European Regional Organisation of the Fédération Dentaire Internationale: Representing and supporting member organisations from all European countries

Welcome to ERO-FDI

Resolution of the ERO Plenary Session April 2022 in Bucharest

We express our full solidarity with the people of Ukraine and with the Ukrainian dentists.

For many of us still unimaginable at the beginning of the year, a brutal war has been raging in the middle of Europe for more than two months. The invasion of Ukraine by Russian forces and the shelling of cities with rockets and artillery, as well as aerial bombardments, have now cost countless lives and caused millions of people to leave their homes and flee to other countries.

While those leaving Ukraine are mostly women and children, their husbands, fathers, brothers and sons remain behind to fight with great bravery for Ukraine in order that it continues to exist as a democratically governed free country. Their courage and determination deserve the greatest respect.

The European Regional Organisation of the FDI World Dental Federation (ERO) declares its full solidarity with the inhabitants of this fiercely contested country and especially with the dentists in Ukraine and their practice teams. The willingness to support the refugees endures and ERO appeals to colleagues in its member states and organisations to continue actively to support the donation and aid campaigns, some of which have been initiated by the dental profession.

COVID-19

We are all experiencing tremendous amount of difficulty as the impact of the COVID-19 VIRUS is felt all around the world characterised as a pandemic. This is an unprecedented situation and each of us is trying to manage not only our priorities, personal lives but also our our patients’ wellnesses.

 

Our first priority and professional responsibility is for sure to maintain the safety and well-being of our patients, staff and all related communities. On the other side we as the front-line health professionals have the most significant risk to expose the diseases and the infection and especially to tremendous risk of 2019-nCoV infection. With the rapid ongoing spread of COVID-19 and the incredible speed with the threatening situation, we as the dental profession should adapt our working models in accordance with the ongoing guidance through the evidence-based recommendations of the scientific professional organisations, Centers of Disease Control, the World Health Organisations and through our local governmental health departments to play great role in preventing the transmission of the infection. 

 

With all our strength together among our professional, we believe we will overcome these threatening situation with the most possible extra precautions to respond to a possible coronavirus case. Relying on the basis of the relevant contemporary guidelines and latest conducted research, As ERO we recommend for our professionals to treat only dental emergency cases with the highest precautions regarding infection prevention.
