Handling children with care
Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre and Gothia Towers
Welcome to Gothenburg!
The European Academy of Paediatric Dentistry is looking forward to welcoming you to its 17th EAPD Congress, to be held in Gothenburg, Sweden in 2024.
It is my pleasure to cordially invite you, on behalf of the EAPD Board, to this unique scientific event where the state-of-the-art of a variety of topics within the field of paediatric dentistry will be discussed and presented. The main theme of our Congress will be ‘Handling children with care’. The meeting will cover topics dealing with Communication, Behaviour management and Dental Anomalies, with a pre-congress focusing on Dental Erosion. Join us at this occasion and share your own research and expertise with your colleagues!
Between June 12-15, 2024, Gothenburg will be the place to be for paediatric dentists who want to learn about the latest developments within the field of paediatric dentistry. The event will provide a forum for participants to network with colleagues from all over Europe and beyond.
Gothenburg is Sweden’s second largest city, situated on the scenic west coast, celebrating its 400th anniversary in 2023. Gothenburg is a pocket-size metropolis, with many of its attractions at walking distance – or a Gothenburg tram ride away. There is no better place to enjoy high-quality, locally sourced seafood than in one of Gothenburg’s many fish restaurants. But what really sets Gothenburg apart is its commitment to going green.
The city has many things to offer, guaranteeing a challenging social program. The Local Organizing Committee is doing its utmost to make it an unforgettable event.
Looking forward to welcoming you in Gothenburg!
Prof Dominique Declerck
Warmest greetings and a heartfelt welcome to Gothenburg, Sweden!
I am happy to invite you to join us during the most radiant time of the year, June, when we bask in 18 glorious hours of daylight per day. I hope that your visit to our charming city, celebrating its 400th anniversary, will be a truly enjoyable experience. As you explore Sweden, you’ll discover that it is also the birthplace of every pedodontist’s best friend – the local anaesthetic substance of Lidocaine, XylocainÆ.
I hope that the 17th Congress of the EAPD will enlighten and inspire you, enriching your future dental work with children.
Wishing you all the best and looking forward to a successful and rewarding congress!
President of the Swedish Society of Paediatric Dentistry
