Thanks to perfect organization and logistics, FDI’s Poznan congress lived up to our high expectations and turned out to be a watershed moment for world dentistry. It established international consensus on how to define oral health, which has serious implications for FDI’s vision of ‘Leading the world to optimal oral health’.
The FDI congress also saw the launch of a White Paper on the management of dental caries, the Oral Health Observatory mobile app and, above all, the World Oral Health Day (WOHD) 2017 campaign ‘Live Mouth Smart’. We expect WOHD17 to broaden and deepen the message on oral function and oral health to an even wider public.
