San Francisco, U.S.: The International College of Dentists (ICD), conceived in 1920 by two visionary leaders, is today the 12,000-strong foremost global honor society for dentists and supports hundreds of humanitarian and educational projects worldwide. Global leaders met for the launch of the ICD’s centennial celebrations during the FDI World Dental Congress held last week in San Francisco.

Witnessed by an enthusiastic crowd of over 800 attendees, the global launch of the ICD’s centennial celebrations kicked off during the dinner dance held by the US section. Leaders from the ICD, ADA and FDI were joined by ICD centennial partner Henry Schein and ICD global media partner Dental Tribune International to support the commemoration. Adding to the excitement of the evening was the screening of the new promotional video, capturing the impact of 100 years of the ICD and the upcoming events in Japan. The video has already registered over 2,000 views on different social media channels!

As part of the global launch, registration was officially opened on the centennial website,, for the once-in-a-century meeting to be held Nov. 11–13, 2020, in Nagoya.
