IDEALS was formed as a society in Amsterdam in 2001 during the fourth International Congress on Dental Law and Ethics. In the intervening years, the themes of the bi-annual Congress have included topics covering human rights, access and justice, information technology, insurance, autonomy and patient rights, responsibility and liability, and global oral health.
Now, 25 years after the first congress was held, it is timely to step back and take an overview of “The Importance of Dental Ethics and Law.” This will provide the opportunity to look at where we stand now, what has changed and what will be needed.
Papers for this Congress will once again be accepted from a wide diversity of backgrounds and will bring together expert opinions of what is currently important for dentistry. Abstracts will be called in the coming months and the format, deadlines, and protocol for peer review will be published.
For the time being – MARK YOUR DIARY! 23-25 August 2018
We look forward to seeing you at another challenging and inspiring Congress.
The Congress Committee
