WELCOME TO THE LAKE TEGERNSEE - AMERICA MEETS EUROPE 2016
The German Academy of Esthetic Dentistry (DGÄZ) is pleased to announce their traditional invitation to
the 11th International Esthetic Conference at Lake Tegernsee. Together with our cooperation partners -
the German Association of Oral Implantology (DGI), the Italian Academy of Prosthetic Dentistry (AIOP), and the Seattle
Study Club (SSC) - we are happy to welcome members of the dental community from all around the world.
Do you remember? Let us recall the milestone conference 'America meets Europe' organized by the
DGÄZ in 2008. Today, speakers and participants alike still think back to the lively discussions,
which were both controversial and instructive.
Following the extraordinary success of the 2013 IFED World Congress in Munich, the DGÄZ received
ongoing highly positive feedback and has continued to make an impact in the community.
Tying in with this tradition, our 11th International Congress will scrutinize the current trends and
developments in dentistry. The scientific program is planned by a well-known committee and aims to dive
into detail as much as possible to generate answers relevant for our daily work in dentistry.
The scientific program especially, but also the industry workshops and the trade show, are always
perceived as particular highlights. The new location offers a generous setting with plenty of space and
excellent opportunities for knowledge exchange and to establish new friendships.
We highly appreciate your participation and recommend timely registration to get the early bird fee and,
more importantly, to secure a hotel room reservation.
Let us continue our tradition of developing controversial discussions to optimize our skills for our daily
We welcome the international family of dentists and dental technicians in the new Event Arena at lake
Tegernsee from October 6 to 8, 2016.
The largest professional challenges we face in our day-to-day work are concerned with conceptual
planning of treatments. Though specializing in certain treatment areas is important, a holistic view
of each patient should also be kept in mind.
Interdisciplinary communication and cautious strategic planning determine whether procedures are successful.
Therefore, I, especially in my occupation as an orthodontist, am excited to announce that representatives
from all specialties are present at the renowned international DGÄZ conference this year, and that planning
and treatment across the disciplines is focal.
From a scientific perspective, it is to be seen as very positive that the necessary knowledge - this time
in cooperation with the DGI - will be presented to you in a concentrated form during this conference.
Science meets practice, American philosophies of treatment encounter European ones. Controversies are
to be anticipated and need sharply analyzed and summarized. We can expect to gather a large and exciting
array of new insights and useful learnings from the list of exceptional speakers.
In retrospect of our first meeting in 2008, I am looking forward to an almost legendary upcoming event
this year. In particular, I feel honored to contribute to shaping this event by giving a talk on one of
my focal research areas. Please feel free to update your own personal 'State of the Art' during this
promising communal conference!
I wish all participants a great event filled with animated professional and personal exchange and am
looking forward to welcoming you to the beautiful lake Tegernsee.
Prof. Dr. Bärbel Kahl-Nieke
President of the German Society of Dental, Oral and Craniomandibular Sciences (DGZMK)
I want to cordially invite you to come to the marvelous German lake of Tegernsee and to join the International
Congress of the German Academy of Esthetic Dentistry DGÄZ.
The congress concept "America meets Europe" and the outstanding international faculty promise a high
knowledge transfer by controversial, but efficient discussions in step with actual practice.
What are the
challenges in both continents and are there really different treatment concepts and solutions? The immense
progress in dental technology and treatment possibilities with the implicit upcoming controversies will be
discussed and the two continental teams have to present their treatment solutions for complex patient cases.
In competitive and fruitful discussions together and with the audience they have to stand up for their position.
I am looking forward to welcome you personally to this outstanding meeting combining highest scientific standards
with Bavarian sociability.
Professor Robert Sader,
President of the German Academy of Esthetic Dentistry (DGÄZ)
Esthetics are not an end in itself, but ideally rather the results of dental treatment that takes its
inspiration from nature.
Modern concepts of implantology aid us in this and today allow restoration even
in highly complex cases. However, as the range of possibili-ties grows, so do our and our patients'
expectations of therapeutic results.
No one field offers solutions and concepts for the complex challenges
of modern dental medicine: progress can result only from interdisciplinary cooperation.
Especially when this
cooperation occurs across international borders, or, as is the case with the 11th international
DGÄZ conference, across the Atlantic, I expect to see inspiring and enlightening out-comes.

Past-President of the German Association of Oral Implantology (DGI)
The Italian Academy of Prosthetic Dentistry (AIOP) is looking
forward to welcoming you in Tegernsee on the occasion of the DGÄZ 11th International Conference.
The Scientific Committee has provided a very interesting program: some of the most well known speakers,
pooled together as two different teams, will face on stage showing their approach in treating challenging cases.
In addition, several more speakers will go deeply into hot topics of our daily work, in order to set up the state
of the art in dentistry.
AIOP is really proud to be a partner of the worldwide famous
scientific societies and to have the chance of sharing its knowledge
in prosthetic dentistry.
Don't miss this unique event!
President of Italien Academy of Prosthodontics (AIOP)
The Seattle Study Club organization is thrilled to join the German Academy of
Esthetic Dentistry in welcoming you to a special gathering of clinicians from near and far,
all committed to a comprehensive interdisciplinary approach to treatment.
and interactive sessions at this summit, the value and benefits of a collaborative case
planning environment should become more clear and impact the way we think about practicing dentistry.
In SSC tradition, all in attendance will be encouraged to engage fellow attendees and create
opportunities for spirited discussion following each session.
We look forward to bringing together a community of like-minded clinicians,
all willing to share their experience and knowledge.
