It gives me great pleasure to introduce you to the 2011 FDI Annual World Dental Congress in Mexico City, September 14-17, 2011. We are excited to return to Mexico City since the congresses in 1972 and 1999 to once again experience the warm hospitality so typical of Mexicans.
Under the theme of “New Horizons in Oral Health Care”, this congress will offer a platform to learn and exchange ideas with a host of internationally renowned speakers participating in a cutting edge scientific programme jointly developed by the FDI and the Mexican Dental Association (ADM). The choice of Mexico City for the 99th Annual World Dental Congress will provide delegates with unique opportunities to develop their professional knowledge and skills as well as to network with a truly global audience. I also strongly encourage you to take advantage of the presence of over 200 exhibiting companies to keep up to date with evolving technologies of equipment and the latest dental materials.
A visit to Mexico would not be complete without taking advantage of discovering the rich culture, gastronomic traditions and multicolored folklore the country provides. There will be many opportunities to experience these during the congress and, should you decide to extend your stay in the country, you can take the opportunity to further discover Mexico’s biodiversity through specially selected excursions throughout the country.
I am greatly looking forward to the 2011 FDI Annual World Dental Congress in Mexico City and look forward to meeting you there!

Message from the LOC Chairman
It is a great honour for the Mexican Dental Association that, for the third time in history (1972,1999 and 2011), we will host the Annual World Dental Congress of the International Dental Federation (FDI), now in its edition XCIX. It is a great honour, but also a great responsibility.
FDI is the largest dental organization in the world, bringing together 220 countries and more than one million dentists worldwide.
The congress will take place from 14 to 17 September 2011, at Centro Banamex in Mexico City.
We are sure that we will have one of the best scientific programmes that have been presented in Mexico and we are proud to have the participation of the best exponents of contemporary dentistry. We will have speakers from many parts of the world who will present current topics of immediate clinical use in most dental specialties: Endodontics, Periodontics, Prosthodontics, Pediatric Dentistry, Maxillofacial Surgery, Implantology, Dental Caries, Saliva, Genetics and Oral Health, among other specialities. With this scientific programme we are aiming for attendees to have access to technological advances and scientific findings, as well as the more advanced techniques.
In addition, we will offer a large trade show which will feature the world's largest companies offering products, equipment, instruments and cutting edge technology. We invite you to attend. You will have the opportunity to benefit from a variety of offers and participate in the daily raffle for a Mercedes Benz car.
We are preparing a grand opening with the participation of the most prominent people in the field of dentistry worldwide and in which, as part of the artistic section we will present the essence of our great Mexican culture. We are very pleased and proud to share this event with you.
