today Nobel Biocare Global Symposium June 25, 2016

Nobel Biocare Global Symposium 3 news “The future is very bright for young implantologists” Emerging leaders of the dental profession meet at the NEXT GEN forum by Dental Tribune International n    Yesterday during the second day of its global symposium in New York, Nobel Bio- care hosted the NEXT GEN forum, a session specially dedicated to the next generation of clinicians. Together with periodontics and im- plant dentistry expert Dr. Isabella Rocchietta, Dr. José Manuel Navarro, who has already participated in the two prior global sympo- siums in 2010 and 2013, moderated the ses- sion. “I always enjoyed the fabulous scientific meeting in this tremendous city, and when I was asked to take part as a member of the scientific committee of this year’s meeting my response was clear,” Navarro told Dental Tribune International. At the session on Friday morning, which was organized in collaboration with the Foun- dation for Oral Rehabilitation, up-and-coming young dental leaders engaged in a lively discussion with their hosts and the audience. A total of 14 speakers up to the age of 40 were divided into three groups representing the different facets of implant dentistry—oral sur- gery, prosthetics and practice management. They presented new insights from their re- search and challenging patient cases, but had only a 12-minute time slot to get their mes- sage across. A considerable number of speakers were female surgeons, which reflects a workforce trend in dental implantology. Experts anticipate significant demographic changes in the dental work- force over the next few years. An increasing number of young dental professionals, and young women in particular, are enrolling in postgraduate courses in implantology today. Given this trend, Nobel Biocare is set to support young clinicians. “It is very import- ant for us, especially for my leadership team and me, to develop better programs for the next generation of customers. We want to help them grow their businesses and adapt our solutions,” said Hans Geiselhöringer, President of Nobel Biocare and Dental Imaging, at the opening of the session. He further disclosed that Nobel Biocare will kick off at least one program focusing on the next generation of implant dentists in the near future. Navarro, who is also the current chair- man of the European Association for Osseo- integration (EAO) Junior Committee, believes that meetings like the Nobel Biocare Global Symposium provide a great opportunity for networking and team building among young and like-minded professionals in the field. “While we can learn and benefit from the experiences of well-established key opinion leaders in implantology, I believe that it is equally important to listen to the younger generations that are coming up with robust training and a lot of energy to our field,” Na- varro said. “It is from this younger clinicians that we get new out-of-the-box ideas and con- cepts that initiate real innovation.” Comparing the way of practicing den- tistry between the older and younger gener- ation of professionals, Navarro notes: “The evidenced-based literature today supports a lot of the treatments that were considered ex- perimental, if not crazy, in former days. In ad- dition, treatment approaches have shifted dra- matically from rehabilitating the edentulous patients with removable prostheses to very sophisticated, esthetically demanding, micro- milimetric implant dentistry were at times we forget the essence of the treatment per se, were patient expectations our own personal fulfillment should not take over.” He continues: “New technolo- gies, such as digital dentistry are growing at an exponen- tially rapid rate and it is becoming increas- ingly difficult to stay up to date for us dental professionals. However, every clinician should know what technology will suit his or her environment, everyday workflow, set up, clin- ical layout and, with that in mind, he or she should embrace that technology that will help provide better, faster, more precise, long-last- ing treatments to more patients.” “I think that the future is very bright for young implantologists as both dentists and patients benefit from the knowledge and technologies we have today,” Navarro con- cluded. “Let’s explore the doors that have al- ready been opened to us and continue open- ing new ones, always reminding ourselves the essential of providing our patients with the best possible solution available to the best of our capacity.” 7 Nobel Biocare Services AG P.O.
