Dear Colleagues,

With the enthusiasm we get from your increasing interest every year in the international congresses of the Turkish Dental Association, we are preparing for Turkey’s most comprehensive congress in the field of dental medicine for you in Ankara, the city of Atatürk, in September 2018, in the most beautiful season of it.

The Turkish Dental Association has carried the framework of its Continuous Dental Medicine Training to the competence of an oral doctor who prevents the occurrence of diseases and who influences the overall health of his/her patient while ensuring oral and dental health, above the identity of the dentist as a doctor who repairs, who replaces what is missing, by acting on the philosophy of evidence-based dental medicine. It is on this idea that the scientific program of the international 2018 Ankara congress of the Turkish Dental Association has been made.

I address you with the words of Associate Professor Merih Baykara, our late senior, President of the Organizing Committee of the previous Ankara Congress with its scientific program, social activities and extensive Expo-Dental Fair:

“I invite you to our congress in Ankara, where many of us spent years as student and where your memories and friendships will come back to life with its Kızılay Square, Tunalı Hilmi Street, and Kuğulu Park.”

Dr. A. R. İlker CEBECİ
President of the Turkish Dental Association & the Congress










Dear Colleagues,,

Our preparations for the “TDA 24th International Dental Congress and Expodental 2018”, the congress and fair event of the Turkish Dental Association that has become a brand, to be held on 27-30 September 2018 at Congresium Ankara are intensively continuing. We are glad and proud that we will meet with you again in the capital city of our beautiful country after an interval of 6 years.

Our congresses, a close point of contact with the members of the Turkish Dental Association and Chambers of Dentistry, make a great contribution to the development of our knowledge concerning innovations and materials with a large number of firms and broad fair participation, in addition to being the most important event on the road to evidence-based current and accurate information.

The TDA 24th International Congress of Dental Medicine will offer our colleagues working in their clinics, in hospitals and in universities extraordinary opportunities to meet and exchange information with specialists from the entire world and from our country. For this year’s congress, programs are also being prepared where all components of the profession will be brought together and we will share a scientific environment.
It also makes us proud that we will enable our colleagues, scattered in all parts of Turkey and the world, to meet with one another as every year.

For professional solidarity, refreshed knowledge, reinforced friendships and feeling the just pride of our association, we expect you our dear colleagues, to join us in Ankara, our capital city, which is one of the cities where autumn is lived the most beautifully and the sole city in which houses Atatürk’s Mausoleum and the foundations of our Republic.

President of the Ankara Chamber of Dentistry and
The Organizing Committee
