The 13th of October 2016 heralds the opening of the NZIDT (New Zealand Institute of Dental Technology) International Conference in Wellington.
This fantastic event is being held at Te Papa Museum.
The conference “Matrix in the City” features technology, the changes, the direction and the future.
The conference spans three days. Day one showcases two full-day seminars running side by side and delivered by two world renowned speakers. The calibre of these speakers is rarely seen in New Zealand and it has taken three years of planning and communication to secure them for our conference.
One of these speakers, Luc Rutten, is travelling from Belgium. Luc and his brother Patrick are technicians specialising in crown & bridge and implants with an emphasis on aesthetics. Luc has lectured regularly all over the world in Europe, India, Australia, Israel, Japan, South Africa and USA. His knowledge and skills are world class and if you are involved in aesthetics, crown & bridge and implant restorations his seminar is one not to be missed.
Our second speaker is prosthodontist Dr Julian Conejo from Costa Rica. Julian is highly regarded in the prosthetics field, specialising in dental implants and CAD-CAM technology. Julian has won many awards and is featured in several publications including Quintessence and Dental Dialogue. Julian will be flying to Australia after his lecture in New Zealand to speak at the Quintessence Symposium. If removable prosthetics is your thing, Julian’s seminar on the Thursday is definitely one to book into.
Friday and Saturday sees the continuation of the conference but with a slightly different format. The two keynote presenters will speak alternately and guest speakers New Zealand prosthodontist Andrew Cautley, Australian technician Russell Young, and Barry Williams in his capacity as professional advisor for the Dental Council will be introduced into the mix.
Conference attendees will also qualify for the added benefit of one-stop shopping in our large trades' area. With 29 booths this area is sure to provide a great hub for viewing and learning about new technology and materials, social interaction and various competitions that will be run throughout the event. There will also be demonstration booths where companies will exhibit products and practical training, such as face bow recording to name but one.
The Friday evening dinner event features a sit down meal with the world famous “Beat Girls” for entertainment.
Come and join us for this exciting event. Registrations for the seminars and two-day conference are still available.
