Region's dentists to learn new techniques from international experts at Dentistry 2009
According to a recent survey by the American Association of Endodontists (AAE), fear of dentists plagues more than 80% of us.
Root canal procedure is the most feared treatment with 54% of adults as afraid of getting a root canal as they are of flying during a storm.
Any procedure that can make root canal treatment quicker or less painful has to be good news for everyone. At Dentistry 2009, a multi-track conference and exhibition, the region's dentists will be learning how to perform a successful root canal treatment in less than 45 minutes, saving patients time, stress and discomfort.
The new treatment will be presented by Dr Ahmet Utkut Ozan, Executive Director of Maxim Dental Institution in the USA and key speaker at the conference. Dr Ozan has been selected as one of the 'Top Hundred Clinicians' in the USA for the past three years and his popular 'proven methods' in Endodontics have been presented within the USA and internationally.
At Dentistry 2009 he will be running the workshop 'A Recipe for Successful Molar Endo in under 45 minutes', a technique many dentists will be keen to learn in order to offer their patients the most up-to-date care techniques.
“The best part of my lecture series is the workshops. My focus is to teach attending dentists completely new techniques, utilising proven older technology covering topics such as activated irrigation, intra canal aspiration and troubleshooting in endodontics," says Dr Ozan.
Dr Ozan is honoured to be elected as a top hundred clinician in the USA, especially since he originally trained in his home country of Turkey.
"I believe that the Western dental world has a lot to learn from Eastern dental professionals," he explains. "As a Middle Eastern dentist I love visiting the region, particularly the UAE, and enjoy the scientific sessions which are well organised and up-to-date."
In addition to Dr Ozan's lecture series, the list of speakers at Dentistry 2009 includes over 30 of the leading experts in the field of dentistry. Attendance at a lecture or workshop will carry CME (Continuing Medical Education) credits highlighting the educational significance of the event.
"With five IDR award winning presenters amongst others, top notch leaders in each discipline of dentistry and world renowned speakers all under one roof, Dentistry 2009 is a gathering you wouldn't want to miss," emphasised Raza Chevel, Conference Producer - Exhibitions, IIR Middle East, UAE.
Crafted by IIR Middle East Life Sciences, the organisers of the annual Arab Health Exhibition & Congress, Dr Ozan's lecture series will be running at Dentistry 2009 from 10 to 12 November at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, UAE. Dentistry 2009 is supported by the Health Authority Abu Dhabi, the UAE Ministry of Health and the Dubai Health Authority.
