The iADH is delighted to invite you to share your research at iADH 2022 Paris
and to participate in the iADH research competition.

Abstracts are invited on the theme of Special Care Dentistry (SCD).

Within the iADH definition, SCD concerns those individuals with an activity restriction, a health condition and/or a disability that directly or indirectly affects their oral health, within the personal and environmental context of that individual. This population may include patients of all ages, disabled persons, medically compromised patients, mental health patients, patients with dental fear, frail older persons, prison populations, refugees, homeless persons, etc.

Topic categories include:

  • Clinical research

  • Public health or social sciences research

  • Basic or biological sciences research

  • Education research

  • Case studies

Submissions are encouraged both from dentists and the wider SCD team – physicians, speech therapists, hygienists, nurses, educators…


All submitted abstracts will be peer reviewed by the iADH Scientific committee using pre-established criteria. The Scientific Committee will make the final decision on category of submission; acceptance or rejection; presentation format (oral or poster); acceptance into an awards competition; and selection for publication. Only iADH members are eligible for awards.

All submitted abstracts must be accompanied by a declaration of conflict of interest and a statement of ethical approval / patient consent as appropriate.
