Key Factors for Long-Term Success
Written by John Brett, Practice Manager.
In May 2017, doctors Arun Thangavel and John Saad travelled to Basel, Switzerland to attend the World Symposium 2017.
More than 80 speakers from all over the world converged together to share their expertise on the key factors of long-term success, evidence-based approaches, and the next generation of implant dentistry.
“The event and speakers gave invaluable insights into what is considered state-of-the-art and what is important tomorrow,” said Dr Saad, Principal Dentist at Ambience Dental. “The symposium highlighted that the implants we use are considered by many experts to be the best for long term success.”
The combination of concern for the welfare of patients and scientific rigor is what sets apart good implant dentistry for long-term results. “New technologies are offering better solutions to problems many people have,” explained Dr Saad, “and at Ambience Dental we are guided by the best information and products to offer the best treatment for our patients.”
