The author presents an historical survey of the development of the Fédération Dentaire Internationale. Beginning with its foundation by Charles Godon in 1900 he describes the growth of the Federation as an organization of the dental profession which continued despite the interruption of two world wars. The most important aims and events of the first 50 years are presented in chronological sequence. In the period of the last 25 years--after the London Congress of 1952---the main emphasis is placed on describing the present structure and objectives of the Federation. Brief reflections on the Federation of today conclude the article.
