Nobel Biocare Symposia: "I can really make use of the new knowledge!"

by: Frederic Love

Of the eight symposia that Nobel Biocare has organized for 2015, only one remains for the fall. Colleagues who have attended the first ones say you have something to look forward to if you plan to attend the London event.

From Goa, India, to Sydney, Australia, the year’s first six Nobel Biocare Symposia have come and gone in quick succession during the spring and summer. 

Soon—this autumn—osseointegration experts and novices alike will be converging on London to share experiences and learn more about recent advances in the world of dentistry.

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. Advanced posterior solutions, NobelClinician updates, and a variety of new components have been in focus at each of this year’s symposia. The upcoming meeting will build further upon this foundation.

The scientific program will offer lectures and other classes covering a wide variety of interests for every member of the treatment team. Clinicians, dental technicians and other team members will be able to choose topics from a broad selection of challenging sessions.

Master classes and hands-on learning opportunities are sure to be highlights of these meetings for many participants and—if previous experience can be a guide—lectures on patient communication will also prove to be popular with the attendees. 

During these presentations, experienced clinicians will share advice on how to make patients feel comfortable about the treatment plan in order to gain patient acceptance.

Praise from earlier attendees

Dr. Robert Schroering of Louisville, Kentucky, USA, travelled all the way to India for this year’s first symposium and came away impressed. 

“I truly believe in Nobel Biocare’s implants and their commitment to innovation,” he said at the end of the Goa Symposium. “That is why they are on top. My hat’s off to the Nobel Biocare team for running such a wonderful conference. It was a joy for me to participate.”

An Indian colleague, Dr. Sanjay Kalra of Chandigarh, fully agreed. “There was a lot to take home for everyone, especially the beginners. It gave me great satisfaction when I could do a boneaugmentation case exactly [as it was] demonstrated on stage. Overall it was a great experience for all of us!”

A participant at the Nordic Symposium held recently in Stockholm, Dr. Mobin Fakhary, said that he especially enjoyed the interactivity of the meeting.

“I really enjoyed the hands-on sessions. But it was also great that I got the chance to ask the lecturers for clinical tips and tricks and how to deal with other challenges that I’ve experienced.

“I would definitely recommend these symposia to my colleagues. I’ve learned a lot and feel that I really can make use of the new knowledge in my own work with my patients. I’m now able to offer them more treatment options than I ever could before.”
