Dear colleagues and partners,
although the current adversity due to the CoViD-19 pandemic led us last March to the postponement of the 16th Annual Meeting “The Esthetic Skyline”, the tradition of the successful annual meetings of the Hellenic Academy of Esthetic Dentistry will continue online on the 11-12 of December, 2020.
The HAED annual meetings have always been an excellent opportunity for interconnection between all members of the dental community in Greece and Cyprus with a special interest in Esthetic Dentistry. This year, due to the special circumstances, we will hold our online meeting through a technologically advanced internet environment, which will help us to minimize distances and operating costs in order to attract a larger number of speakers and delegates.
Through an especially designed electronic platform, we aspire to visualize a powerful educational experience with a total of 24 hours of continuous live streaming lectures with the most attractive two-day scientific program of Esthetic Dentistry, ever organized in Greece via the internet. Together we will approach modern clinical and laboratory aspects during the restoration of the esthetic zone and we will navigate the most reliable paths of current technology and digital dentistry for the optimal esthetic conservative or prosthetic (conventional and implant) restoration of the dental patient with composite or ceramic materials.
Guarantee for all above are the 15 excellent speakers, academics and front-line clinicians who kindly participate in our meeting such as M. Blatz (Philadelphia, PA), W. Att (Boston, MA), S. Pelekanos (Athens), M. Beschnidt (Baden Baden), A. Mainjot (Liège), C. Stappert (Zurich), K. Tolidis (Thessaloniki), F. Khoury (Haifa), B. Margeas (Des Moines, IA), S. Papazoglou (Athens), A. Papathanasiou (Boston, MA), N. Raptis (Athens), M. Zarow (Kraków), I. Buckle (Liverpool) and J. Tapia-Guadix (Madrid). Within this meeting, we also introduce the “Young Members Session” giving an important scientific podium to young colleagues, such as D. Moldovani and D. Spangopoulos (both Athens) for this year.
I really do not know if there is a metaphorical line on the horizon that defines esthetic perfection in Dentistry, but this December, with your active participation in the 16th Annual Meeting of the Hellenic Academy of Esthetic Dentistry I hope that we will touch it in the most beautiful and interactive way.
On behalf of the Board of Directors, I welcome you to attend “The Esthetic Skyline”.
Dr. Spiros Koutayas
President of the Hellenic Academy of Aesthetic Dentistry
