IFD LogoMembership of the International Federation (IFD) consists of national Denturist organizations from around the world interested in providing a forum for the promotion of the profession. The gradual spreading of the profession is proof of the strength and efficiency of the IFD and the cooperation extended from one national Association to another in spite of the daunting opposition presented by the monopoly holder. Denturists have a committed tenacity to meet the challenge and have successful examples of international colleagues as inspirational motivation. Denturism looks toward building the international support, which will assist in meeting the professional and inter-professional challenges of the twenty-first century. Denturists work toward redefining relationships with other dental health care professions, and addressing issues like legislated monopolies and will continue to carve out their role and responsibilities in terms of Denturism.
