NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. — Glidewell Dental, a leader in dental education and a technological innovator in restorative dentistry for nearly 50 years, wrapped up another successful Glidewell Dental Symposium, which took place in Orlando, Florida, on Nov. 8-9, 2019. More than 1,000 dental professionals attended the event, which brought together 21 world-class speakers and included the latest techniques, tools and technologies aimed at making general dentists more successful in their daily practices. The event featured a lineup of 14 fast-paced main podium presentations on the first day and 38 lectures and hands-on workshops on the second day. Sessions covered digital dentistry, esthetics, snoring and sleep apnea, implant dentistry, prosthetics and more.
Jim Glidewell, CDT, president and CEO of Glidewell Dental, opened the symposium with a very well-received presentation showing the latest dental technology. Courses were taught by world-renowned educators, practicing clinicians and thought leaders, and the keynote address, “The Emergency Implant,” was delivered by Jack Hahn, DDS, who has been placing and restoring implants for nearly five decades. During both days of the event, attendees learned the emerging science, technology and clinical methodologies that have defined the field of dentistry.
As a complement to the impactful CE program, attendees enjoyed a special area of the symposium, where cutting-edge technologies from Glidewell’s California campus were on display and in action. Attendees participated in interactive exhibits involving artificial intelligence challenges, futuristic robotics, an augmented reality tour of Glidewell’s revolutionary intelligent manufacturing center, and other live demonstrations.
The symposium also highlighted advanced clinical and business solutions. For example, Glidewell announced the introduction of ZERAMEX® XT Implants, which are made from zirconium dioxide material and support outstanding osseointegration. The new 12-piece Newport Biologics™ Implant and Bone Grafting Instrument Kit was introduced to streamline surgical cases. And dentists explored sophisticated digital dentistry with the glidewell.io™ In-Office Solution, which gives clinicians the capability to scan, design and mill same-visit restorations right in their own dental practice.
The fourth annual Glidewell Dental Symposium will take place Nov. 6-7, 2020, at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California. To learn more and to be the first to receive special early bird pricing information, visit glidewellsymposium.com.
