Hot Potato Day
Hot Potato Day


09 sep. 2023 09:00 – 17:00

Crowne Plaza Brussels Airport, Leonardo Da Vincilaan 4, 1831 Brussel, Belgium


In the field of equine dentistry several controversial, sometimes even provoking and delicate topics exist. Different opinions can be found across the world. But even within one country or veterinary community opinions can differ astonishingly. We call these subjects ‘Hot Potatoes’.

Equine welfare, which is of paramount importance for the NCED, goes hand in hand with training and education veterinary professionals. Therefore we have invited some of the most experienced equine dentists in Europe to present their different opinions and to have a debate where we can learn from each other.

On the 9th of September the NCED will organize a discussion day in the diplomatic center of Europe, Brussels (Belgium).  It is our intention to create a room for an open discussion. All speakers are given the opportunity to present their opinion on a specific topic, followed by a round table conversation which will be strictly moderated. The audience will be invited to participate in the discussion. The discussion will be done in a civilized way with respect for each other's opinions, although they might differ dramatically.

To prevent bloody melees, we have a match judge with yellow and red cards, and will throw out speakers or participants that won't succumb or obey the warnings or become dangerously agressive ;-)

We will end this very interesting day with a peace-making and friend-making amazing barbeque in the evening sun at the luxurious terrace of the Crowne Plaza hotel. 

Last day for registration was 6th of August. If you missed your chance to register but want to join, please email us at to put your name on the waiting list.
