The sixth national odonto-maxillo-facial scientific conference opened in Hanoi on August 1 with the participation of more than 1,000 domestic and foreign participants.

This is an annual event co-organised by the Vietnam Odonto-Stomatology Association, the National Hospital of Odonto-Stomatology and the FDI World Dental Federation.

The conference this year will hear 30 reports of domestic and foreign scientists on specialised subjects including jawbone orthopedic surgery, dental implanting and orthodontics.

In opening the three-day event, Deputy Minister of Health Nguyen Viet Tien said Vietnam’s odonto-maxillo-facial sector has seen strong development, contributing to taking care of people’s health over the last years.

The event will provide an opportunity for domestic doctors to access latest research and technologies in the field, especially in the application of advanced techniques to improve the quality of examination and treatment.

An international dental exhibition was also launched alongside the conference the same day, showcasing advanced dental equipment and latest care products from the world’s leading producers.-VNA
