Oral Reconstruction Global Symposium New York is cancelled

Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, the health and safety of our Global Symposium attendees has always been our top priority. After careful consideration, we have made the decision to cancel the Global Symposium which was planned to take place in New York City.

Considering the uncertainties COVID-19 might still provide in one year from now, it did not seem feasible to continue with our plans to keep New York City as venue and to simply move the symposium by one year.

The Oral Reconstruction Foundation was looking forward to its Global Symposium and to meet with professionals from around the world. Efforts are ongoing to establish an attractive alternative event for the year 2022. In the meantime, the Foundation will inspire excellence in oral reconstruction and share new knowledge and insights through national events as well as online education.

Please find below answers to some questions regarding the cancellation of our Global Symposium.

Yes. Considering the uncertainties COVID-19 might still provide one year from now, it did not seem feasible to continue with the event in New York in 2021. Therefore, we are diligently working on identifying an attractive alternative location for 2022.

Ladies and gentlemen, friends and colleagues

The Oral Reconstruction Foundation is committed to science and education for the good of the patient. The Foundation invests in research, supports interdisciplinary knowledge exchange and promotes training and education in implant dentistry and related fields.

This is reflected perfectly in the 2020 Oral Reconstruction Global Symposium with the theme “20/20 Vision“. A world-renowned lineup of speakers from implant dentistry related disciplines will cover a wide range of contemporary issues in implant dentistry and tissue regeneration. A multitude of breakout sessions and hands-on exercises on topics such as digital workflow, immediate full arch treatment, L-PRF applications, hard and soft tissue grafting, immediate placement and temporization, prevention and management of peri-implant diseases, and many more are planned. The Symposium will also include lectures on extraction site management, tissue regeneration, digital workflow, long-term sustainability, and experts‘ discussions of challenging cases.

The Global Symposium offers the perfect opportunity to stay abreast of the latest treatment options while enjoying time with colleagues in the heart of Times Square, where our symposium venue – the Marriott Marquis hotel – is conveniently located.

New York City, the largest city in the U.S., is an architectural marvel with plenty of historic monuments, magnificent buildings and countless dazzling skyscrapers. Besides the architectural delights, New York is an urban jungle that has everything to offer to visitors. The city is home to numerous museums, parks, trendy neighborhoods and shopping streets.

Register to participate in our symposium today.
We look forward to seeing you there!

There isn’t another like it.
No matter where you go.
And nobody can compare it.
It’s win and place and show.
New York is special.
New York is diff’rent‘ cause there’s no place else
on earth quite like New York and that’s why
