This year, the biennial Alexandria International Dental Congress - AIDC celebrated its 20th run in a row marking 40 years of progress and development from the 1st till the 4th of November 2016 in Radisson Blu hotel, Alexandria, Egypt.
Along these years many professors and colleagues have shared the responsibilities of carrying on this congress being one of the oldest, if not really the oldest, in the region. Throughout these years, Faculty of Dentistry, Alexandria University has hosted this meeting maintaining high standards and traditions and passing this tradition from generation to the other.
This year the organizing committee was selected from those who witnessed the development of this meeting from its very beginnings. The theme of this meeting was 40 years and more which indicates the originality of this congress and how they are looking forward for future development.
It is fair to conclude that the conference was a great success! Many people have contributed in so many ways to turn this event into a smoothly running meeting with many very interesting presentations and posters and a very good atmosphere for discussion and networking.
More than 14 Dental Topics and 23 workshops were presented by more than 80 prominent speakers. A comprehensive exhibition was integral to the Conference. The exhibition provided a unique platform to all leading manufacturers and new comers worldwide for launching their latest innovations and technologies.
