You won’t be alone in the Lone Star State as hundreds of dental professionals converge on the Dallas area for the ICOI World Congress. Taking place at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center from Sept. 28 to 30, more than 500 hygienists, dental assistants and front office personnel will join doctors and dentists to learn more about the educational platform of implantology.

This year’s theme, Dental Implant Success 2023: Defining it and Achieving It, will feature guest speakers from around the world. Topics will include single tooth implant restoration to full arch rehabilitation as well as include the latest regenerative techniques available today.

There will be plenty of opportunity to earn C.E. credit as well as learn from some of the industry’s implant leaders. A variety of workshops are taking place during the three-day event. Some of the highlights of this year’s ICOI World Congress include Drs. Joseph Gillespie & Ady Palti’s multi-part lecture and hands-on experience on salvaging and restoring narrow ridge implants and how to treat and salvage failing implants.

Another highlight will be Dr. Tarek Assi’s course called “Fully Guided Full Arch Immediate Implant Reconstruction”. Participants in this course will learn about digital workflow and how it improves precision while reducing the amount of time patients spend in the dentist chair.

Your dental team will have a program geared just for them during the three days spent in Dallas. A separate Auxillary Program will run concurrently with the main event. Highlights include morning and afternoon lectures and exhibits. Topics range from how to protect your practice to extraction socket grafting to navigating the changing landscape of insurance billing.

To kick off the event, a Welcome Reception will take place in the exhibit hall on Thursday night from 5:45 to 7:15. This takes place immediately after the afternoon sessions and will give participants a chance to relax and socialize with other attendees. Hor d’oeuvres and drinks will be served, and participants will have a chance to meet exhibitors and see and discuss presentations made by tabletop and poster participants.

They say everything is bigger in Texas and a big event is scheduled for Saturday night. The diplomate/mastership/fellowship awards ceremony will take place from 6:15 to 7 p.m. The Advanced Credentialing Awards ceremony will be held at the Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center and will celebrate the newest class of ICOI diplomates, masters, fellows and ADIA fellows. It provides an opportunity for family, staff and other ICOI members to celebrate the newest credentialed members.
