It is a great honor for the School of Dentistry, Mae Fah Luang University, to be hosting the 19th International Scientific Conference of the Dental Faculty Consortium of Thailand (DFCT 2022) this November 2-4, 2022. This year is especially auspicious as it marks the 10th year anniversary of the School of Dentistry. This year’s topic is on “Novel Challenges in Dental Practice and Research”. The conference will be held both online and onsite.
On this occasion and on behalf of the School of Dentistry, Mae Fah Luang University, I would like to welcome all the members, delegates, speakers, and participants from 17 Thai dental schools to this scientific conference. My hearty welcome is also extended to participants from dental schools abroad.
The conference is full of academic activities because several world-renowned keynote speakers, both local and international, from various disciplines, such as bone and pulp tissue engineering, periodontal innate host defense, microRNA-based gene therapy, and regenerative endodontics, will present you with frontier research as well as cutting-edge technologies.
I envision that this scientific conference will be a venue for enriching discussion and for dental researchers to get together to share their ideas for future collaborative research.
I also hope and recommend that you take advantage of the nice weather in Chiang Rai to sightsee and experience the northern Thai culture and warm hospitality. I look forward to greeting you all in Chiang Rai this November.
