Dear Colleagues,

As tooth decay and periodontal diseases are effecting morbidity more than mortality, it is inevitable for our government to ignore the improvements in oral health politics which interferes society’s oral health.

It has been noticed that public health service mostly covers operational and restorative treatments for the adult patients (%96) whereas preventive dentistry based services maintained for children only sharing the %4 of the total expenditure. This situation is far from securing the next generation's oral health and contributing positively on the public health. For years, TDA has been requesting to generate a service model based on 'academıc based preventive dentistry oral health politics'. Dental clinics should be the focus of this service model.

Like supporting various academic activities, Turkish Dental Association also performs a very important service at the international congresses with colleagues embracing post graduation academic and technology world every year.

Here, we will carry out a new one, 21st International Dental Congress in Istanbul. Let's live Istanbul in Istanbul.

Let's take a breath all together, with you in Istanbul...
To the new horizons...

Please save 28th-30th May 2015 on your agenda for TDA Istanbul Congress.

Best regards,

Prof.Dr. Taner YÜCEL
President of Turkish Dental Association and the Congress
