Inspiration and confidence at the World Summit Tour

The World Summit Tour, the scientific congress on implant dentistry by Dentsply Sirona Implants, kicked off in Tokyo, Japan in February 2017 and has so far visited San Diego and Nice. After the final stop in Shanghai, on May 19-20, 2018,  about 5,000 delegates have joined the inspirational scientific journey.

Under the umbrella theme “Because inspiration and confidence matters” the World Summit Tour presents current global and local scientific news and the latest in clinical and digital development, all based on our comprehensive solutions portfolio for implant dentistry. A scientific poster competition and a commercial exhibition, known as the Inspiration Hub, are also part of the four tour stops.

With our imaging solutions, with Simplant Guided Surgery as well as the Atlantis and CEREC restorative solutions, we are well prepared to support the digital trend and our customers’ preferred digital workflows, outsourced and chairside. At the Nice and San Diego tour stops, we also presented truly integrated digital solutions—Dentsply Sirona Implants together with CAD/CAM, Imaging and Equipment.

The feedback from delegates and faculty has been overwhelmingly positive, or as one delegate put it “very inspirational!”
