edsa-toothpic-sThe Faculty of Dentistry of Rīga Stradiņš University will be hosting the next conference of the European Dental Students Association (EDSA) in August 2014.

It is a special pleasure for RSU to host such an important event since the process of getting accepted as an official member of the EDSA has been a rather tedious one. In 2013, RSU dental students Noel Abdayem, Johannes Göbel and Dmitry Golenkov attended the EDSA conference in Birmingham and finalised the last step of getting RSU’s Faculty of Dentistry voted as an official EDSA member.

From 24th until 30th of August, the EDSA conference will be held at the Faculty of Dentistry in Rīga, immediately followed by the annual ADEE (Association of Dental Education in Europe) meeting. The fact that both meetings will take place consecutively in the European capital of Culture 2014 will give students and professors the opportunity to interact with each other and chat about the most recent events in dentistry.

The purpose of these meetings is to assemble the leading students of dental universities from all of Europe and also congregate the leading professors in the field of dentistry; who will not only hold lectures for dental students, but also discuss the most recent events in practical dentistry and dental research. Furthermore, it gives manufacturers of dental equipment the opportunity to display their latest products to dental students from all over Europe which will form their future clientele.

The EDSA was founded in Paris in November 1988 and since then it has been growing continuously. Representing over 65,000 students, the EDSA is among the largest European student associations in the field of dentistry.

The Faculty of Dentistry of RSU is proud to host the largest event for dental students yet in the Baltics.
