SYDNEY, Australia: From 26 to 29 September, the Australian Dental Association and FDI World Dental Federation will present a special edition of the World Dental Congress (WDC). Owing to COVID-19 travel restrictions, the congress will be completely virtual for the first time. This year’s WDC will bring together leaders from across the world in dental practice, research, academia and industry to present quality, innovative and effective continuing education.

The FDI scientific sessions, including the standing committee fora, will be held on the FDI Oral Health Campus this year. With access to a choice of lecture topics, like “Tackling antibiotic resistance—avoiding the next pandemic” and “Sustainability through excellence in oral health care”, participants will have enhanced continuing education opportunities this summer. The full programme can be accessed here.

The over 200 scientific sessions will provide unparalleled learning opportunities for everyone. The sessions will be available live and on demand from 26 to 29 September, and the availability period will extend to 60 days beyond the main congress days—a new feature offered by FDI.

A prominent speaker in the WDC—Special Edition programme is expert in removable prosthodontics Dr Finlay Sutton from the UK. Sutton will be giving three lectures, titled “Healing the human spirit with removable dentures (that work and look like their own departed teeth)”. In light of the event, FDI met with Sutton for an interview which can be watched below.
