Promoting Oral & General Health through Prevention
We found this society because we firmly believe that many oral diseases and dental conditions are preventable with good oral hygiene practice and early treatment.
President, Society of Preventive Dentistry of Hong Kong
I am very pleased that we are getting together here for our very first SPDHK meeting today. It’s my great honour to give this opening speech of the inaugural meeting for the Society of Preventive Dentistry of Hong Kong, in short, SPDHK.
SPDHK is the first association of preventive dentistry in Hong Kong. We found this society because we firmly believe that many oral diseases and dental conditions are preventable with good oral hygiene practice and early treatment. Preventive dental care is the most cost-effective strategy to achieve good oral health. SPDHK strives to promote oral and general health through prevention, to offer scientific guidance regarding dental preventive and curative treatment modalities, to provide continuing professional development to the medical and dental practitioners, to create a local and international network of the medical and dental fraternity, and to support research in the field of Preventive Dentistry.
From today, SPDHK will not only work closely with dental professional and their associations to promote the practice of preventing oral disease for the people in Hong Kong, but also will work closely with the Asia Academy of Prevention Dentistry to promote the practice of oral health prevention in Asia and worldwide. I am delighted to let you know that the 15th international conference of the Asia Academy of Prevention Dentistry will be held in Hong Kong. I am look forward to your support and participation in this conference in 2023.
May the Society of Preventive Dentistry of Hong Kong become a significant association and contributor to preventive dentistry with all the successes. Thank you.
