Gammarth, Tunisia: Under the theme “Oral health in Africa: The modern dentistry era challenge”, L'Union Africaine Pour la Santé bucco-dentaire (UASBD) will be holding the first African Dental Congress on 2 and 3 October in Gammarth. Aiming to increase oral health disease awareness throughout the country, the event features a scientific programme with international speakers, workshops and hands-on training.

The UASBD is a newly founded non-governmental organisation that aims to promote oral health in Tunisia and elsewhere in Africa. With the congress, which is to be held under the auspices of the Tunisian minister of health, the organisers hope to raise awareness of and gain support for their projects, including their A Dentist for All initiative to implement mobile dental clinics for rural areas and isolated educational institutions across the country. The UASBD, which was established at the beginning of this year, has 220 members.

Prominent international speakers will present lectures and workshops, in either French or English. The topics will cover wide-ranging aspects of modern dentistry, including tele-dentistry, modern e-health approaches, endodontics, prosthodontics, laser dentistry and restorative dentistry.

The congress venue is Carthage Thalasso Resort in Gammarth, located close to Tunisia’s capital Tunis and only a short walk from the beach. The organising committee is inviting all dental professionals to attend the congress for a unique experience in a delightful place and a pleasant atmosphere in order to learn, connect and have fun.

About 250 participants have already signed up for the congress. Interested dental professionals can still register online on the event page, or via e-mail or phone.
