NFH-Congress 2015 at Sandbjerg Gods – in text and fotos

Thursday th. 27. August, NFH-Congress-2015 started midday when the executive committee met in the diningroom at  Sandbjerg Gods and had lunch together. For subsequently to have our annual meeting about current matters, among others to deal with the Finish Section having big organizational troubles at this moment. So big that we had to choose another country to arrange the next Congress 2017, and luckily the Islandic chairwoman with support promised to take over the Presidency and the coming NFH-Congress.

Later in the evening all participants for the Congress arrived one by one joining a very nice Get-to-gether-party.

Early next morning The NFH-Congress 2015 started in the big auditorium of Sandbjerg. We were about 55 participants learning about PAIN-IN-PERSPECTIVES. The Executive Committee had invited 5 young engaged persons from the dental teams from each Nordic Country, and young dentists from Norway, Sweden and Denmark took part at the Congress this year.

We also had invited 5 members to give lectures at the following NFH-40 years Anniversary Conference, and because of this occasion very dear friends turned up and had a great reunion with each other and with the rest of us.

The last congress-day, Saturday the lecturers continued until lunch, still concerning the theme PAIN-IN-PERSPECTIVES, and a lot of reflections to take home to consider to convert to new practices in our clinics with special-need-patients.
