Meeting colleagues from all walks of the dental profession
With its almost 140,000 visitors, IDS is attended by colleagues of diverse specialties and different professions within oral healthcare. From endodontists to oral and maxillofacial surgeons, to dental technicians and practice managers, representatives of all walks of the dental profession dropped by the FOR booth, attracted by the breadth of resources available for the entire dental team via FOR.org. This created the opportunity for fruitful new collaborations, including the publication of new technician-oriented content.

Spreading the word of sound clinical practice
IDS represents an invaluable opportunity to present FOR’s educational and scientific resources to the broader dental community. Clinicians, representatives of dental associations and professors from countries as diverse as Tunisia and Colombia had the opportunity to experience FOR’s educational resources first hand. Discussions regarding how to bring FOR to the communities which they lead or educate back home took place at the FOR booth.
FOR greatly relies on advocates and influencers to spread the word of sound clinical practice, rendering these networking opportunities invaluable. After only two weeks of the closing of IDS, these new connections have helped to once again broaden the scope of FOR’s reach.

Announcing exciting new content
Cologne also represented an opportunity to discuss upcoming new assets with tradeshow visitors. Among others, a new e-paper on connective tissue grafting, authored by Dr. Teixeira Barbosa, pictured above (right), will enrich FOR’s digital e-paper library in the upcoming weeks.
