The inauguration of the International Academy of Contemporary Dentistry (iACD) and the First Greater China Symposium was held at the luxurious Kowloon Shangri-La Hotel on November 11-13, 2016. The Congress attracted over 450 Dentists from across Asia and the United States, which included over 225 Dentists attending the pre-congress hands on workshop courses the day prior to the meeting.

Professor Jon B. Suzuki, newly installed First President of iACD opened the Congress outlining the mission and objectives of the embryonic Asian dental organization. Professor Jon B. Suzuki described new trends for contemporary dentists who wish to further understand the relationship between oral health and systemic diseases and conditions.

The Dinner Gala attended by over 400 Participants and guests took place in the Harbour Room, Kowloon Shangri-La Hotel. Professor Jon B. Suzuki and Dr. Steven ZG Xue along with Dr. Bor-Jia Kuo, served as Masters of Ceremonies for the delightful stage entertainment.
