Van Assche, Nele; Fickl, Stefan; Francisco, Helena; Gurzawska, Katarzyna; Milinkovic, Iva; Navarro, Jose M; Torsello, Ferruccio; Thoma, Daniel S (2018). Guidelines for development of Implant Dentistry in the next 10 years regarding innovation, education, certification, and associations. Clinical Oral Implants Research, 29(6):568-575.

Abstract

BACKGROUND During the third Summer Camp of European Association of Osseointegration (EAO), 40 junior representatives from various European societies and associations were brought together to discuss and explore the following topics in Implant Dentistry in the next 10 years: (I) certification, (II) societies and associations, (III) continuing education, and (IV) innovations. AIMS The aims of all working groups were to identify and outline the present situation in the area of the selected topic and to propose improvements and innovations to be implemented in the following 10 years. MATERIALS AND METHODS Four different groups were assigned randomly to one of the four working units. The method to discuss the selected topics was World Cafè. The summaries of four topics were then given to all participants for peer review. RESULTS AND CONCLUSIONS All four groups presented the conclusions and guidelines accordingly: (I) The recognition for Implant Dentistry and accreditation of training programs would lead to an improvement of the quality of care to the benefit of the patients; (II) Dental associations and societies have to continuously improve communication to meet needs of dental students, professionals, and patients (III) European Dental Board should be installed and become responsible for continue dental education; (IV) dental engineering, peri-implant diseases, and digital workflow in dentistry currently have limited tools that do not guarantee predictable results.
