Dear Clinical Partners,
It is with great pleasure that Nobel Biocare renews our support of this monograph for a third year to highlight the proceedings from the American Academy of Periodontology Spring Conference 2013. The meeting showcased the importance of teamwork and the relationship between periodontists and restorative dentists in addressing implant complications and solutions.
The American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) is an organization that is making great strides in the battle against oral disease. The AAP plays a pivotal role in the efforts to eradicate edentulism by promoting patient access to evidence-based dental solutions. We applaud these initiatives and stand beside you in support of your efforts to make patients’ lives better through innovative and preventive dentistry.
This supplement to the Compendium of Continuing Education in Dentistry offers an opportunity for Nobel Biocare to promote the considerable efforts of the members of the AAP and to recognize the strides this specialty has made and will continue to make in the discipline of osseointegration. The collaboration between specialists and restorative dentists is a model that Nobel Biocare universally supports. The value of this scientific conference, and the insights and advancements explored during the meeting will reach a broader audience within the dental profession thanks to the efforts of your board of directors and the publisher of this monograph, AEGIS Communications.
At Nobel Biocare, we are honored to be able to support these achievements through our partnership with organizations such as the AAP and AEGIS Communications in our combined efforts to promote dental education, scientific research, and innovative product development.
Our goal is to be your partner of choice in science-based solutions, practice development, and any additional resources necessary to enhance the well-being of your patients. With that in mind, we will continue to partner with the AAP and its members to further assist the needs of patients and to live up to our promise of “Designing for Life.”
With warm regards,
Thomas M. Olsen
