Preface

1st EAED Academy Meeting (Open to Members and Affiliates)

Salzburg-Fuschl, Austria, May 21st – 23rd 2020

It is our great pleasure to announce the 1st  EAED Academy Meeting,  which will be held from May 21st to May 23rd 2020 at the picturesque Lake Fuschl, close to the city of Salzburg in Austria.

Digital Technologies have changed the face of dentistry in the last decades, giving rise to our heading Digital Dentistry – Current Options in Different Disciplines – Future Perspectives  – Benefit for the Patient.

True to this title, the scientific chairmen have compiled a highly informative and future-oriented program with more than 20 top-class speakers from all over the world. Following the spirit and tradition of our society, it is hereby intended to present to you the current status and future perspectives of digital techniques in different fields of dentistry and dental technology in three days. Independent and thematically oriented sessions will be accompanied by on-patient live-demonstrations and live-CAD/CAM procedures of milling and 3D printing. The future role and potential of artificial intelligence and big data will also be analyzed. As one of the highlights, a treatment planning session will enable specialists in digital dentistry to demonstrate the newest approaches in virtual planning, test-drives and transfer in definitive metal-free materials. All sessions will be discussed interactively.   

Besides the scientific program, there will be enough space to enjoy, relax and simply have a good time together. We have invested a lot of effort in putting together social activities that promise memorable moments at some of the most beautiful spots around Lake Fuschl. 

Don`t miss the opportunity to be inspired by the First Academy Meeting and use this chance to learn from the best. Come and join us in Salzburg-Fuschl, be part of the future of dentistry – we are really looking forward to seeing you there!
