FDI 2018

FDI World Dental Congress (WDC) 2018

Wed, 05 Sep 2018 – Sat, 08 Sep 2018

The World Dental Congress is a flagship event for FDI. For over 100 years, we have been working on delivering a top-quality scientific programme and the most innovative dental exhibition for the advancement of oral health. I am therefore pleased to invite you to our 2018 World Dental Congress taking place in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

We are honoured to be hosted by our friends and colleagues from the Argentinian Dental Association (Confederación Odontológica de la República Argentina). This will be the second time we bring the congress to the Argentinian capital – 30 years since our last visit – and we look forward to making it once again the absolute meeting point for the oral health profession.
‘A passion for many, a commitment for all’ is the driving theme of the 2018 World Dental Congress. This will most definitely be reflected in the scientific programme, where we expect a remarkable turnout of international and national experts on a wide range of subjects. The dental industry will also bring the latest in technology and practices over the course of our four-day dental exhibition.
The 2018 World Dental Congress is guaranteed to provide you with a unique opportunity to meet with leaders of the oral health profession from around the globe. Events such as our World Oral Health Forum are meant to ignite the conversation on hot topics related to oral health and dentistry and are at the core of the work we do at FDI.
We look forward to seeing you in Buenos Aires next 5-8 September for the 106th edition of our World Dental Congress. Ranked as the number 1 meeting destination in the Americas by the International Congress & Conventions Association, the Argentinian capital offers an exceptional venue and makes for an exciting congress destination.
Buenos Aires itself is a vibrant city – full of leisure activities for all tastes – and an important business meeting point in Latin America. We hope that you will take the time to discover the culture during your visit and wish you an excellent congress.

FDI President
