In association with the University of Hong Kong
This seven-day Education Week addresses the general dental practitioner as well as the specialist and postgraduate student in his/her last year of training with an interest in comprehensive dental care. On the basis of daily case presentations and discussions in working groups, comprehensive treatment planning is carried out with the aim of implementing new knowledge and biological concepts.
The goal is to find the optimal treatment plan for each patient taking into consideration his/her needs in terms of esthetics and function under healthy conditions. Great emphasis is placed on patient maintenance and mastering biological and technical complications.
Besides approximately 20 lectures that cover the most up-to-date aspects of the literature, an evidence-based treatment philosophy is offered. Hands-on exercises in the newly established SIM laboratory of the Faculty of Dentistry round off the course in order to provide the necessary skills for advanced procedures in implant dentistry and related fields (regeneration). Bone augmentation and sinus floor elevation using modern materials will also be practiced in the SIM Lab.
To promote friendship and collegial discussions, most of the late afternoons and evenings will be spent together in the proximity of Prince Philip Dental Hospital exploring the beauty and culinary specialties of Hong Kong. Dinner on Victoria Peak, an evening on Lamma Island and a trip to the famous Stanley market accompanied by a meal will serve to create fine memories of this lively and vibrant city. Spouses and partners are welcome to these social events, which will leave them free to experience the unlimited shopping facilities of Hong Kong during the day.
