“It is everyman’s obligation to put back into the world at least the equivalent of what he takes out of it”
A.Einsten
First of all, I would like to welcome all the participants in the 28th “EOM”. It is a great pleasure for me and for all the members of the organizing committee to welcome you at our faculty during this prestigious event which is the fruit of our radiant Dental faculty of Monastir as well as its dynamic association “AEOM”.
It is a great honor for me to preside over this event, particularly as this year the 3rd African Congress of Dentistry and Implantology (ACDI) and the 4th Conference of the Deans of Dental Medicine in Africa are held jointly. I am proud and delighted: "Africa is today at the center of “EOM", better still I am very happy: Africa is at the heart of our beautiful and eternal city of Monastir, what a sweet and invigorating synergy!
For this year 2020, there will be no pre-conference day as we used to have. But we offer you three full days, devoted to prestigious speakers and participants. .We have chosen to focus on major issues, which does not exclude dealing with other topics. You are invited to attend, in big numbers, many of our seminars that were thoughtful selected to better live the latest scientific news. We also kindly invite you to consult our e-posters and our displayed posters; you will be pleasantly surprised by the presence of colleagues of great renown. The exhibition spaces are also worth seeing. Make sure to visit our industrial partners, without whom our dental art would not be what it is nowadays. Find out about the advantages offered during the 3rd editions of the “African Dental Expo”, an added value and a great means of promoting excellence. We also invite you to register in our continuing education workshops which integrate all the fields of our different specialties. It is surely an excellent opportunity to upgrade, and even a privileged space to boost performance.
In order to soften the academic rigor of our conference, you are invited to explore our cultural spaces and to discover the remarkable artistic side as well as the admirable talent of many of our colleagues. Your contributions and your suggestions will certainly launch a dynamic to promote innovation and support scientific research. The art of dentistry is in rapid and permanent evolution, we must therefore get involved in successful national and international experiences. The “EOMs” are a forum and a space for sharing and exchanging knowledge and an opportunity to forge cooperation and partnerships. I am sure the high scientific level of the works presented during this conference will help to strengthen the value and scope of this triple event.
To conclude, I wish you an excellent and fruitful “EOM” 2020.I also wish our dear guests an excellent stay, full of conviviality and friendship in our tolerant and beautiful Tunisia.
