Nobel Biocare Symposia 2015 kicking off in April

by: Frederic Love

Collectively, the Nobel Biocare Symposia 2015 will serve as a year-long tribute to the first clinical application of osseointegration fifty years ago. Following in Brånemark’s footsteps at each of these meetings, Nobel Biocare will be celebrating scientific progress by offering an array of educational opportunities and an introduction to the latest innovations in the field.

An unforgetable experience

No two Nobel Biocare Symposia are alike, yet commendation and praise from previous participants are persuasively similar. 

“At a Nobel Biocare Symposium you can not only delve into topics of local and regional interest,” said New York participant Dr. Carlos Moglianesi, “but also explore those that matter in the world of dentistry globally.” 

In a similar vein, Dr. Salomón Fainsilber—attending a symposium in Mexico—commented: “Nobel Biocare raised the level of a national symposium here to that of a first-class international event.”

First for 50 years in 2015

Nobel Biocare Symposia give participants an opportunity to learn more about a broad range of new products, and how they can best be put to use. The creos regenerative solutions and the NobelProcera ASC (angulated screw channel) Abutment—and accompanying Omnigrip tooling—were big hits at last year’s symposia.

This year, advanced posterior solutionsNobelClinican updates, and a variety of new components will be in focus.

Bringing symposia and training together

When asked at the end of the Nobel Biocare Symposium in Los Angeles last year why he would recommend similar symposia to others, Dr. Perry Hollenbeak replied simply, “Because they are a tremendous gathering of knowledge and honesty.” Another participant, Dr. Robert Wolf, was apparently of the same mind. “This has been such an awesome learning event! And with great, timely information from leading clinicians!”

Master Dental Technician Oliver Krieger of Nuremberg, Germany, attended the German-Austrian-Swiss Symposium in 2014. He subsequently wrote to Nobel Biocare to say: “I find the exchange between technology and dentistry very exciting—for me it’s a theme of the future. Nobel Biocare brings symposia and training together with distinguished speakers. It’s great to spend time with colleagues in this pool of knowledge, sharing experiences and collecting new ones to take home. It is also interesting to learn about the science behind Nobel Biocare’s products.”

"Above all, they select the right content!"

The needs of dental patients for better esthetics, improved function and greater confidence are the same all over the world. This is why the company has located these symposia at sites accessible to customers, wherever they live and work. There will be meetings in eight cities on four continents this year.

“I have been to many Nobel Biocare events and have always had good experiences,” said Dr. Bernd Quantius of Mönchengladbach, Germany, recently. “The organization is very good, but above all they select the right content—that’s why I always recommend that my colleagues take the time to attend a Nobel Biocare Symposium.”
