A little bit of history

A little bit of history Young Dentists Worldwide (YDW) was established in 1991 in Portugal at Annual Congress of the International Association of Dental Students (IADS) by 15 eager and freshly graduated dentists. It is the essential link to bridge the gap between the World Dental Federation (FDI) and the International Association of Dental Students (IADS).

At IDS 2008 Interim Committee was elected that started working. A new Executive Committee of YDW for the next 3 years was elected during an annual meeting of IADS and YDW in Iasi, Romania in 2009:

President - Mark Antal, Hungary.

Communication Officer - Juliane Gnoth, Germany,

International Scientific Officer - Ahmed Hawas, Egypt,

Editor - Ingmar Dobberstein, Germany

Treasurer - Andrea Veitova, Czech Republic.
