The International Federation of Esthetic Dentistry (IFED) was founded in 1994 by the American Academy of Esthetic Dentistry, European Academy of Esthetic Dentistry and the Japanese Academy of Esthetic Dentistry. IFED’s purpose is to contribute to the progress and development of worldwide esthetic and oral health and to enhance communication between member organizations. IFED holds a world scientific meeting every two years and hosted by a member academy. Delegates attend from all around the world.
IFED MISSION STATEMENT
Mission Statement: IFED’s mission is to contribute to the progress and development of education in Esthetic dentistry worldwide. We’re committed to providing support and enhancing the exchange of information across all borders as well as communication between all member organizations to promote esthetic oral health. In this respect IFED is a non-profit organization, meaning that no financial gain will be apportioned to the individual subscribers of member Academies / Societies nor to the governing officers of the IFED Executive Council.
To encourage countries to establish an academy of esthetic dentistry along IFED guidelines.
To help coordinate and publicize both world and national meetings on esthetic dentistry.
To assist member and forming chapters in producing the best meetings possible including assistance in obtaining speakers.
IFED SUPPORT TO ITS MEMBER ACADEMIES
IFED can provide guidance in establishing an academy through:
Providing examples of academy constitutions and bylaws.
Helping member and applicant academies obtain some of the world’s top clinicians to lecture at their meetings.
This usually requires planning several years in advance, since the most sought-after clinicians schedule their travel far in advance. Both IFED officers and member academy representatives can be most helpful in contacting prominent speakers or suggesting others to help the academy reach its potential.
