For the first time, the Congress is offering a number of two-hour workshops on the Sunday following the Congress. Currently three workshops are planned with limited attendance that will provide participants with a fascinating and valuable practical element.
For the Dental Wings workshop, participants will be asked to bring along their laptop to find out how to take full advantage of the CoDiagnostix intuitive software for guided implant planning and designing customized and highly precise surgical drill guides. This FDA-approved software provides predictable results at the same time as increasing efficiency and productivity.
In the botiss biomaterials workshop, Daniel Rothamel will be discussing the use of bone substitute biomaterials with the aim of reducing and even excluding donor site morbidity as well as minimizing the perioperative stress related to dental implant treatment. He will also be showing easy and advanced grafting procedures.
In today’s digital world, dental photography is an essential skill and Parinya Amornsettachai’s dental photography workshop aims to show participants how to apply dental photography in daily practice as well as in presentations and communication with patients and colleagues. Participants will be taken through the camera’s mechanisms and functions, shown how to control them to produce quality images and then focus on taking consistently successful intra and extra-oral images.
With a poster competition as part of the congress, the organizers are now inviting implant dentistry professionals to submit abstracts by January 31, 2019. The three highest placed winners of the poster competition will receive:

The success of the ITI’s first two South East Asia congresses in Bangkok (2013) and Bali (2016) have prepared the ground for similar success with the 3rd ITI Congress South East Asia in Kuala Lumpur. They testify to the enthusiasm and dedication of the multi-country ITI Section South East Asia and the work it carries out throughout the region, promoting the evidence-based philosophy of the ITI.
The ITI looks forward to welcoming you at the 3rd ITI Congress South East Asia.
