Dear Ladies and Gentlemen, dear friends of ceramic implants,
Dear colleagues, dear ESCI members and partners,
Especially in the world of ceramic implantology, only the facts should count!
Consequently, the 2nd European Congress for Ceramic Implant Dentistry will be held under the motto "Facts about Ceramic Implants". Individual experience provides confirmation: The advantages of ceramic implants are becoming obvious in clinical use and patients` interest constantly increases. In order to combine science with clinical experience, the ESCI, as the first scientific and evidence-based professional society for ceramic implant dentistry, is hosting the European Congress for Ceramic Implant Dentistry for the second time at the magnificent Bocken Estate in Horgen near Zurich, Switzerland.
In this stylish setting, we are looking forward to high-level lectures, a lively exchange of experiences and an intensive come together. The program is unique in ceramic implantology - the scientific lectures by internationally recognized experts as well as exciting workshops will provide clinically relevant and long-lasting inspiration for all participants.
Let us surprise you! ... visit the 2nd European Congress for Ceramic Implant Dentistry!
We are looking forward to seeing you!
