In addition to our regular participation in continuing professional development events and similar activities, we keep in touch with the dental field and its specialties through personal memberships in dental professional associations.
The German Society of Dental, Oral and Craniomandibular Sciences (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Zahn-, Mund- und Kieferheilkunde, DGZMK), founded in 1859, is one of the oldest scienfific dental society. It is the umbrella organization for the various professional associations within the German dental scene. It coordinates the response of the dental community to scientific issues raised by politics and society at large and develops guidelines for dental treatment. The promotion of science and the spreading of knowledge is one if its core missions.
