Dear Clinical Partners,
It is with great pleasure that Nobel Biocare renews our support of this monograph for a fourth consecutive year to highlight the proceedings from the 2014 American Academy of Periodontology Spring Conference, “The Perio-Restorative Partnership: A Roadmap to Clinical Success.”
Nobel Biocare would like to congratulate the American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) on its 100th anniversary. Founded in 1914 by Dr. Gillette Hayden and Dr. Grace Roger Spalding, this organization has grown to 8,000 members and along the way has made a powerful impact on oral healthcare and disease prevention in this country. As this organization celebrates an historic birthday it can take great pride in its role in the education and prevention of tooth loss in the United States as well as its efforts in promoting patient access to evidence-based dental solutions. We applaud these initiatives and stand beside you in support of your endeavors to make patients’ lives better through innovative and preventative dentistry.
This supplement to the Compendium of Continuing Education in Dentistry offers an opportunity for Nobel Biocare to promote the considerable efforts of the members of the AAP and to recognize the strides this specialty has made and will continue to make in the discipline of osseointegration. The collaboration between specialists and restorative dentists is a model that Nobel Biocare universally supports. The value of this scientific conference and the insights and advancements explored during the meeting will reach a broader audience within the dental profession thanks to the efforts of your board of directors and the publisher of this monograph, AEGIS Communications.
At Nobel Biocare we are honored to be able to support these achievements through our partnership with the AAP and AEGIS Communications in our combined efforts to promote dental education, scientific research, and innovative product development. We look forward to a long, productive partnership and will continue to support the AAP and its members to further enhance clinical outcomes and improve the lives of patients.
With warm regards,
Thomas M. Olsen
President and General Manager
