Scientific Conference for Dentists from Kiev Region

On April 9, Scientific and Practical Conference for dentists from Kiev region was held at the initiative and with the active support of the “European Dental Center” - representative of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Orale Implantologie (DGOI), the German society for oral implantology in Ukraine. Special guest and speaker, who addressed the Conference, was Professor, President of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Orale Implantologie (DGOI), Dr Fred Bergmann.


The official part of the Conference was held in the auditorium of Irpen City Council. “Within our cooperation with DGOI, we asked Professor Bergmann to speak to our specialists in order to understand what we should go for and what technologies we should implement. Very often dentists working in the field do not have an opportunity to improve their skills abroad. That is why we decided to hold the Conference involving foreign experts in Irpen. The city was chosen for the reason that the health care and dentistry, in particular, are actively developing here”- said the Main Dentist of Kiev region, Vasiliy Rybak. According to him, Ukrainian dentists become familiar with the experience and knowledge of their colleagues from Western Europe during such meetings, and then apply knowledge acquired throughout the country. Thus, any doctors working in the capital region have got a great chance to join the world achievements of dentistry. In addition, the Conference gave a positive example of joint work for public institutions and private sector via the “European Dental Center”. “The Center Director is Vadim Klimentiev, representative of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Orale Implantologie (DGOI) in Ukraine. Due to him, the Conference participants had a possibility to talk to such an outstanding expert in the field of implantology, as Professor Fred Bergmann”, - said Vasiliy Rybak. The Conference participants visited the Dental Department of Irpen City Polyclinic, where Professor Bergmann carried out consultation.

The Conference participants took part in the seminar “Educational Saturday”, which was carried out by the Dentistry Department of the Institute of Postgraduate Education, Bogomolets National Medical University. “Today almost two hundred students and interns have been present in the audience.  Presence of such experienced experts at the seminar is a milestone event. This is a great chance for newcomer doctors to enter the world of the most advanced technologies”, - said the Professor, Head of the Dentistry Department, Marina Antonenko.

In addition, Professor Fred Bergmann carried out consultations in the “European Dental Center” for the patients with the complex nature of disease, who are prepared for the operation. “I'm not the first time in Kiev. But this visit and participation in the Conference became very productive. I am delighted with those efforts, which my colleague, the Head of the “European Dental Center”, Mr. Klymentiev, applies to bring the new knowledge in the field of oral implantology to the Ukrainian doctors”, - said the President of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Orale Implantologie (DGOI), Dr Fred Bergman.
