NEW YORK, USA: Yesterday during the second day of its global symposium in New York, Nobel Biocare hosted the NEXT GEN forum, a session specially dedicated to the next generation of clinicians. Together with Dr. Isabella Rocchietta, Dr. José Manuel Navarro, who has already participated in the two prior global symposiums in 2010 and 2013, moderated the session.
Since the very beginning, Nobel Biocare has focused on edentulous solutions, helping those who need it most. For over half a century now, this dedication to treating edentulism has remained unwavering, even in the face of skepticism, criticism and copycat products. There was a time when people doubted the efficacy of the All-on-4 treatment concept. Now, 12 years and hundreds of thousands of patients later, we can be proud that we stayed the course.
NEW YORK, USA; The program of this year’s Nobel Biocare Global Symposium was designed to fit the needs of each and every individual participant. While the general sessions provide attendees with an idea of one of the themes evolving around Nobel Biocare’s product solutions addressed at this conference—treatment refi nement, excellence in esthetics and challenging clinical situations—the master classes educate those who are interested in delving further into these themes.
NEW YORK, USA: Yesterday, the 2016 Nobel Biocare Global Symposium opened its doors to dental professionals from all over the world in the heart of New York. Held for the third time, the event promises to be the implant dentistry event of the year. A continuous increase in demand for dental implant treatments as a result of growing consumer awareness, the ageing population, growing accessibility, as well as greater product availability and other influencing factors, has accelerated the demand and need for education in this field over the past decade.
A new study conducted by leading materials scientist Prof. J. Robert Kelly has confirmed that not all dental implant restorations are created equal. In this interview, Kelly discusses the research, which has very recently been published in the International Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Implants.1 The findings make for positive reading for NobelProcera customers.
The program for this year’s Nobel Biocare Global Symposium offers a rich variety of lectures, master classes and hands-on courses focusing on new ways to enhance implant treatment, apply digital dentistry and attain clinical excellence. Prior to the event, Dental Tribune Online spoke with scientific committee chairmen Drs. Peter Wöhrle and Bertil Friberg about the event’s different themes and sessions, which aim to address current opportunities and challenges for dental professionals.
It surprises me how often I meet orthodontists who bring up the challenges of hiring great employees for their practice. Finding and retaining good people can be hard. In fact, mis-hiring is far more costly than most of us realize. For example, you hire someone who leaves after only four months on the job; you may think that your loss is the four months of salary for that employee.
