Dear Colleagues,The World Federation for Laser Dentistry coming soon to its 30th anniversary since its establishment in 1988 is still serving the initial goal. To exchange, advance and spread the scientific knowledge that is related to laser dentistry. All divisions worldwide are contributing and working on the same wavelength. We as the European Division, try to support our organisation with collaborations, good communication between our members and succesful biannual meetings.Our first congress in Nice back in 2007 started this fruitful series, followed by Istanbul, Rome, Brussels and Bucharest. Every step of the way was a delightful meeting of familiar faces and friends, which accompanied the extremely interesting scientific programs.It is with great honour that we continue these meetings with the 6th European Division Congress of WFLD, in the beautiful city of Thessaloniki,. We are thankful for the great support by the University i serve (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki) and the Hellenic Academy for Laser Dentistry (HALD). We are more than delighted to discover that all forces of laser dentistry have contributed to this important scientic event, emphasising the fact that dentists from around the world are eager to participate and discover the latest research and clinical projects from the most prominent opinion leaders. I am feeling also honoured that for the rst time all “major” companies in dental laser and restorative field have sponsored this event and their presence will give us the opportunity to have a multicolour “palette” of wavelengths and laser devices in the congress exhibition.23 sponsors, 25 invited speakers, 70 oral presentations, 30 e-posters, a parallel aesthetic and CAD/CAM congress on Saturday and eight free-of-charge workshops are ensuring a successful and informative meeting. Moreover, the social events such as the welcome cocktail on the exhibition area and the gala dinner will give you the opportunity to meet and reunite with colleagues from all over the world.The 6th European Division Congress of the WFLD is opening its doors and welcomes you in Makedonia Palace Hotel of Thessaloniki on 22 to 23 September. You are cordially invited to join us and indulge in two days of science and socialising in the laser dental family.Let’s meet in Thessaloniki! Let’s bring laser light to sunlight!
Dear colleagues,It gives me great honour and pleasure to welcome you to the 6th WFLD-ED 2017 in 22nd and 23rd of September 2017 in the city of Thessaloniki in Greece. The motto we picked up for the Congress is “Bringing Laser to Sunlight” as Hellas which is the historical name of Greece since ancient times means “the land of light”. Moreover Thessaloniki and its region Macedonia, with history that goes back thousands of yearsis the birthplace of two of the brightest historical persons, King Alexander the Great and his teacher the founder of philosophy Aristotelis. Of course modern Thessaloniki is also a metropolis that provides visitors with all different opportunities for leisure and good time.Most significantly of course, our efforts concenttrate on bringing on the latest developments in the field of Dental Lasers presented by international authorities, both academics and clinical practitioners giving to the participants a comprehensive thorough view of where we are standing and where developments are leading us. An innovation to the congress is that there will be also a parallel restorative-aesthetic scientific program related to the use of lasers as well.We are confident that the 6th WFLD-ED 2017 in 22nd and 23rd of September 2017 will meet the highest expectations and standards and I would like once again to welcome you and be part of a great scientific event done under the bright greek sun.
Dear friends,It is my great pleasure as a Post-Chairman of WFLD-ED to welcome you to the 6th Congress of the European Division of WFLD in Greece 2017. After Nice, Istanbul, Rome, Bruxelles and Bucharest, Thessaloniki is hosting the next Congress of WFLD-ED. I’m sure that following the previous successful meetings of the WFLD-ED also this Congress will be a unique opportunity, for researchers and clinicians from many countries in the field of oral laser medicine and surgery, to leran more concerning the latest advancements in this topic. A personal thank to the Chairman of the Congress, Dimitris Strakas, which through a constant and fruitful work has created a prestigious scientific program. It is my wish and desire that for all partecipants, the Thessaloniniki 2017 WFLD-ED Congress will represent an important event for the progress of laser dentistry.
