An exciting year ahead for FDI
Dr Patrick Hescot, 26 January 2017

For my first Letter of 2017, I would like to express my confidence that FDI can keep up the momentum of 2016 in all aspects of its work. We have a number of exciting campaigns, projects and events underway, which will serve to once again enhance the reputation of FDI as the go-to organization for oral health worldwide.

For our worldwide membership, I wish you the greatest success for your national plans and projects in 2017 – and remember, tell us what you have in mind. Of course, you send your reports to the Member Support and Liaison Committee and it's always a pleasure to read of your achievements. Your plans for the year ahead are, however, equally valuable to us because they give us a better idea of your future priorities and actions and how FDI could support your efforts on a global level.
