Message from the Conference Desk by Dr Anand Krishna G N

Dentistry is experiencing a profound paradigm shift in both training and clinical practice. The concept of rehabilitating edentulous spaces with dental implants, better esthetic solutions, improving occlusion and TMJ health is now taking precedence to improve quality of life in patients. Oral rehabilitation has also seen increased successful outcomes with application of Digital and technological advances.

Digital and technological advances have made processes in dentistry faster, safer, predictable, and improved outcomes and improved success rates. The influence is so profound that adaptation to this newer aspect of dentistry becomes important to maintain the quality and standard of care. South Asian Society for Maxillofacial Implantology has taken up Digital dentistry as the focus to ideate workflows and to implement patient centric treatment plans.

During this three day scientific extravaganza you will listen to a wide array of speakers from various parts of the world with vast experiences in their area of specialty.”
