This year FDIS annual convention took place in Poznan, Poland, September 7-10.
The program included a large variety of topics in addition to the relatively new World Oral Health Forum (WOHF). WOHF year will largely be about Minamata Convention on mercury.
FDI has not had any group that looked into dental materials. The Science Committee was therefore given the task of drawing up the terms and conditions for such a group and propose members. The new committee will report to the Science Committee and the head of this new committee is a member of the Science Committee. The new leader of the committee is Prof .dr. Reinhard Hickel from Germany.
Jon E. Dahl, director of Nordic Institute for dental materials (NIOM) and specialist in dental materials, have also agreed to participate in the group.
