In 2014 a new national society was established in Belgium: the interdisciplinary BElgian Dental Sleep Medicine Academy (iBEDSMA). The concept of iBEDSMA will be explicitly towards the multidisciplinary approach of sleep-disordered breathing. The board members do believe that this concept will be the added value of this Belgian platform, and its unique selling position.

In the past, with iBEDSMA we have been able to organize a successful symposium in Knokke in 2014 and also in 2016. In the future (2017) we plan a third two-day symposium again in the hotel La Réserve in Knokke (september 22 & 23, 2017).
