IAPD 2015 - 25th Congress


The British Society of Paediatric Dentistry (BSPD) has the great honour of hosting the 25th Congress of the International Association of Paediatric Dentistry in 2015. This marks a significant anniversary in the history of IAPD and we are committed to making the Congress a memorable one.  The BSPD has a thriving membership of almost 600, including several renowned paediatric dentists. It has a long tradition of hosting successful national and international meetings, including the 1999 IAPD Congress in London.

The overall scientific theme ‘The Voice of the Child’ has been chosen to advocate the changing position of children in our world. Delegates will be updated regarding current social theory and policy relating to childhood, the need for safeguarding, and how to engage child-centred approaches within clinical practice and oral health-related research. We want to showcase world-class and holistic dental care for children. Professor Helen Rodd, Chair of the Scientific Committee, has secured some highly acclaimed speakers in this field, but is also committed to inviting talented new speakers to the arena.

We do hope you will be able to join us.
