BioHorizons Global Symposium Spotlights Solutions to Dental Implant Issues

Posted on October 9, 2013


BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – The 2013 BioHorizons Global Symposium brought together more than 1,400 dental professionals from 55 countries to the prestigious Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami, Florida. Thirty-eight clinicians presented throughout a 3-day program April 25-27 that featured concurrent surgical and restorative tracks, hands-on training, and faculty-moderated discussion panels.

The program was led by internationally recognized opinion leaders who addressed a range of topics, including immediate placement and loading, implant complications, treatment planning, and tissue regeneration. Pre-symposium courses included topic-specific breakout sessions and a dedicated Spanish language symposium by key thought leaders from throughout Latin America.

“This is the most impressive, educational implant forum I have ever attended,” said Dr. Daniel Spagnoli, Chair of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, LSU School of Dentistry.

“This was the most comprehensive agenda in our history,” said R. Steven Boggan, President and CEO of BioHorizons. “The Global Symposium incorporated research and practical perspectives from top clinicians around the world. They described the latest technologies and techniques for resolving challenging issues within implant dentistry. With technology evolving so rapidly, it’s important that clinicians base their decisions on evidence-based solutions, not industry rhetoric. The Global Symposium met that important need based on the overwhelmingly positive feedback from all of the attendees.”

“Given the tremendous response, we will continue to offer these much needed programs to dental clinicians,” said Greg Bryant, Director of Continuing Education. “The next three stops in our International Symposium Series have already been scheduled for Mumbai, India (2013), Dubai (2014), and Los Angeles (2015).”
