San Diego, May 2017—In 2017, Dentsply Sirona Implants welcomed dental professionals from all over the world to the World Summit Tour, the scientific congress on implant dentistry.
The combination of renowned international and regional speakers and a highly multifaceted program arrived in San Diego, the second stop of the four-city tour, following Tokyo, welcoming over 1,000 delegates and 45 speakers and moderators.
“It was an honor to welcome everyone to San Diego for this meeting filled with inspiration, science and learning,” says John Voskuil, VP and General Manager, Dentsply Sirona Implants, North America. “As a company committed to better, safer, faster dental care, this meeting created a tremendous opportunity and environment to truly engage with the dental professionals that we serve.

Each tour stop is designed to inspire clinicians and researchers to share scientific knowledge and clinical experience and discover the latest developments in implant dentistry. By combining general sessions, hands-on workshops, and a choice of various parallel sessions, the program promises to deliver inspiration and education for all members of the treatment team.
