What will he talk about

Refining our profession: Developments in Esthetic Dentistry 

The only constant is change. The same applies to our professional treatment concepts, although the development and quick uptake of new techniques are happening much more rapidly today than just a few years ago. To what extent is an updated tool box with digitalization in the diagnostics, plannning and execution af treatment, necessary to provide the best patient care? Will the digital era make our treatments better for our patients with more predictable successful results? 

The lecture will look into what have we learned during the last 20 years and how patient driven developments are defining directions of our daily work. A holistic perspective on treatment planning, with esthetics as important part of patient needs, will be presented.
