This conference came with the aim of motivating the members and colleagues in the dental society considering the social divergence the world is witnessing today.

Dr. Thamer Theeb, a dental consultant at the British Academy (BAIRD), comments: “This conference is the largest virtual gathering of dentists around the world. The idea started after seeing many students watching their daily lessons online and following up on the work of many employees and companies from their home, therefore, came the idea of organizing this conference and testing modern applications in exchanging information and ideas and adapting to the mechanisms of remote communication with members and doctors from various disciplines.”
