“Geistlich + YOU2” has an international flavor and is packed with prestigious names such as Dr. Brenda Mertens, Prof. Ki-Tae Koo, Prof. Tomas Linkevičius and Prof. Daniel Buser. To enable participation once again by a wide audience from around the world, Geistlich will host the online congress in two time slots – “Mid-East” (9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m., MET) and “Mid-West” (6:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m., MET). The congress will be held in English with simultaneous translation in up to six additional languages. Admission is free, but for the optional workshop we ask for a contribution towards costs.

A springboard into the international congress world 

This year’s “Springboard” competition – “Become a Speaker” – was a resounding success. Following on from it, Geistlich is opening the race up to the best new, undiscovered talents and is once again offering the coveted Springboard platform. Geistlich COO Dr. Matthias Dunkel says: “We are eager to see who will be making the jump with us in 2021 into the international dentistry congress world.” Your application video should take into account that the winning entry will be decided by both audience votes and an expert jury. Full participation details will be available on the congress website from December 2.
