A propos

The aim of the World Federation for Laser Dentistry (WFLD) is to serve as a non-profit medium for the exchange, advancement and dissemination of scientific knowledge, elated to the use of lasers for application and research in the oral and dental environment.

Membership is encouraged from all those interested in research, development and use of laser technology related to dentistry, biology, medicine and surgery, so as to develop lines of communication between all phases of laser technology with the objective of improving standards in laser dentistry, furthering education, research and development and providing meetings for the exchange of ideas and methodology in the field of laser dentistry.

WFLD (before 2006 the ISLD) congresses are held every two years, and attract international delegates from around the world. The first congress took place in 1988 in Tokyo, Japan, under the direction of Professor Emeritus Hajime Yamamoto, who had the foresight to recognize the need for an international event to bring together the world experts on laser dentistry. The WFLD/ISLD has gone from strength to strength thanks to expert guidance of the subsequent presidents, Professor Jacques Melcer of Paris, France, Professor Lynn Powell of Salt Lake City, USA, Professor John W. Frame of England, Professor Loh Hong Sai of Singapore and Professor Isao Ishikawa of Japan. Professor Samir Nammour of Belgium, Professor Norbert Gutknecht of Germany and Professor Aldo Brugnera Junior of Brazil.

  • <p>It is an absolute delight to host <b>the 15th Congress of the World Federation for Laser Dentistry </b>(WFLD 2016) in Japan. <br><br><b>The World Federation for Laser Dentistry (WFLD)</b> is an organization of academic societies with an aim of promoting oral health through developments in laser dentistry and dental care, and is comprised of 54 member countries worldwide. In addition to academic activities, the WFLD is also committed to educational activities in countries around the world, such as through training and lectures, for the purpose of disseminating safe and appropriate directions for the use of dental lasers. <br><br>The predecessor of the current WFLD is the International Society for Laser in Dentistry (ISLD) which was established in 1988. On August 5-6 of that year, the world’s first International Congress of Laser Dentistry was held in Tokyo, at which Hajime Yamamoto, professor emeritus at Tokyo Medical and Dental University, was appointed as the ISLD’s first president. The society has since been active as an international organization for laser dentistry. Later, the 8th ISLD Congress / 14th Annual Meeting of the Japanese Society for Laser Dentistry (JSLD) were held in Yokohama on July 31 – August 2, 2002, under the leadership of Isao Ishikawa, professor emeritus at Tokyo Medical and Dental University. WFLD 2016 marks the third congress to be held in Japan, and the first in 14 years. JSLD has also served as a full member of the WFLD. <br><br>The WFLD holds an international congress at a major city in the world once every two years. On this occasion of hosting the 15th Congress of the WFLD in Japan, we have adopted a theme of “Light to brighten the future” in an effort to move ahead from existing laser dentistry and dental care, and to look at new developments by extensively incorporating “light” into diagnosis and treatment. The planned program includes: 1. invited lectures, 2. symposiums, 3. workshops, 4. oral sessions and poster sessions, 5. exhibitions, and 6. seminars. The congress will bring together laser specialists in engineering and medical fields, including dentistry, from countries all around the world to deliver presentations on their latest scientific knowledge. It is hoped that the congress will also be an opportunity for further advancement of academic research activities and clinical improvement, as well as herald the beginning of new development of medical devices and new expansion of the industry in Japan.<br>We are sincerely looking forward to seeing all of you at the WFLD2016 in Japan.<br></p>
