What does the dental future have in store for us? This question will be addressed at the 5th International Expert Symposium, which will be held in the “Les Salles du Carrousel du Louvre” convention centre in the heart of Paris this year. Sixteen distinguished international dental experts will share their knowledge and expertise during the two-day event. Theory and practice will come together to give the participants new and exciting insights and inspiration for their work in the dental office and laboratory. They will experience world-class presentations first hand without any language barriers, since the lectures will be simultaneously translated into six languages (English, French, German, Spanish, Italian and Russian). The delegates will also have the unique opportunity to exchange ideas and experiences and to network with colleagues from all over the globe. We are honoured that Assoc. Prof. Dr Jean-Pierre Attal, Director of the research unit URB2i at the Paris Descartes University has agreed to be the scientific chair of the symposium. Dr Attal is an internationally renowned and respected authority on dental biomaterials.

Acclaimed keynote speaker: Dr Bertrand Piccard
Dr Bertrand Piccard is the initiator and visionary behind Solar Impulse – the very first aircraft that can fly without fuel. It is in his DNA to transcend boundaries and make the seemingly impossible a reality. Dr Piccard was the first to make a non-stop balloon flight around the globe and a round-the-world flight in a solar-powered aircraft, thus writing aviation history. In his keynote lecture “Embracing the Unknown”, he will give tips and ideas on how to be a pioneer in life, dropping the ballast of our certitudes and finding other directions to invent a better future.
