Welcome to Osteology Monaco 2016

Monaco is once more the place-to-be for all oral and maxillofacial surgeons, periodontists and oral health professionals interested in implant dentistry and regenerative therapies. With its exceptional climate and well-preserved lifestyle Monaco is the meeting point of Mediterranean and international cultures – and in April 2016 also for every scientist and practitioner who wants to find out more about the "WHY" and the "HOW" in regenerative therapy.

The Scientific Program of the 2016 Osteology Symposium with its motto - Learning the "WHY" and the "HOW" in regenerative therapy - addresses the many open questions that we still face in everyday work in our practice:

At first the “WHY”. WHY are certain procedures necessary? WHY do we have to treat in a specific way? WHY do complications occur? WHY are outcomes sometimes so difficult to predict? WHY are aesthetics so important? And WHY we still don’t know the answers to so many of these questions? 

And then also the “HOW”. HOW do we treat a certain indication? HOW does tissue heal optimally? HOW do we achieve the best possible result? HOW do techniques influence results? HOW to deal with complications? And HOW to answer all these open questions? 

In presentations, interactive sessions and discussions, we will try to answer as many questions as possible with the aim to give practitioners the relevant knowledge for their daily practice, and the confidence to provide their patients with the best possible treatment. Linking Science and Practice, international renowned experts will discuss the topics based on evidence from research, study data, and master clinician’s experience. 

For three days we will delve intensively into the current status of knowledge and research in oral tissue regeneration. Aside from the lectures, we wish to encourage all participants with interactive sessions to contribute experiences and stimulate discussion. And of course numerous practical workshops will offer the unique opportunity of trying out the latest techniques and materials. 

We are looking forward to seeing you in Monaco in April 2016, and hope that you will take home plenty of new insights and not too many open questions!
