Report on the WFLD congress 2008


The World Federation for Laser Dentistry (WFLD) held the 11th congress in Hong Kong from the 28th to the 30th of July 2008. The congress was organized by the HK Surgical Laser Association; supported by the Hong Kong Tourism Board and Hong Kong Dental Association.

Fifteen keynote speakers presented the use of lasers in different fields of dentistry. Close to 300 academics and clinicians from 36 countries all over the world attended the congress. There were more than 200 papers presented on scientific research and clinical techniques in laser dentistry.

17 exhibitors supported the congress.  Apart from the latest dental lasers on show, there was a “Prefect Image” section. This is an innovative idea bringing hi-tech dentistry to life. Waterproof LCD monitor, oral cancer diagnostic device and surgical scope were part of the attractions in this section. We were grateful to Elexxion for choosing our meeting to launch their World premiere diode laser; the “Claros Nano”.
