SYDNEY, Australia: To engage with aspiring dental professionals and students, FDI has launched the Young Dentists Forum, and the inaugural session will be taking place on 27 September at the FDI World Dental Congress. The half-day programme has been thoughtfully tailored to the needs and interests of young dental professionals and students and will feature captivating presentations and a stimulating panel discussion led by distinguished international speakers alongside industry leaders and emerging voices.
Discussing the forum’s mission, Dr William Cheung, chair of the FDI Education Committee and the visionary behind the initiative, explained: “Our aim is to provide young professionals with a platform where they can learn about the latest developments in dentistry, explore various career paths and foster connections with peers.” By creating a dynamic environment that nurtures the exchange of knowledge and ideas, FDI is demonstrating its dedication to equipping young dentists with the tools they need to excel in their early careers.

Understanding the role of a global organised dentistry body like FDI is vital in shaping the future of our profession.
