About FDI

  • About FDI
FDI World Dental Federation (FDI) serves as the principal representative body for over one million dentists worldwide.
Its membership includes approximately 200 national member associations and specialist groups from more than 130
countries. FDI is a global player, developing health policy and continuing education programmes, speaking as a unified
voice for dentistry in international advocacy, and supporting member associations in oral health promotion activities.
A non-governmental organization based in Geneva, Switzerland, FDI is governed by a General Assembly, with policy
enacted by its Council and activities implemented through five standing committees comprising 46 volunteers from
among its member national dental associations (NDAs). Every year, some 300 delegates attend FDI’s World Dental
Parliament to debate and define the global future of dentistry.
FDI’s long and distinguished history and accumulated experience in dental education, public health and access to care
make it uniquely expert. It represents the voice of the oral health community at the World Health Organization (WHO),
with whom it is in official relations, and at other United Nations (UN) agencies, including UNEP.
