Japan Association of Microscopic Dentistry



Greetings from congress president of the 17th annual meeting & scientific session of JAMD
 The 17th Annual Meeting of the Japan Association of Microscopic Dentistry (JAMD), which has been postponed in 2020, will be held at Centennial Hall Kyushu University School of Medicine in Fukuoka on April 23–25, 2021.

 We have been looking forward to seeing participating members and having discussion about the usefulness and development of microscope dentistry again. We also would have liked the participants to enjoy the sightseeing and food in Hakata (Fukuoka), which has been attracting attention as an energetic and hot city called the gateway to Kyushu and Asia in recent years.

 We are now preparing to hold the meeting in Fukuoka and/or web meeting in parallel just in case of Covid-19 outbreak again. The theme of the conference will remain unchanged and will continue to be “Next Stage of Microscope Dentistry” includes the meaning of the dawn of the next generation of microscopic dentistry in many ways.

 The following contents planned for the 17th annual meeting in 2020; the annual pre-conferences, special lectures, symposiums, general presentations, luncheon seminars, and so on, will be carried over to the next year's meeting program. In particular, one of the symposiums is planned to have lecture and demonstration of “My Style” by inviting up-and-coming performers from the viewpoint of dentists and dental hygienists on how microscopes are used in clinical practice.

 We hope that this conference in 2021 will be used as a forum for exchanging information and opinions about future microscope dentistry, which will lead to the future development and enhancement of dentistry. We hope that participants will deepen their studies on microscope dentistry in Fukuoka. We look forward to the participation of not only members but also many dentistry professionals
