As we went to press, the International College of Dentists (ICD) was holding a joint meeting of its International Council and its European Section in Dublin. The European Section is holding its 60th Annual Meeting and its current President is Dr Tom Feeney, a former member of the Editorial Board of the Journal. The world President of the ICD is Dr Joe Kenneally, who was interviewed in our April/May edition.
In addition to the formal meetings, the ICD was also staging a scientific programme and a public forum. The scientific programme under the theme “Learning without limits” was taking place at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland on St Stephen’s Green, while the public forum was on the theme of volunteer dental projects and was being held in the Dublin Dental University Hospital. It’s a significant global dental event, which brought 210 dentists to Ireland, with a further 150 accompanying persons, providing a welcome boost to the economy. Sponsors for the event were Henry Schein, Fáilte Ireland and Kildare Village.
