Together with FDI, our priority is to foster an environment for attendees to advance their professional and personal goals to strengthen the global oral health community as a whole. The WDC is a flagship event for FDI, strengthening ties and fostering collaboration within the global oral health community.

To advance the art and science of dentistry, this annual event delivers a cutting-edge scientific programme, interactive forums, and a dental exhibition attended by the most prominent figures in the dental industry. The dental profession and the dental industry are essential partners in delivering oral health to populations around the world. Bridging the gap between the two is even more important today, as new materials and technology are developed to accommodate the latest treatment philosophies.

The dental exhibition offers an important opportunity for international manufacturers to enhance their visibility in the Asian dental market. Every element is in place to deliver an event that serves to strengthen ties between oral health professionals, industry innovators and committed stakeholders to raise the voice of the oral health community and advance the practice of dentistry worldwide.

With these challenges come some difficult decisions, yet our focus must always remain on uniting for the health of our communities. We would like to extend our gratitude to the Chinese Stomatological Association CSAwith whom we were co-organizing this meeting, for their support and understanding at this difficult time. We will work together with the CSA to reschedule this congress in a future year and look forward to making this a joint success. This decision to cancel the congress was not taken lightly, but was considered necessary, as the world will still be recovering from the COVID pandemic and countries will be at different stages in the management of this disease.

The focus must, therefore, remain on the people and the patients and ensuring they get the best care possible, with the least disruption. In addition, a lot of your planned activities may have been postponed, delayed or cancelled during this period. You will, therefore, need to refocus your attentions and prioritize your efforts, which is both understandable and appropriate.

In the coming weeks, we will contact our members separately with specific information on how the congress cancellation will affect the World Dental Parliament meetings. We wish you and your families well and hope you and your loved ones are in the best possible health.
