The exceptional speakers, program and venue make the Nobel Biocare Global Symposium a must-attend event for dental professionals worldwide. Held at the Waldorf Astoria in New York, it’s a unique opportunity to experience how innovation can come to life in your daily work.

During four action-packed days and numerous podium lectures, forums, master classes and hands-on sessions, you will gain a thorough and practical understanding of your chosen topics and develop your skill-set to treat more patients better. Don’t miss this opportunity to interact with 150 industry experts as well as peers from around the world while exploring the future of dental implantology. Welcome to the Nobel Biocare Global Symposium in New York.

Shape the program your way

For the first time at our dental events you have been able to directly impact the program by voting on various topics, formats and speakers. The voting results are in and three new sessions have been added to the program.



The four-day program is divided into three main themes; refining treatment, digital dentistry and clinical excellence. Each has a complete lineup of its own, from lectures and master classes to hands-on sessions. If you choose to follow only one theme, each lineup has been scheduled so that you don’t have to miss any of the related sessions.

You can also pick and choose between the different themes and attend the sessions that interest you the most. Additionally, we’ve arranged an exciting array of forums including an innovation assembly and a full-day compromised patient forum.

Theme 1 – Treatment enhancement and refinement – evidence counts

This theme is recommended for professionals who want to improve in patient-centered treatment protocols. Explore the development as well as supporting clinical and scientific evidence of these protocols, and how professionals have laid the foundation for current and future decision making.

Theme 2 – Reaching excellence in esthetics by joining the journey of digital dentistry

Digital treatment planning and CAD/CAM solutions increasingly play major roles in today’s dental labs and practices.

Advances in technology make it simpler to predict treatment outcomes, while workflow improvements foster increased collaboration. But how does all this improve the daily routine? And which tools and digital techniques best support improved esthetic results? The journey of digital dentistry is designed for all members of the treating team.   

Theme 3 – Achieving clinical excellence in challenging situations

This theme focuses on two parts. The first part explores bone grafting and associated augmentation techniques as well as optimized soft tissue protocols for safe, esthetic implant placement. The second part focuses on treatment planning for patients who are missing one or more teeth, or who will soon need teeth to be extracted. What solution should be selected? This theme is designed for all members of the treating team.  

Forums – An exciting array of topics awaits you in New York

At the NEXT GEN forum you’ll hear from the new generation of dental professionals. The All-on-4® treatment concept forum will explore this increasingly popular edentulous treatment. The Innovation assembly is for everyone interested in Nobel Biocare’s upcoming innovations. The Dental technician forum explores improving workflows and the technical and clinical possibilities for the NobelProcera. The Partnering for Life forum will provide our experience and insight into improving patient flow and acceptance. The compromised patient forum looks at providing accurate treatment planning and execution to meet patient demands while ensuring lasting results.
