Esthetic Dentistry; Back to the Future

It is with great pleasure that we have arranged the 13th world congress of the International Federation of Esthetic Dentistry (IFED), celebrating the 30th anniversary of the IFED, hosted by the Turkish Academy of Esthetic Dentistry (EDAD), to take place in Istanbul, Turkey from April 25-27, 2024.

The program, featuring world-renowned speakers from around the globe, promises to address the current state of esthetic dentistry, having evolved from the initiatives taken by ground-breaking clinicians over the past several decades, to where we consider the gold-standard in interdisciplinary treatment is today … and while looking to the future of where we can be headed (are we already there?) in the foreseeable future.

The Spanish-American philosopher, Jorge Agustin Nicolas Ruiz de Santayana y Borras, better known as George Santayana is famously known for having written more than a century ago “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it” … and where clinical protocols proved less than ideal, they were modified to be deemed successful, and our current gold-standards are continuously being assessed, evaluated and tested, with changes being made, as science and clinical research lead the way to continually enhance the quality of dental care provided by our profession to our patients.

We promise that the social program organised by the EDAD hosting organisation will also highlight the wonders of modern Istanbul while remembering the past of this wonderful country.

Please join us in Istanbul April 25-27 for what promises to be the International dental congress of 2024.
