HELSINKI, Finland: The Nordic Institute of Dental Education (NIDE) is a Planmeca subsidiary specialising in high-quality continuing education (CE). As an organiser of such courses in Finland for dental professionals from around the world, NIDE has built a network of experienced lecturers to guide its programmes, which cover 3-D imaging, CAD/CAM dentistry, aesthetic dentistry and more. Its next course on aesthetic dentistry will be held in September.
As part of the course, participants will learn correct planning, preparation and bonding, how to perform minimally invasive dentistry and how to create defect-oriented adhesive restorations. The course will be presented by Dr Irena Sailer and master dental technician Vincent Fehmer, both of whom reside in Switzerland and work at the University of Geneva’s Clinic for Fixed Prosthodontics and Biomaterials.
“The course will help participants to understand the intricacies of chairside dentistry—how to successfully integrate digital workflows and how to utilise modern diagnostic tools to visualise treatment goals,” said Sailer, who is also Chair of the Division of Fixed Prosthodontics and Biomaterials at the university.
“Understanding the indications for monolithic reconstructions is important, as they represent the keystone to a successfully integrated digital workflow,” said Fehmer, who runs his own dental laboratory in Lausanne.
To date, NIDE has hosted dental professionals from over 40 countries at its courses, with both Sailer and Fehmer lecturing there previously. According to Planmeca, the goal with NIDE was to meet the growing need for hands-on dentistry courses, something they believe they have achieved and already become an established CE provider.
“NIDE’s courses are a well-balanced mixture of lectures and hands-on training. They provide clinically relevant and scientifically based content that is applicable as part of everyday work,” said Sailer.
With all NIDE’s lectures structured on evidence-based research and scientific information, the courses are accredited by the University of Turku in Finland, and NIDE is recognised by the American Dental Association Continuing Education Recognition Program.
