International Conference, General Assembly and New Presidium in the Hungarian Dental Association


As in the previous year, the Hungarian Dental Association organized the Scientific Meeting entitled Perspectives in Perio-Impantology and Comprehensive Dentistry in Szeged on 12-13 May this year. The meeting attracted over 570 attendants from Hungary and, with a scientific program involving nine renowned plenary invited speakers from five countries in Europe and overseas as well.
Our 45 exhibitors enjoyed very high turn-up, and this year we had a special Korean Corner of commercial partners, with 16 Korean exhibitors. His Excellency Yim Geun-hyeong ambassador of Korea was kind enough to officially open the Korean Corner in Szeged on 12 May.
It is one primary goal of the Hungarian Dental Association to collaborate and share knowledge with international dental associations. This year, on the festive gala dinner evening, our association signed an agreement with the Israeli Dental Association.
The Conference was also the host of the annual General Assembly of the Hungarian Dental Association. The General Assembly, after voting about budget, past and future actions, established a new, Scientific Section that has as its primary objective the furthering of young Hungarian researchers in Dentistry. This year’s assembly had another special significance: the 11-member Presidium of the Association was re-elected; where all four dental educational institutions in Hungary are represented by presidium members. We are certain that the new presidium will continue work with the same outstanding efforts as before, furthering Hungarian Dentistry along its path towards academic and professional development.
