Oral Reconstruction Global Symposium in Rotterdam

Published: 26/10/2017

The Oral Reconstruction Foundation drives progress in implant dentistry and related areas, for the benefit of the patients. Education and training are the Foundation’s utmost priorities and are realised through the organisation of top-class events. The Foundation intends to build on previous successes with its Oral Reconstruction Global Symposium 2018 on April 26-28 of next year.

In Rotterdam, implant dentistry topics will be presented and discussed in theory and practice through practical workshops, scientific lectures, and podium and audience discussions. Under the theme “The Future of the Art of Implant Dentistry”, a diversity of education and training will be offered thanks to the combination of instructive workshops, an informative scientific program with top-class speakers, an innovative event concept, and a high-end evening event for networking with opinion leaders and colleagues.

Hands-on workshops

The day before the symposium, 12 workshops will be offered in German, English, Spanish and Chinese. The topics will include, amongst others, 3D planning, digital workflow in practice, treatment options for peri-implantitis and much more. A workshop on tunnel techniques and surgical procedures, led by renowned American lecturer Dr. Edward P. Allen, will be a special highlight.

Evidence-based science

The two days of the symposium are divided into eight blocks. The topics cover everything that characterises and is important for “The Future of the Art of Implant Dentistry”. Over 55 internationally recognised speakers will be presenting a wide spectrum of topics, ranging from the latest research findings to peri-implant soft tissue management, to ceramic implants and digital workflow. The symposium will conclude with interactive case presentations about problems, complications, and lessons learned.

Professional exchange in a relaxed atmosphere

Professional networking is also an important factor at the symposium. On the first evening of the symposium the theme is “Let’s celebrate King’s day!”, which will encourage team spirit and professional exchange in a relaxed, cheerful setting, which has become a tradition.
