APDC - Smile - The Asia Pacific Dental Congress is coming to Dubai

Dentists and allied dental professionals from Asia Pacific, the Middle East and North Africa to gather in Dubai with an aim to raising the standards of dentistry around the world.

The 36th Asia Pacific Dental Congress - better known as APDC 2014 - to be held on June 17-19 at the Dubai World Trade Center offers participants an invaluable opportunity to stay current on the latest scientific and technological research and developments through meetings and discussions with the leading experts in the dental profession.

“The commitment of the congress to offer high-quality continued dental education at an affordable cost is unequivocal,” says APDC 2014 Chairperson Dr Aisha Sultan Alsuwaidi. “Keynote speakers have been invited to share their knowledge and expertise in the various fields of dentistry and, in addition to the scientific program, an international trade exhibition will showcase the latest trends and technologies in the dental sciences”.

Dr Oliver Hennedige, Secretary General of the Asia Pacific Dental Federation, adds that, “for three days, participants will attend scientific sessions on implant dentistry, aesthetics, orthodontics, endodontics, periodontics and the other dental disciplines during which clinical cases from each field will be presented. This interactive communication will be followed by a cross-examination that allows objective evaluation from attendees. Now that the practice of dentistry has achieved the attention it deserves as a vital part of the total well-being of an individual, ‘Improving Quality of Life through Better Dental Care’ is an appropriate theme for the event”.

The massive Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Center complex of meeting and exhibition space, hotels and boutiques, is strategically located between new and old Dubai, a combination of traditional and historical souks, vibrant local shops and an old residential area on one side, and skyrocketing hotels and commercial towers on the other.

As Dr Alsuwaidi notes, “this is the first time since its inception in 1955 that the Asia Pacific Dental Federation is holding its annual congress in the Middle East, and Dubai is all geared up to make the event a memorable one”. For many participants, this will be their first trip to the Middle East, and the congress presents a rare opportunity for dental practitioners to not only stay on the cutting edge of their field, but to spend a few days in one of the world’s cutting-edge business and leisure centers as well.

APDC 2014 is organized by the Asia Pacific Dental Federation, United Arab Emirates Ministry of Health, Emirates Medical Association and Emirates Dental Society.

About the Asia Pacific Dental Federation

The Asia Pacific Dental Federation was established in 1955 in Japan with just eight countries and a handful of American military dentists who were observing. In 1967, the Federation Dentaire Internationale recognized the federation as the official organization in Asia.

Today, APDF has grown in membership to 27 countries, and is actively working toward its goal of increasing public awareness of oral and dental health and raising the level of prevention and treatment of oral diseases in Asia Pacific.

APDF’s congresses were not an annual event at first, but as members demanded that congresses be hosted in their individual countries, they began to be held each year, and today member countries have to bid several years in advance to host the event.
