Eimear O’Connell introduces the ADI Team Congress 2021


  Posted by: Dental Design      16th January 2021

The ADI Team Congress 2021 has been designed specifically to cater for the demands, opportunities and challenges of the modern dental implant community. Entitled “The Great Debate – Current Dilemmas in Implant Dentistry”, the three-day event will present a packed educational programme with lectures tailored to different members of the dental implant team – from oral surgeons who place implants and dentists who focus on restoration, to dental hygienists and therapists, dental nurses, practice managers, treatment coordinators and dental technicians. A spectrum of world-class speakers will present their insights and share their experiences, while interaction from delegates will be encouraged throughout.

Eimear O’Connell, President of the ADI, shares some of the features she believes will set this Congress apart from previous events:

“A highlight of the forthcoming Congress will be the wide range of subjects relating to dental implantology that will be debated by some of the leading clinicians in the world. They will share with us the best indications for achieving predictable outcomes using their particular techniques and there will be topics to delight the whole dental team.

“I am particularly excited about Saturday afternoon’s session, when, for the first time, two UK-based clinicians will present a controversial case and three leaders in implant dentistry will debate their treatment plan. Questions will also be taken from the audience. This promises to be an exciting new format and we hope it will give clinicians the opportunity to see how assessment, diagnosis, treatment planning, treatment delivery and follow up are all essential parts of delivering favourable long-term outcomes for our patients.

“Also for the first time ever, we have industry sponsored, hands-on workshops. These sessions will cover a wide range of topics, running in the morning and repeated in the afternoon of Thursday 6 May. There will be a limited number of spaces available so early booking is highly recommended. The major exhibition will also enable delegates to engage with our wonderful industry sponsors and perhaps even invest in some new gadgets for your practices.”

As Eimear mentions, the extensive educational programme will be supplemented with a major trade exhibition featuring a selection of the latest products, materials and technologies in the dental implant market. Whether you are looking for more information, bespoke advice from the experts or to purchase a new system, there will be something for you.

This, like several features of the ADI Team Congress 2021, will also be an ideal place to finally catch up with friends from across the profession. Eimear continues:

“Never has unity within our profession been more desirous than in this post-COVID world. Dental technicians, practice owners and all the clinical team will find a programme of lectures to enlighten and entertain. Of course, this event may be the first chance to network with other colleagues and teams in-person for quite some time, which is a huge bonus. Alongside lectures and workshops, the event will be hosting a drinks reception, a speakers’ dinner and the Congress Dinner. These events promise a great opportunity to socialise, network and have some fun. The Congress Dinner will be held in the wonderful surroundings of the newly refurbished Kimpton Clocktower Hotel and will be a 1920-themed speakeasy with all the dinner, drinks and dancing from the decade.”

Given the challenges of the past year, the ADI has sought to make the 2021 Team Congress as accessible to everyone as possible. Consequently, it is launching an early bird discount to make attending the event even more affordable for delegates.

“In light of COVID,” comments Eimear, “the ADI Committee have been working remotely to save the organisation money and to be able to offer the Congress at the best price for our membership. This price will be the lowest it has ever been and this is a thank you to all of our members for their continuous support throughout this COVID crisis. Not only does this apply to the entry fee for clinicians, but in order to encourage full attendance of the team, ticket prices for team members start at just £50.

“In addition, to facilitate maximum participation, the main day of the Team Congress has been moved to Saturday with the Congress Dinner taking place on Saturday evening. This is in a deliberate effort to avoid using a normal working day and to encourage dental hygienists and dental technicians to attend, as well as all support staff.”

Full details of the ticketing options and programme are available on the event website. Regardless of your career ambitions or your experience in dental implantology to date, the ADI Team Congress 2021is an event you won’t want to miss. Eimear concludes:

“This event promises to be a sensational mixture of up-to-date topics presented by world-renowned clinicians. There will be plenty of learning, networking and fun for all – we hope to see you there!”
