EUROPEAN ACADEMY OF PAEDIATRIC DENTISTRY

EUROPEAN ACADEMY OF PAEDIATRIC DENTISTRY

Welcome Letter

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

On behalf of the European Academy of Paediatric Dentistry, it is my great pleasure to invite you all to the 16th EAPD Congress, in Lisbon, Portugal, June 16th–18th, 2022.

Lisbon is the westernmost capital city in continental Europe and one of the oldest cities of Europe with a 2700 year old continuous history and tradition. The city is probably best known for its colonial history, ornate architecture and tradition of Fado music but some of its best features are in the everyday – spectacular hilltop vistas in Alfama or at St. George’s Castle, pleasant year-round weather and very friendly local people.

The venue for the 16th EAPD Congress will be the Lisbon Congress Centre (LCC). LLC in its present form operates since 1995 offering integrated services covering all the needs of a Congress and holding a long track record of hosting successful international congresses. It is a fundamental factor in making Lisbon one of the most popular destinations in the world for congresses and international conferences.

Lisbon will host the 16th EAPD Congress in collaboration with the 4th Iberian Congress of Paediatric Dentistry, a Congress that is organised jointly by the Spanish Society of Paediatric Dentistry (SEOP) and the Portuguese Society of Paediatric Dentistry (SPOP). This collaboration offers a great opportunity to bring together the Spanish and Portuguese colleagues with the rest European Paediatric Dentists.

The EAPD has a long history of very successful Congresses with a very strong scientific program and also renowned social functions in a family environment, and Lisbon will give us the opportunity to continue this tradition and also to meet again after the challenges we had due to COVID-19.

The Scientific Committee is working tirelessly to compose a fascinating scientific program with excellent invited keynote speakers and other opinion leaders in addition to experts from every European country. Also, the Organising Committee is putting together a variety of enjoyable and diverse social program that will highlight the rich tradition and contemporary life of Lisbon.

We look forward to welcoming you to Lisbon in 2022!
