BUENOS AIRES, Argentina: “A passion for many, a commitment for all” is the theme of the 2018 FDI World Dental Congress, which is returning to Buenos Aires from 5 to 8 September after it was last held there 30 years ago. The 106th edition of the congress is being hosted in collaboration with the Argentine dental association, Confederación Odontológica de la República Argentina, and being only a few months away, registration is now speeding up. The FDI World Dental Federation is inviting all dental professionals interested in the event to register and to take advantage of the early bird discount by 1 June.

After that, participants can register at the regular fee until 24 August and a different rate will be charged for registration later than that. Registration fees for regular attendees feature access to the main scientific programme, the opening ceremony, the exhibition area and various congress documents. The ticket for accompanying participants includes a half-day Buenos Aires city tour, a congress name badge, and access to the opening ceremony and exhibition area.

With an extensive scientific programme stretching over all four days, congress-goers can look forward to symposia, Meet the Expert sessions, hands-on courses, lectures and much more. Besides opportunities to network with well-known opinion leaders in dentistry, the event offers the World Dental Congress exhibition, extending over 23,000 m2. There, attendees can gather information on the newest products and learn about the latest innovations provided by the ever-evolving international dental industry that will be present at the event.

“The World Dental Congress is a flagship event for FDI. For over 100 years, we have been working on delivering a top-quality scientific programme and the most innovative dental exhibition for the advancement of oral health. The 2018 World Dental Congress is guaranteed to provide you with a unique opportunity to meet with leaders of the oral health profession from around the globe. Events such as our World Oral Health Forum are meant to ignite the conversation on hot topics related to oral health and dentistry and are at the core of the work we do at FDI”, said FDI President Dr Kathryn Kell in her invitation letter to the congress.

It is to be noted that registration fees vary depending not only on registration date, but also on type and region. A full list of fees and more detailed information about the registration process can be obtained here.
