The symposium was opened by Domenico Scala, CEO of Nobel Biocare, and by Jonathan Ferencz, chairman of the scientific committee, who announced the five key educational key themes for the following three days: immediate function; soft tissue health and long-term predictability; new technologies for prosthetic success; treatment for edentulous patients; and advanced treatment planning. The format of the meeting consisted of main programs in the Grand Ballroom, along with parallel sessions, master classes and hands-on training. Between sessions, attendees were able to walk through the exhibit area and view products and demonstrations and to meet with representatives from Nobel Biocare who specialize in particular products. As a final introduction before the numerous panelists took the stage, Scala introduced a video featuring an interview with Dr. Per-Ingvar Brånemark, the originator of dental implantology who talked about how amazed he is at how far the science behind dental implants has come in the last fifty years, and how much there remains to be learned. Dr. Brånemark said cooperation between clinicians remains key to implant success, and he would like to see a closer relationship between dentists and medical doctors.“My feeling it that dentistry and medicine is healthcare, and there is no separation between them,” he said. As the day moved on to the presentations from the Global Symposium faculty it was announced that questions should be submitted via text message, and devices were handed out that allowed speakers to poll the audience about certain questions throughout the day. With these devices it was learned that 44 percent of attendees were oral surgeons or periodontists, 23 percent were general practitioners, 17 percent were prosthodontists, 10 percent lab technicians, with the remaining 6 percent falling into other categories.

Attendees at the meeting also had the opportunity to visit the training and manufacturing plant in Mahwah, NJ, USA, where assembly lines are capable of producing crowns 24 hours a day. (The company also operates two other such facilities, in Stockholm and Tokyo.) Attendees at the site visit were able to learn from the assembled global brain trust behind NobelProcera, witness the assembly process—and even use the software to design an actual crown and send it into production. Participants used optical scanners featuring conoscopic holography technology to input an image of a tooth impression. Then, using software installed on laptop computers, participants learned how to create a file for a crown. The software was so easy to learn that attendees were able to get up and running in minutes. Files were then sent to the production facility in the adjoining room. It was a rare opportunity for meeting attendees to observe first hand the manufacturing process itself. The next Nobel Biocare Global Symposium will be held this August in Tokyo
