The First African Regional Congress of the World Dental Federation organized by the Association Oral Prevention Moroccan is a platform to bring together African expertise around common objectives of promotion of Oral Health for the African people. It is also an opportunity to exchange the respective expertise of the different countries in the field of not only the oral prevention but also the latest technological and scientific advances of Oral Medicine and their impact on dental practice.
That Morocco is elected to organize this major event is a challenge for the organizers, and this, for several reasons. Congress needs to fit within the current dynamics of cooperation between Morocco and the African continent that has gained new momentum under the leadership of His Majesty King Mohamed VI that glorifies God and the assists. Moreover, this first edition since the creation of the IDF, that 116 years ago, must be the beginning of a sustainable process, like all regional FDI Congress.
The AMPBD, is up to this challenge. Indeed, with its expertise, its members, as well as its national and international partners was naturally proposed to light the torch at the African level. The support of various departments, faculties, professional and dental professional organizations were a force to think about this project, believe and achieve. The AMPBD every effort for this Congress to be a national project strengthens Morocco's place as an African leader on economic, social and health.
A rich and diverse scientific program run by African and international speakers will allow all colleagues to tap the knowledge to ethical dental practice evidence based with the main objective of Drive Africa to optimal oral health .
Our business partners offer an exhibition center where everyone can find suitable technologies for its practice.
I thank all the partners and the World Dental Federation for their confidence.
I thank all the committees met several times at the expense of their own time to organize, with a nationalist and professional fiber congress, and also to provide better welcome to all our guests.
Marrakech, imperial red city of Morocco is home to this conference and looks forward to welcoming you all.
