Event news  – 




The International Symposium 2022 is taking place from 13 - 15 October 2022 in Munich, Germany; having achieved much success in Orlando and scheduled stops in Munich and Rome. What sounds like the succession of global cities offering the center stage for big fashion events, is in fact yet another stop in the calendar of events of the Oral Reconstruction Foundation (OR Foundation). After the success of the Oral Reconstruction International Symposium in Orlando in May 2022 with 650 attendees, and with the Oral Reconstruction Global Symposium in Rome in March 2023 already in mind, the next stop for the who-is-who in dental implantology will be Munich this autumn.

Carefully concerted stage by eminent global experts
While innovation is driven by people who have a dream to improve, in the end who is better positioned to show what reality is, than a scientist presenting evidence-based data? The eminent scientific committee and internationally renowned speakers vouch for a differentiated and pioneering program, addressing dental professionals from all walks of implantology. The Symposium, in combination with the 7. Camlog Zahntechnik-Kongress (7th Camlog Dental Technician Congress) on Saturday, 15 October 2022, showcases success, which are important for the fruitful outcome of every intervention for the benefit of the patient.

The Co-chairpersons Prof. Frank Schwarz, Frankfurt, and Prof. Katja Nelson, Freiburg, were able to attract an illustrious group to manage the Scientific Committee: Dr. Mario Beretta, Italy; Dr. S. Marcus Beschnidt, Germany; MDT Vincent Fehmer, Switzerland; Prof. Gerald Krennmair, Austria; MDT Otto Prandtner, Munich; Prof. Mariano Sanz, Spain; Dr. Alex Schär, Switzerland; Prof. Michael Stimmelmayr, Germany.

Mouthwatering topics for all tastes
The Symposium starts off on Thursday, 13 October 2022, with 16 pre-congress workshops, catering topics for all tastes. The Friday, 14 October 2022, is dedicated to four scientific sessions, covering the topics (1) Timing in implant dentistry, (2) Treatment concepts for challenging situations, (3) Treatment concepts for elderly or edentulous patients, and (4) Advances of the digital Workflow in a team approach.

The programme on Saturday, 15 October 2022, begins with the young clinician’s research session (5) supported by OR Foundation. “This is a topic close to my heart and one of the pillars of the OR Foundation”, says Fernando Guerra, moderator of the session and member of the OR Foundation Research Committee, and in his function Professor at the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Coimbra, Portugal. “While I personally find it very rewarding to give young researchers a chance to progress in their career and give them center stage at a big event such as the Oral Reconstruction International Symposium, it is vital for the progress of science, and to ensure the continuity of such high caliber events in the future. This is where young professionals get a chance to network on an international level and gain first-hand experience as speakers.”

The scientific programme concludes midday on Saturday, 15 October 2022, with three more sessions, (6) State-of-the-art tissue regeneration, (7) Mastering hard and soft tissue outcome, and (8) Solutions for Demanding Situations.
