    CED President meets with EU Health Commissioner

    On 25 May, the CED President Dr Marco Landi met with the Commissioner for Health Dr Vytenis Andriukaitis. Dr Landi presented the CED work in the areas of health workforce, antimicrobial resistance and public health (sugar). He also shared the CED concerns with regard to standardisation of healthcare delivery and corporate ownership of dental practice.
    The Commissioner expressed an understanding of these concerns. As CED President stressed, just like patients, treatments cannot be standardised but should be guided by the evidence-based expertise and professional ethics of the dentist. Dr Landi also insisted on the importance of independence of dental practitioner in case of corporate-owned dental practices.  
    On the topics of health workforce, antimicrobial resistance and sugar, all agreed that these are areas where dentists can make a significant contribution.
