Today, Turkish Dentistry, with its organization, scientific level and its industry, has reached to the power and maturity in the international scale to compete with the entire industrialized countries. The competitive capacity and the vision acquired are increasing our expectations for the future.

Turkish Dental Association entered into a long-termed endeavour for this aim following its establishment; and has become a prestigious professional organization well known with its mission and international relations, both in its region and in the globe.

On behalf of our country, in order to reach our target which we have determined, Turkish Dental Association has taken a leading role by improving the unity and by displaying the conjugate movement decision with Dental Faculties, Scientific Dental Societies, Dental Equipment Industrialist and Businessmen Society and Dental Technicians Chambers, who are the components of our profession.

In this context, besides its active memberships in FDI and ERO, Turkish Dental Association continues its highest-level professional solidarity with Balkan countries, Turkic Republics, Pakistan, Iran, Iraq, Syria and Arab countries.
