Glasgow hosts 3000 dentists for conference

The largest gathering of dental implantologists converges on Glasgow this week.

It’s the annual conference of the EAO – the European Association of Osseointegration and 3000 dentists will visit my home city.

As the 2010 event is staged in my city means I can stay at home with the family but attend some very interesting lectures and seminars with many of the world’s leading experts in dental implant work.

It’s a huge event. The four day congress focuses on science related to dental implants but it promises something for dental practitioners everywhere.

Leading experts will make presentations on topics ranging from aesthetics and the use of new materials, to options for implant restorations and the growing use of digital equipment.

“The conference aims to bridge the gap between science and clinical practice,” says EAO Scientific Chairman and EAO President elect, Paul Stone.

There will also be a wide range of other attractions including master classes, short oral communications, a poster presentation, EAO Research Prize Competitions in Clinical and Basic Research, and a series of pre-congress ‘step-by-step’ courses. There will be simultaneous translation of the presentations in French, German, Spanish and Italian.
