Background

The Asian and Oceanian Federation of Conservative Dentistry (AOFCD) is established in needs of collaboration and cooperation between countries from Asian and Oceanian region in oral health. In Asia and Oceania, although the economy growth has been developed and the population proportion has been highest rate in the world, there was no formal network before the formation of AOFCD.

The first preparatory meeting for ConsAsia meeting was held in Seoul, Korea on Oct 21, 2016. Representatives of Australia, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Korea, Singapore, New Zealand, and Taiwan participated in the preparatory meeting and agreed on the following items: the ConsAsia meeting will be held in autumn biennially; the first ConsAsia meeting will be held in Seoul on November 8-10, 2019; the Asian and Oceanian Federation of Conservative Dentistry (AOFCD) needs to be founded; member countries should support the hosting country with speakers, presenters, and participants; the scope of the meeting needs to be included in the bylaws of AOFCD; the main theme of the first meeting will be suggested by the organizing committee of the hosting country and will be discussed. The representatives who attended at the preparatory meeting agreed to organize a society for the Asian and Oceanian countries to collaborate in the field of Conservative Dentistry. It was called ConsAsia, like ConsEuro.

The academic societies in the field of Conservative Dentistry in the Asian and Oceanian countries would form a network for international academic collaboration in research and publication as well as mutual cooperation in education, research, and clinical practice for improvement of oral health in Asia and Oceania.

With the help of European Federation of Conservative Dentistry (EFCD), we are revising the draft of the constitution and by-laws. We set up local organizing committee, and decided the venue for the first ConsAsia meeting. We are going to decide the main theme of the first meeting and are doing our best to recruit possible participants. We hope to invite the participants who agree with us on the concept of a ‘ConsAsia’ and ‘AOFCD’.
