The International Academy of Ceramic Implantology presents
10TH IAOCI WORLD CONGRESS
Ceramic Implants: A New Reality in Ceramic Implantology
Dear Friends, Colleagues and Members:
I would like first, to thank you for your continued support of the IAOCI even during this very unique and difficult year we’ve just completed. We are looking forward to 2021 and we all hope that it will be a better year. The IAOCI, from its inception 10 years ago, has been the worldwide leader in ceramic Implantology and we are proud to say that we continue to forge forward as we march toward our tenth anniversary congress. The academy started with three members including it’s founder and over the years pretty much single handedly brought metal free implantology to the forefront and contributed greatly to make it a relevant and fast growing alternative in implant dentistry.
In 2020 despite the challenges in lieu of our quarterly events, we organized and hosted the first ever virtual ceramic implant event which was very successful and well attended by members and followers across four continents and over 20 countries.
Our 10th Anniversary Congress will take place in Las Vegas, NV August 19-21, 2021. This is a slight alteration from our original date due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We feel this will offer a better chance for a fully attended event. As you know our membership and attendees come from all continents and for the past nine years we have showcased the world’s foremost experts in ceramic implantology. Today the IAOCI World Congress is looked upon as the hallmark event in the world for any dentist seeking to learn about or get more information and training on ceramic implants.
The theme for this milestone event is “Ceramic Implantology: Past, Present and Future” and as we have in the past we will have programs that will promote and showcase innovative and forward-thinking ideas through work- shops, lectures and symposia that enhance the understanding of and the rationale for ceramic implants.
As many of you are aware the majority of the patient demographic who are seeking ceramic implants tend to be very health and wellcare oriented. Therefore they expect their dentist to be familiar with forward thinking and minimally invasive treatment modalities, but also understand and implement biological and holistic concepts in their practice of medicine and dentistry. In response to that, we will have for the first time a half day workshop focused on helping non-biological/holistic dentists understand better how to treat this rapidly growing demographic and be competent and confident at presentation and planning ceramic implants. “Holistic Dentistry for the Non-holistic Dentist.
I, and all the academy officers, look forward to being able to reconvene and reconnect in person in Las Vegas, August 19-21, 2021 at the Paris Hotel.
