29 years after the initiation of this Periodontics research training project, the 16th Course on Research Methodology in Periodontics and Osseointegration was held in Oviedo, Spain. This time, the main focus of the encounter was to review the role of bacteria in periodontal disease.
Professors and students from the top dental colleges of Spain met at the University of Oviedo for a brush-up on oral microbiology.
This course is held every two years and has become a leading event in the field of research thanks to the collaboration between the Universidad de Oviedo and SEPA and to DENTAID’s unwavering support right from the start.
More than 500 dentists participated in the most recent Aula DENTAID course held in the cities of Cusco and Lima (Peru).
Entitled Technological Advances in Periodontal Healthcare, these training sessions focused on discussing the latest advances related to oral hygiene and maintenance of periodontal and peri-implant health, covering from the most scientific aspects to the clinical implications for practitioners and patients. The courses were given by doctors Alberto Massoli, Rubén León, Xavier Calvo and Andrés Pascual.
The dentists attending gave a very high rating to this activity for its high scientific level and for providing quality training in the field of Periodontal Healthcare.
The Spanish Society of Periodontology and Osseointegration (SEPA) and DENTAID recently renewed its deep-rooted Continuing Education Agreement. This partnership allows for training and updating dentists and dental hygienists year after year on periodontology-related topics, dental implants, oral hygiene as well as dental coaching and managing a dental practice.
The training sessions, which are usually in person, are held in different Spanish cities throughout the year. This training plan aims to improve the care and service dental professionals offer their patients, by improving their knowledge and enhancing their skills in dentistry.
The recent signing of this agreement reaffirms the common interest of both entities to continue backing quality training for all dentistry professionals.
DENTAID continues to support professional training in Dentistry and is once again collaborating with the Universidad de Santiago de Compostela (USC) in the upcoming Periodontology Refresher Course. The programme is set to commence in November and will run through the school year to June 2017 with a total of 7 training modules. (See list).
