Straumann in the Spotlight at the 29th Annual Academy of Osseointegration Meeting

29th Annual Meeting
Seattle, Washington
March 6 - 8, 2014
Booth #1015

“Through the eyes of the Patient” was the theme for Straumann at this year’s AO meeting in Seattle, Washington, where the next innovative solution to help improve patient treatment experience; the Standard Plus Short Implant* (SPS) was introduced – a NEW 4 mm short implant* featuring the combination of our award winning Roxolid® material and SLActive® surface with the Loxim™ transfer piece for simplified handling. Straumann’s SPS Implant is a significant addition to our portfolio to offer less invasive options for tooth replacement.

Doctors had the hands-on opportunity to experience the new 4 mm implant* at the booth followed by a high energy New Product Showcase where they learned more about this star implant in an informal setting while posing for pictures with celebrity look-alikes Joan Rivers, Angelina Jolie and Robert De Niro.

Our exclusive Movie Premier event was a great venue for the theme “Through the eyes of the Patient”. Visitors had the opportunity to experience the thoughts, emotions and decisions of patients as they set out on a journey to get their smile back. Through a variety of real life stories, attendees followed along from the patient’s treatment decision, the clinician’s technique and the final outcome, and ultimately seeing how the Straumann solutions helped the treating clinicians grow their practices.

Our Corporate Forum drew standing room only crowds eager to learn about how Straumann’s latest science and clinical techniques can enhance practice growth, from presentations delivered by world renowned industry leaders, such as Dr. Paul Fugazzotto, Dr. Kanyon Keeney, Dr. Jennifer Doobrow, Dr. David Feinerman, Susan Wingrove, RDH, and Imtiaz Manji. From regeneration and implants to interdisciplinary care for practice growth, speakers addressed all topics relevant to the practice of dentistry today.
