During the conference, participants elaborated on the idea behind the Congress as well as on the current state of preparations. The Congress has its own formula, and will comprise three events running in parallel: .an e. an academic session, an exhibition, and a parliamentary session. The academic session will comprise four days of lectures, meetings with experts, workshops, panels and symposia. Professor Bartłomiej Loster, the president of the Congress and head of PTS announced it will be “an event without precedence that will forge the dentistry of the future” and that for four days Poland will become the “world capital of dentistry”. He further claimed: “It is an opportunity not only to promote Polish learning and science but also technological thinking.”
The best lecturers from all over the world have been invited to Poznań. Participants at the press conference stressed that the event will be of enormous significance in promoting Polish science around the world. The host has the privilege of filling the congress programme with speakers from Poland.
The FDI Congress in Poznań will also be accompanied by a dental products fair in pavilions 7, 7A, 8 and 8A as well as by a number of business meetings. This means there will be a year’s break for the CEDE exhibition, which will return in 2017. In the last few years the number of exhibitors presenting their products at AWDC has exceeded 200. Participants at the exhibitions include both large business concerns and family-owned producers, for whom the event is a great opportunity to promote their products on an international forum.
FDI (World Dental Federation) is the biggest dental organisation in the world. It represents more than a million dentists from all over the world, and its members include around 200 academic associations and societies from 130 countries. The FDI congress comprises a conference attended by outstanding experts from home and abroad, an international exhibition of equipment and materials as well as a debate on trends on global dental policy.

The next day, 11 September, a press conference was held in which the Spokesman for Children’s Rights, Minister Marek Michalak, discussed the role of dentists in detecting signs of violence against children. “The health service and education are two areas in which more could do be done to detect violence”, the Minister stressed at the press conference. He added: “According to the statistics, the fewest “blue card” procedures involving cases of domestic violence against children were initiated by the medical sector”. “It is important, however,” he added, “that they be suitably prepared for this.” He further pointed out that “dentists are able to identify 80% more situations indicating possible violent abuse of children than can doctors in other specialisations, including, for example, internists.” In the opinion of RPD, dentists play a key role in finding and exposing violence.
The following took part in the conference: Professor Marek Ziętek, Professor Dorota Olczak – Kowalczyk and the psychologist Dorota Zawadzka. The conference was aloes the stage for the premier of the following book: ”The Role of the Dentist in Identifying Violence against Children.”
