WCDT 2024 Conference President
Private Practice in Shiga, Japan
Despite the high prevalence of traumatized teeth, dental trauma education is still lacking in many dental schools around the world. Traumatic dental injuries are frequent in young individuals, such as school-aged children. Dental trauma is an acute condition with potential chronic consequences. It usually involves different issues such as the tooth hard tissue, dental pulp, periodontal ligament, alveolar bone, and gingiva, and therefore general knowledge and skills in dentistry are essential for proper understanding, diagnosis and treatment of these injuries. In addition, higher healing ability of the body due to the young age and the principle that it is basically different from infectious diseases have made treatments more conservative and biological for tooth, pulp, periodontal ligament and bone.
WCDT 2024 is the first World Congress on Dental Traumatology held after Dr. JensOve Andreasen passed away and it is positioned as an important academic event to celebrate Dental Traumatology and the legacy he left behind to pass on to future generations. His wish is to protect the future of children who have suffered dental trauma.
Join us in Tokyo for the greatest educational event of 2024 in dental traumatology!
We are looking forward to having fun learning together with everyone around the world under the theme of “quote; protecting the future of children".
