Dear colleagues and friends

The Chilean Society of Paediatric Dentistry has the great honor of hosting the XXVI Congress of the International Association of Paediatric Dentistry in Santiago, Chile, in October 2017. It is a privilege for Chile and our Society to organize this Congress and welcome you all to our beautiful country, where we will be looking forward to hearing that you have booked this date to attend this wonderful celebration for Paediatric Dentistry worldwide.

The Chilean Society of Paediatric Dentistry is over 60 years old and has a long tradition of hosting successful congresses, conferences and workshops at both national and international levels.

Therefore, we have accepted this challenge with great responsibility and enthusiasm.

We are working hard not only to organize a great and unforgettable congress at a scientific, academic and technological level, but also to create a space where we can strengthen friendship ties and achieve new levels of synergy among the specialists attending the congress from all the continents.

A high-level scientific program has been prepared, in which the overall theme is “A southern view for children’s smiles”. We are looking forward to sharing valuable knowledge with outstanding speakers from all over the world, who will be covering the most important topics in the field of paediatric dentistry at present.

We do hope you will be able to join us in Chile, a land settled between the Andes Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, in order to continue working to improve children’s smiles.
