Dear members of the DGI, dear readers of the ZZI,

I’d like to begin with the 2012 joint congress of the three sister societies DGI (German Society for Implantology), ÖGI (Austrian Society of Implantology) and SGI (Swiss Society for Implantology) in Bern, Switzerland, which as every year was held on the first weekend of Advent. We were very pleased to note that our carefully calculated estimate of 1,000 participants was comfortably exceeded. We were able to welcome 1,473 participants. The majority – 54 % – came from Germany, 42 % from Switzerland and 4 % from Austria. From many individual discussions and feedbacks we know that the vast majority of participants considered the congress in Bern a highly successful specialist meeting in an excellent ambience, which we will remember positively for a very long time.

Implantological Fall

Just a while back a good friend and colleague gave me a book by Philippe D. Ledermann. Unlike probably expected, it was not a textbook on medical dentistry covering immediate loading and restoration of implants but part three “Fall” of his autobiographical novel entitled “The Paper Parents” (“Die Papiereltern”). The first two parts “Fall” and “Summer” were published more than ten years back and quickly made it into the bestseller lists for novels. Ledermann is not only considered a contemporary witness of a whole chapter of implantology history, but also one of its most formative protagonists. During his professional life he has had to cope with so many doubts about the paradigm shift concerning implant-loading that his memories on the topic span three volumes of a book (1). Of course I’m particularly interested in the implantology chapters where an absurd status image of the dental profession of the time is presented which almost led to him being struck off. Ledermann describes the early days of implantology with all its tortuous paths and the very personal hostility he experienced. Those readers who are only mildly interested in fiction and poetry will find at least in these chapters a vital description of the critical area of conflict between university lecturers and general dentists.

There are differences

There are differences

Were you at the record-breaking dental show in Cologne, Germany? According to the final report of the Koelnmesse 125,000 visitors were – in theory – able to view 2058 exhibitors and their products and services from 56 countries. But some would only have been there for the “show” ranging from the harmless throwing of T-shirts printed with the company logo into the crowd to other questionable presentations.

“Research creates knowledge – knowledge creates the future”

Our DGI (German Society for Implantology) has started 2013 under a positive omen and we all have good reason to look forward to the future. The DGI under the past presidency of Prof. Dr. Dr. Hendrik Terheyden has laid a solid basis for the future, which should now be strengthened and expanded.
