It's all in your hands

Has it ever crossed your mind that the interaction between your brain and your hands is what enables you to create the most fantastic result? You probably have, because without your deep knowledge of how to solve clinical challenges, and the dexterity of your hands, there would be no successful treatments and satisfied patients.

But have you given the same amount of thought on how to make the perfect environment for your mind & body to learn new skills? No? Well we have.

At our Nobel Biocare Nordic Symposium at Yasuragi Hasseludden you will get it all. Everything from theory to real hands-on training in an energizing environment. We have made sure that every detail is in place to optimize the learning outcomes for each given topic in the field of implantology. Experience excellent speakers, a focus on hands-on training and a beautiful and mind boosting environment, all combined with excellent Japanese food and, of course, a fabulous party. The stage is set for two days that will boost both body & mind as you learn new skills.
