i-CAT and Henry Schein Dental held the fall session of the 7th International Congress on 3D Dental Imaging in Boston last month, which informed and educated general dentists and specialists on the benefits of cone beam imaging for the modern-day dental practice.

During the event, experienced professionals delved into the many applications of 3D dentistry for implants, orthodontics, TMD and airway diagnosis, oral and maxillofacial surgery, and periodontics.

Lectures ranged from basic information sessions to detailed clinical use and hands-on training with 3D planning software programs. Attendees heard from industry experts and colleagues who shared their perspectives on real 3D imaging applications during main podium lectures and breakout sessions. To maximize the learning opportunities at the conference, small group sessions allowed attendees to meet, socialize, and exchange insights with the experts in cone beam 3D imaging.

Clinicians also benefited from networking opportunities with colleagues from around the world. Partners and vendors demonstrated 3D imaging tools and options, supporting 3D products for imaging, implant, restorative systems, orthodontics, and 3D treatment-planning software.

“It is clear that we are all very passionate about our involvement with CBCT imaging as evidenced by the exceptional presentations representing the state-of-the-art modalities combined with the positive interactions and feedback from participants who attended the Boston 3D Congress,” said Speaker Dr. Scott Ganz.

During the event, one attendee – Dr. Stephen Dunn of Ocala, Fla. - was the winner of the i-CAT® FLX Sweepstakes, winning $50,000 off of an i-CAT® FLX.

“My passion for dentistry has encouraged me to pursue knowledge so that I can look at each patient from many different perspectives and allow the patient many avenues of treatment in order to achieve excellent oral health and function,” said Dr. Dunn. 

According to i-CAT, the International Congress on 3D Dental Imaging can help expand the dental landscape for those at any stage in learning about 3D dentistry - from those researching the technology all the way to advanced users. The next International Congress will be held April 11 - 12, 2014 in Scottsdale, Ariz. For more information, call 267-954-0330 or visit www.i-cat.com/events/congress.
