In 2014 a new national society was established in Belgium: the interdisciplinary BElgian Dental & Surgery Sleep Medicine Academy (iBEDSSMA). The concept of iBEDSSMA 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 iBEDSSMA we have been able to organize successful symposiums in Knokke, Brussels, Dinant, Antwerp and Bruges. In the future (2019) we plan a fourth two-day symposium again in the hotel La Réserve in Knokke (september 13 & 14, 2019). Early bird registration for this event (untill December 31, 2018) includes iBEDSSMA membership fee for 2019.
