in Collaboration with the Taiwan Academy of Pediatric Dentistry   

Welcome Letter

Dear Colleagues,

The Board of Directors of the International Association of Paediatric Dentistry (IAPD) is pleased to invite you to attend the 2nd Global Summit of IAPD: Care Pathways for Caries Management in Children: Global Initiative. The Summit will take place  on 11-13 November 2022 in Taipei, Taiwan and is organised in collaboration with the Taiwan Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (TAPD).
The purpose of this summit is to bring together leading scientists (researchers and clinicians) from around the globe to discuss Dental Caries Management. The traditional global approaches to the treatment of dental caries have focused on repairing the consequences of the caries rather than addressing the disease itself. Advances in caries microbiology, caries detection, risk assessment, pulp therapy, and non-surgical and surgical management are fundamentally shifting the standards of caries management. To facilitate the global adoption of evidence-based caries management, international dental caries experts will consider the broad perspective on how different cultures, developed/developing countries and child behaviours may affect the teaching and implementation of caries risk assessment, caries detection, and thresholds for treatment. Care pathways showing the strengths of evidence for preventive strategies, remineralization, caries arrest, minimally invasive care and surgical care will be examined.

We invite all our National Societies and individual members and call on the industry to participate in this important scientific event, as this will be one of the few international opportunities to meet together, exchange information, as well as  discuss and learn about  emerging dental caries management strategies.

Highlights of the Meeting:

  • Learn directly from international renowned experts about the exciting changes occurring within dentistry.
  • Discuss with experts the latest information on research that is helping clinicians manage caries in children.
  • Update your knowledge about the new evidence-based approach to caries management and contribute to the IAPD’s goal to improve prevention and care for children.
  • Get acquainted with the newest and innovative products for the management of caries, including prevention and treatment.

We look forward to welcome you all in Taipei in November 2022!
