Dentistry in the fast lane

by: Michael Stuart

520 dental professionals gathered at the BMW World in Munich (June 26-28) to shift their knowledge and skills up a gear.

Attendees at the sold-out Nobel Biocare DACH (Germany, Austria and Switzerland) Symposium could choose the sessions they attended from a program featuring over fifty speakers from ten different countries.

Under the theme “modern treatment concepts”, the event covered the entire treatment flow, from diagnosis to restoration and beyond.

At a fully booked pre-congress attendees got hands-on with the latest products and concepts in workshops and masterclasses led by some of the dental world’s top names.

Highlights also included a dedicated program for dental technicians and a forum dedicated to young speakers. A social event for participants was held among the iconic vehicles in the BMW museum.

The event also served as the inauguration of the Foundation for Oral Rehabilitation (FOR) chapter in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The launch of this new chapter was led by Chairman of the event Professor Friedrich Wilhelm Neukam. Endowed by Nobel Biocare, FOR an independent, international initiative that unites professionals from various disciplines to improve oral health care and support humanitarian leadership.

Attendee testimonials

Dr. Bastian Wessing, Aachen, Germany:
"I visited the Nobel Biocare DACH Symposium because of the combination of high-profile speakers and practical workshops. In their lineup of speakers Nobel Biocare brought together a who's who of dental experts, not just from the German-speaking countries but from all around the world.

“The program covered the latest scientific developments and how they are were related to day-to-day practice, allowing me to take home a lot of tips and tricks. There was a great social program too.

“I have previously been to many Nobel Biocare events outside Germany and I can say that they are superior. I would advise my colleagues to attend one. I'm now really looking forward to the announced D-A-CH meeting at the Nobel Biocare Symposium in New York in 2016."

Master Dental Technician, Christian Richter, Grieskirchen, Austria:
“The speaker line-up was extremely impressive! Personally, I was delighted with the practical and topical program for technicians, which was simply awesome. I think with NobelClinician we have one of the best planning systems to implement implant Prothetics. We are fit for a great future. I'm already lookin forward to a sequel, and I know that my peers feel the same way.”

Dr. Roberto Sleiter, Egerkingen, Switzerland:
"The organization, location and program were outstanding. Congrats to Nobel Biocare."
