Dentsply Sirona held their annual World Meeting in Las Vegas, Nevada from September 14-16, 2017. Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine (GSDM) faculty members Drs. Neal Fleisher, Hesham Nouh and Alexander Bendayan presented at the World Meeting. Primarily, their presentation focused on the curriculum changes implemented into both predoctoral and postdoctoral programs to incorporate guided surgery into the curriculum using digital workflows at GSDM.
Drs. Fleisher and Nouh presented the details of the predoctoral Implantology laboratory simulation to predoctoral students, and how it seamlessly integrated into the Patient Treatment Centers where students place dental implants with the supervision of faculty members. Dr. Alexander Bendayan presented the different workflows needed when planning more complex surgical guides used in the Postgraduate Patient Treatment Centers.
Dr. Louis Brown presented together with Dr. Robert Douglas on “Technology in Dental Education,” highlighting the benefits of Evaluation Software on Saturday, September 16th. He has successfully integrated Prep Check in the GSDM predoctoral curriculum during the simulations in fixed prosthodontics. On this subject, he has also presented multiple posters at various organization’s meetings.
During the same meeting, an alumni reception was hosted by Dr. Bendayan on Friday, September 15, 2017 from 6-9 p.m. at Mercato Della Pescheria located in the Palazzo-Venetian Hotel. The event attracted many GSDM alumni who were attending the meeting. Dr. Bendayan gave recognition to all the faculty at Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine that have worked hard to establish and advance Digital Dentistry in our School. He also updated the attendees of the plans and ongoing progress with the renovation and expansion project, set to commence in January 2018.
The next Dentsply Sirona World Meeting will be held in Orlando, Florida from September 13 – 15, 2018 at the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort.
