Straumann Live at the AEEDC in Dubai

"The ITI Middle East section is evolving very nicely"

Prof. Hani A. Salam, United Arab Emirates

Key topics of modern dentistry

Modern dentistry is evolving constantly and at a fast pace. Straumann strongly focuses on important trends in dentistry in order to offer your patients innovative treatment options that make them smile – and you stand out from the competition: esthetic restorations, less invasive treatment plans, solutions for edentulous patients, digital performance, compromised patients, prosthetic efficiency, and enablement and education.

At this year´s edition of the AEEDC in Dubai we focus on scientific evidence in patient-centric treatments with special consideration on edentulism, long-term success, predictable treatment outcomes and pleasing esthetics (Straumann AEEDC brochure). On this occasion, we have interviewed renowned dentists from different countries in the area.  Watch the interview with Dr. Hani A. Salam from the United Arab Emirates where he speaks on how to keep track of the latest developments in implant dentistry, the positive development of the ITI Middle East section and the possibilites of convincing patients for implant therapy and offer less invasive and less painful treatments.
