by: Natalia Martinez

The Nobel Biocare Global Symposium took place from June 23 to 26 in New York City. The Foundation for Oral Rehabilitation was there greeting colleagues, supporting the NEXT GEN Forum and celebrating their third anniversary.

Connecting with colleagues, old and new

One of the most valuable opportunities for members of the FOR community from around the globe to meet are scientific events. For this reason, FOR had a booth at the Nobel Biocare Global Symosium 2016, where they had the chance to meet both old friends and new colleagues interested in benefitting from the educational and scientific tools found on It was a pleasure for the FOR team to discuss and exchange with all of them on a wide variety of topics. Amongst others, they were glad to present their latest digital educational materials. Some examples include an e-paper on temporomandibular disorder management, a new tool to help predict the risk of peri-implant pathology, and their new 3D animations on bone resorption and implant drilling protocols.

Empowering the NEXT GEN

Since its inception, FOR has had a close relationship with young clinicians, with their website in particular offering them a platform to network and share their clinical work with the world. At the NEXT GEN forum, they were glad to support a group of 12 professionals who each shared their knowledge on cutting-edge topics in dentistry. From guided surgery and 3D printing, to soft tissue management with provisionals and dental photography geared towards patient case acceptance, the group astonished the audience with both their sophisticated clinical skills and presentation capabilities.
