The annual Nobel Biocare UK Symposium is a world-class dental conference that attracts delegates from far and wide to an exciting two-day programme of events.
Enjoyed by dentists, laboratory technicians, nurses and support staff alike, this year, the Symposium takes place from the 9-10 September at the prestigious Millennium Gloucester Hotel in the heart of London’s Kensington.
Attendees will enjoy a full and varied programme of presentations, workshops, masterclasses and hands-on training led by world-renowned speakers and educators within the elegant surroundings of a luxury hotel.
Day one of the symposium includes sessions examining implants and their functions from inception to the future.
These sessions are divided into three key topics – surgical, laboratory and team approach – and are hosted by leading experts in their field:
