2016 IAPD Taiwan Regional Meeting


For the first time in its history, the International Association of Paediatric Dentistry (IAPD) held its regional meeting in Taiwan during the last weekend of August in 2016.

This IAPD Taiwan Regional Meeting was hosted by the Taiwan Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. Three of the main themes of this meeting were pediatric esthetic crowns, management of traumatic young permanent teeth and new trends in the management of caries and hypomineralization in children.

The meeting had impressively gathered attention from governments, dental professional organizations, and the public to once again focus on pediatric oral health. IAPD represents “The Global Voice of Children’s Oral Health”, this meeting has successfully moved IAPD one step closer to this goal.

We would like to thank Wrigley Taiwan for their generous support.
