Highly topical lectures, prominent speakers and lively discussions made up the first ITI Congress Switzerland. It was attended by more than 500 professionals and specialists in implant dentistry and took place in Biel against the magnificent backdrop of the lake and surrounding hills.
The congress dealt with the life cycle of an implant and covered aspects from treatment planning to possible complications. Speakers from universities, specialists from private practice and dental technicians took part in the program. Representatives from the Universities of Basel, Bern, Geneva and Zurich involved in peri-implantitis treatment elaborated their position and contributed to a spirited round table discussion. An industry exhibition rounded off the successful congress and provided participants with valuable information on current products and trends.
"This was the first time that an ITI national congress was held in Switzerland and we were very happy with the way it went", says Prof. Dr. Nicola Zitzmann, ITI Education Delegate Switzerland. "It provided an excellent opportunity for Swiss ITI Members and Fellows as well as other dental professionals to get up to date on the latest developments in implant dentistry."
