profession and take a lead where appropriate. This is particularly
important at EU level, where decisions will impact on the practice of
dentistry in the UK. Meeting with colleagues from other countries helps
inform our strategic thinking, share experiences and team up, where
appropriate, with other similar organisations for co-operation. We are
also pleased to be involved in activities that contribute to the
advancement of health in developing countries. The world is becoming an
ever-smaller place, and close co-operation with our peers in other
countries is beneficial and inevitable.
