The ADI Team Congress is shaping up for the 30th Anniversary congress.
Running from the 2nd – 4th of March this year, this ADI team congress is aiming to be the best one yet.
The Association of Dental Implantology is a registered charity. They are dedicated to providing the profession with continuing implant education and the public with a greater understanding of the benefits of dental implants. This team congress is celebrating 30 years of charity and has a lot in store.
This years title is ‘Dental Implantology: A Global Perspective – Inspiration From Around The World’. It will be hosted in ExCel London. This years time table includes an expanded programme of lectures from world-renowned experts and a major trade exhibition. The ADI Team Congress are also promising exciting social events and engaging forums.
What’s more, the highly anticipated Congress Dinner will be held at the National Maritime Museum, providing the perfect opportunity to network and socialise with peers. We’re sure it’s not to be missed!
The role of the TCO
Rachel Hughes will be among the outstanding speaker line-up at the ADI Team Congress 2017, presenting as part of the Team Programme.
She will be discussing the role of the treatment coordinator (TCO) for practices offering dental implants and comments:
“The TCO role is primarily there to build customer relations and handle communication. With an involved, complex procedure such as implants, it is very important. The TCO should guide the patient through every stage of the process, ensuring a very robust consenting process.
“I think the main challenge for practices offering dental implants is local competition. Having a TCO in place means that patient enquires and marketing campaigns can be handled in the appropriate manner.
“I hope that delegates will be excited to see how the TCO role can be used to its full potential within a dental practice and how the role can be expanded to benefit the practice as a business and the wider dental team.”
Nobel Biocare are raring to go!
Having driven innovation in dental implantology for more than 25 years, Nobel Biocare will be demonstrating its latest and greatest achievements at the ADI Team Congress 2017 exhibition. Their products on display will include the On1 restorative concept. This has been praised in recent months by the profession for its huge benefits to soft tissue healing and its movement of implant restoration from bone level to tissue level. The MultiUnit Abutment Plus will also be available. It is designed to simplify the denture conversion process for an easier and faster workflow.
Nobel Biocare also plan to run a Corporate Forum at the event. It will be entitled ‘Contemporary solutions for complex treatment challenges’. The morning’s programme will be delivered by world-class professionals Bertil Friberg, Alessandro Pozzi and Guy McLellan.
Another of the speakers at the ADI Team Congress will be Dr Hom-Lay Wang. He is a periodontist and director of the graduate periodontal program at University of Michigan School of Dentistry. With around 400 lectures under his belt, he’s certainly an expert in the field. He said:
“My lecture will explore current understanding of the main contributing factors for peri-implantitis and how to avoid them. In addition, I will discuss concepts designed to help manage the condition and overcome the challenge. I believe the ADI Team Congress is one conference that professionals involved in dental implantology cannot afford to miss – it will provide solid foundations for the long-term success of dental implants.”
“Help to reduce the potential for prosthetic implant complications”
William Martin is a Clinical Professor for the Departments of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and Prosthodontics at the University of Florida’s College of Dentistry. He too will be speaking at the ADI Team Congress. He comments:
“During my lecture, several key treatment planning factors will be presented that help to reduce the potential for prosthetic implant complications. By reducing the risk of mistakes, this saves the clinician time and money and encourages increased patient satisfaction at the same time.”
