The 8,500 participants in the online congress with 16 international speakers from 13 countries dealt with topics such as "The preservation of periodontally compromised teeth in dental care following Covid19" or addressed the question: "How do I react to the corona pandemic in the dental practice? In addition, numerous speakers addressed the handling of various extraordinary situations in everyday dental practice. Geistlich COO Matthias Dunkel takes stock: "Initial feedback shows that the congress participants greatly appreciated the relevance of the topics, the competence of the speakers and the easily accessible educational offerings in these challenging times".

Established and young voices in dentistry

The regeneration specialist Geistlich Pharma was in the fortunate position of being able to obtain the unbureaucratic promises of twelve sought-after dentists within a short time. In order to win not only these established names but also ambitious young talents for an appearance, Geistlich organised the competition for "Become a Speaker". The registered congress participants were invited to judge the 80 video contributions received on the basis of their form and content. Four speakers from Brazil, Lebanon, Turkey and India emerged as winners of the voting. Their presentations rounded off the "Geistlich + YOU" program. After this first appearance on the international congress stage, Geistlich Pharma wishes the four winners all the best and every success for their future engagements. Matthias Dunkel: "We are honoured to have offered four talents a springboard. We are even more pleased to continue to accompany them.
