Honorary Chairman – AEEDC Dubai
Consultant – Dubai Dental Services,
Dubai Health Authority
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you all the 25th edition of AEEDC Dubai, which is a very special edition, not only because it marks the silver jubilee of this celebration of dentistry worldwide, but also because it comes during a time the world is actively recovering from a pandemic that took the world by storm.
The COVID-19 pandemic has undoubtedly affected all aspects of our lives and has had a major impact on dentistry as a field despite it being an essential service, especially due to the restrictions that were imposed on practicing dentistry during the initial stages of the lockdown worldwide due to safety measures. Therefore, the need for continuous education in these times is greater than ever, and sharing knowledge and information is of utmost importance, and the need to come together as a community is fundamental to facilitate the opportunities to learn from each other and interact with one another, which is an essential tool for building the dentistry field up and developing further.
We are thrilled to be witnessing another edition of AEEDC Dubai, which is an event like no other, and are very happy to come together as a community. I would like to express my gratitude towards the continuous support we receive from our valued partners, exhibitors, lecturers and all key stakeholders, and the dentistry community as a whole, and would like to thank you all for trusting AEEDC Dubai to provide value and reinforce knowledge, and for being a significant element of its success.
I hope you achieve your set goals for AEEDC Dubai 2021 and wish you a pleasant stay in Dubai.
