New perspectives on oral health
Dr Patrick Hescot, 30 November 2016

My recent visits to the Japan and Germany Dental Associations left me well briefed on the priorities, activities and achievements of our member organizations and I am happy to confirm that we continue to enjoy excellent working relations. In Japan, I also addressed and participated in anniversary events with a key partner GC Corporation.

In the past few weeks, I have also held important meetings at the World Health Organization (WHO) and with the International Association for Dental Research (IADR). Furthermore, I'm pleased to report significant progress on the Oral Health Observatory (OHO) during a recent Task Team meeting.
