Annual Implant Symposia Draw Dentists from 23 Countries

Three hundred and fifty dentists from 23 countries attended a pair of implant symposia held at NYUCD in November, the most diverse group ever to attend the events, which are cosponsored annually by the Ashman Department of Periodontology & Implant Dentistry, in collaboration with the Advanced Programs for International Dentists and the Linhart Continuing Dental Education Program.

The Implant Alumni Symposium and the Continuing Dental Education Implant Symposium, held on November 11 and 12, respectively, drew dentists from Spain, Greece, Brazil, Germany, Guatemala, Portugal, Russia, Saudi Arabia, the Republic of Andorra, France, Ireland, Italy, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Colombia, Iran, Japan, Libya, South Korea, Trinidad and Tobago, Venezuela, Taiwan, and Thailand.

"These events are internationally known for high-quality presentations on topics ranging from bone grafting to complications associated with single-implant esthetics," said Dr. Stuart Hirsch, Vice Dean for International Initiatives & Development, "and this year’s symposia were no exception."
