2018 BioHorizons Global Education Tour (GET) "Kicks off" in Croatia

The 2018 BioHorizons Global Education Tour (GET) offers cutting-edge insights on implant therapy through presentations by leading clinical experts in six countries around the globe. The tour kicked off in May in Dubrovnik, Croatia with participation from 420 dental professionals representing more than 40 countries.

A spokesperson said: “Attendees had the opportunity to experience innovative clinical solutions and forward-looking evidence-based protocols that will help them achieve new levels of patient care and practice efficiency.

“The educational program, driven by internationally recognised speakers, focused on the management of advanced surgical procedures, regenerative solutions in the aesthetic zone, restorative results, and the world of digital dentistry.

“In addition, a pre-congress workshop with a hands-on component was offered featuring the BioHorizons TeethXpress® protocol. TeethXpress® provides a full-arch treatment continuum including prosthetic planning for immediate loading cases, surgical procedures for achieving high primary stability, techniques for the fabrication of a screw retained provisional, prevention and management of complications, and fast-tracking of the prosthetic workflow.”

Steve Boggan, President and Chief Executive Officer of BioHorizons, delivered opening remarks and highlighted some of the current trends that are changing implant dentistry.

“We can see that digital dentistry is rapidly replacing traditional restorative pathways and that procedures are getting less invasive,” he stated. “As one of the leading companies in the dental implant community, BioHorizons is committed to driving aesthetic implantology forward through science, innovation, and education.”

With topics covering digital workflow, immediate loading, tissue regeneration, aesthetics, full-arch solutions, and multidisciplinary teams, the 2018 Global Education Tour addressed a wide range of implant dentistry challenges.
