Dear friends and colleagues,
Another successful IADDM meeting in Berlin is just history. An outstanding scientific program attracted colleagues from allover the world. There is no better place than the annual meeting of IADDM to bring together the generalist, specialist, graduate student, and dental technologist interested in Digital Dental Medicine. Everybody profited from this family-style encounter with great networking opportunities. The strength of the scientific program and by this the strength of IADDM meetings in general is based in the diversity of the themes. Beside an innovative industrial input, fields like prosthodontics, orthodontics, operative dentistry, implant surgery and technology were presented on the highest level.
I thank the program chairs, Wael Att and Esam Tashkandi for their extensive work. The short-term move of the meeting to Berlin asked for a lot of flexibility and energy. This move was only possible thanks to Quintessence company in general and thanks father and son Mister Haase in particular. Last but not least, we highly appreciate the unrestricted support and commitment of our sponsor companies, such as the Platin Sponsors DIO Implant and Planmeca, the Gold Sponsors Thommen Medical and Dental Direkt, the Silver Sponsor Ivoclar Vivadent, and the Bronze Sponsor GC Dental.
After the meeting is just before the meeting. The Scientific committee works diligently to prepare for 2018’s meeting presumably in Nanning, China and we anticipate having another excellent time together for scientific sessions and to delight in each other’s company. Please help to support our aims such as 1) to attract and increase the number of Active and Associate Members to a respectful size, 2) to involve national as well as sponsoring organizations to be part of IADDM and 3) to position IADDM as a brand and as a not-to-be-missed-international-digital-event in the dental community.
Wishing you and your family a memorable Holiday season and a happy, safe and prosperous New Year
Prof. em. Dr. Carlo Marinello
