A message frome the President
The 2020 has been a difficult year for the several problems we all had to face due to the Covid pandemic.
Despite the difficulties, the DDS continued its scientific activity organizing events, many of them online; the Third Consensus Conference was held both in presence than online, in the magnificent location of Serralunga d’Alba (Italy).
The Consensus has been a great success and all our Active Members have now the opportunity to see all video contents directly on the DDS e-learning platform.
The events organized in collaboration with the Scientific Partners and all the activities of DDS have led to a considerable increase of members, reaching the number of 350 Active Members and 8000 Free Members.
DDS has increased the network of partnership with Universities, Scientific Societies, Companies and Embassies, widening its presence in 60 Countries.
A special thanks to our Partner Companies, that have trusted DDS. We have organized several training events with them along with online activities for all our members.
We can all be satisfied with the results obtained in 2020, despite the very unfavorable conditions; we trust the scientific quality that distinguishes DDS in Digital Dentistry is the reason for our success
The DDS Board has decided to establish, starting from 2021, a new well-defined rule, namely the “DDS Certified Speaker”, third and higher level of contribution to the Society. It is a selected group of clinicians and researchers who have peculiar skills, and therefore are asked to highly contribute as Lecturers in the different activities of the Society, at a Global Level. The modalities to become “DDS Certified Speaker” are published on DDS website.
