DGI – „Never stand still!“

The 30th DGI Congress returns to the Hanseatic City of Hamburg after six years. The topic: success factors in implantology. As in 2010, the President of the Congress is PD Dr. Gerhard M. Iglhaut, Memmingen.

The look beyond the professional and national horizons is just as important to the congress president as to the DGI President Prof. Dr. med. Frank Schwarz, Dusseldorf. This reflects the program of the conference, which brings together international speakers and experts from other disciplines. The internationality and interdisciplinarity becomes clear in the Forum practice and science, where speakers from Hungary, Spain, France and Italy describe their point of view. (The lectures will be translated simultaneously.) Among the highlights are certainly the presentation of the DGI’s Peri-X study on implant incompatibility and the discussion of the current guidelines for implantology, in which many specialist societies have participated.

The next generation of the DGI does not only deny its own forum together with the Osteology Foundation, but also organizes the table demonstrations “Implantology for Beginners” and, above all, is responsible for the festive evening with the motto “Never stand still” Keramik also participates again in the conference and has integrated its 16th Symposium.

The proven structure with various forums makes the congress a platform for the whole team. This concept will be retained in Hamburg – however, there will be small changes. For example, the DGI regional associations are more involved in the program design. For the first time, you will receive your own forum in Hamburg, designed by the regional associations of Northern Germany and Lower Saxony. The topic: Practical Implantitis Therapy.

Overview and orientation. As always, the congress will be preceded by seven sponsors’ workshops on November 24, and the accompanying international exhibition “Implant expo” will provide an overview and orientation on the latest trends and products in and for implantology.
