The European Society of Cosmetic Dentistry (ESCD) celebrated its 15th anniversary in Lisbon, from the 20th to the 22nd of September

The festive moment of the European Society of Cosmetic Dentistry (ESCD) arrived in Lisbon during its most important congress ever organized. More than 650 participants from 50 countries gathered in Lisbon to celebrate 15 years of friendship, high-end dentistry and education.
This anniversary edition of the ESCD Meeting was really outstanding taking in consideration the feedback given by the attendees as well as the very complex organization and number of participants. We had two parallel main panels with speakers from all over the world talking about a broad range of topics surrounding aesthetics and implantology, two hands-on sessions and of course the impressive live studio, from where the interviews with various speakers, representatives of the industry and organizers were broadcast live on ESCD’s Facebook page. Experienced speakers all over the world shared their knowledge with the public: Dr. Mauro Fradeani, Prof. Dr. Marius Steigmann, Prof. Dr. Rade Paravina, Dr. Paulo Monteiro, Dr. Eric Van Dooren, Prof. Dr. Louis Hardan, Dr. Javier Tapia Guadix, Dr. Miguel Stanley, Dr. Maciej Zarow, Prof. Dr. Nitzan Bichacho & Dr. Mirela Feraru.
ESCD is also known for their unforgettable social events, starting Thursday, with a very friendly night on a roof top bar in the middle of Lisbon, Friday with the classy and ceremonial atmosphere during the President’s Dinner and the Certified Members’ Ceremony and Saturday with a Portuguese night accompanied by live fado music.
Next year ESCD will move to Saint Petersburg, so we are looking forward to having a very busy, interesting and extremely productive year ahead of us.
The European Society of Cosmetic Dentistry (ESCD) was founded in 2003 by a group of practicing dentists, dental technicians and dental professors from different universities all over Europe. The ESCD is a logical process, responding not only to the growing interest by the public in cosmetic and aesthetic dentistry, but also to the respective needs of the European dental practitioners to enhance their skills and knowledge in the field. The purpose of the society is to promote dental education in the area of cosmetic dentistry. ESCD strongly supports and facilitates the promotion and cooperation with regards to practical, scientific and ethical aspects.
