Welcome to your IAPD Congress


Dr. Marc Saadia
Chairman of the IAPD 2019 Congress

Dear Friends

I am immensely excited to address you at this time.

We have been working for the past 4 years to create a great meeting and we are still working to welcome you and your family.

As you know we have chosen the city of Cancun as our venue to host IAPD meeting, 2019.

Imagine Paradise on earth, enriched  by a great scientific meeting and a full social agenda.

Connectivity is great; Cancun receives many direct flights from most main cities around the world.

We chose the best hotels walking distance from the venue. Some of them are all inclusive, meaning you and your family will be indulged with food and drinks so you will not have to worry about them if you are at the meeting.

We are putting together a social program for you and /or your spouse about Mexico during the meeting, enhanced with dozens of activities such as sports, archeological tours and amusement parks that will fill your days before, during and after the meeting.

From the scientific viewpoint, we will have 5 pre congress topics.
5 keynote sessions, more than 60 speakers, oral sessions in English and Spanish, ALL with simultaneous translation. We look for over 800 quality poster presentations.
You will find more than 90 commercial booths displayed in over 4000 square meters.

We Welcome you to Cancun, July 3rd to July 7th 2019.

As we say in Mexico, “Mi casa es tu casa” “My home is your home”

Dear Colleagues

It is my honor and pleasure to invite you to the 27th IAPD Congress that will be held in the beautiful city of Cancun, Mexico. This is a landmark congress for us because we will also celebrate the 50th anniversary of our Association.


IAPD during the past fifty years has grown from an association of 11 National Societies and a supporting membership of only 270 paediatric dentists, to 69 National Member Societies and more than 2000 individual members that we have today. Our membership is unique in its diversity of members, nationalities and cultures.


Our congresses have likewise grown from a few hundred participants to the first ones, to over 1500 delegates in recent years. What is more impressive though, is that these delegates come from over 80 countries each time.


The Mexican Local Organizing Committee with the help of our Board of Directors and Standing Committee members, are organizing an exceptional scientific program and many exciting social events. Adding the wonderful location to this, we are all looking forward to another memorable IAPD Congress.

We look forward to welcoming you all in Cancun!
