease.

Discuss and learn from the experts about the latest information on the research that is helping clinicians understand how to treat dental caries.

Get acquainted with the newest products for caries management.

Explore innovative restorative treatments for dental caries.


We look forward to welcoming you all to Rome in November 2022!


Jorge Castillo (IAPD President)

& Ari Kupietzky ( IAPD Secretary General)


JSPD Award


 Young researchers travelling to the IAPD Global Summit from Developing Countries (as defined by the World Bank) are invited to submit their poster presentation to be in line for the prestigious Japanese Society of Pediatric Dentistry Travel Award.

The Award is aimed at researchers in paediatric dentistry requesting to present their work and gain insight from their peers in the field. The Award will facilitate their attendance at the IAPD Global Summit Meeting and/or Biennial Congress.


Current IAPD members are eligible to apply for the Travel Award of up to 400,000 JPN that are awarded by IAPD for its IAPD Global Summit Meeting and/or Biennial Congress. Funding for the Awards comes from the fund established by the Japanese Society of Pediatric Dentistry (JSPD).

Travel awards are given based upon need, significance of the research, level of participation in the Meeting, and whether or not an individual has received an award before.

Applicants should write a letter stating how the Award would be particularly helpful to them (this is to be uploaded in the electronic submission form).

Each application should be accompanied by a short Curriculum Vitae, a copy of the abstract for poster presentation and a research essay to be submitted to the Meeting and a letter of support from a supervisor (optional). All documents can be uploaded in the electronic submission form.

Applications will be accepted up to the date of the deadline of the submission of abstracts for that Meeting.

Applicants are not eligible for another prize at the Meeting.



About Rome

Rome was called the “Eternal City” by the ancient Romans because they believed that no matter what happened in the rest of the world, the city of Rome would always remain standing. Exploring the city centre by foot surrounded by glorious monuments and colossal remains takes you back in time to the “glory that was Rome”.

With its unparalleled history, Rome is the third most visited city in Europe and the fourteenth worldwide. It attracts visitors from all over the world who are impatient to discover the city’s impressive monuments and archaeological sites; not to mention its renowned cuisine and its lively atmosphere.

When exploring the Colosseum, visitors will easily imagine how the gladiators fought for their life in the arena, cheered by the crowd. In the Circus Maximus, travelers will picture the chariots crashing into each other to be first in the race, and in the Roman Forum visualize what the Roman public life was like.
