Oral Reconstruction Foundation
The Oral Reconstruction Foundation exists to drive progress in oral reconstruction for the benefit of the people who need it most: patients. We firmly believe that the best way to serve patients’ needs and ensure ongoing therapeutic improvement is for universities, dental practitioners and industry to work closely together and share their expertise and research findings.
Oral Reconstruction Foundation U.S. Section
The primary goal of the Oral Reconstruction Foundation is to provide ongoing, top-quality reconstructive dentistry education to facilitate the exchange of knowledge between dental practitioners. As a continuing education provider through the Academy of General Dentistry, the OR Foundation presents and supports lectures, seminars, hands-on courses, live surgeries and surgical partnerships to further enable dental clinicians from all disciplines to improve the lives of patients.
HISTORY OF THE ORAL RECONSTRUCTION FOUNDATION
The Oral Reconstruction (OR) Foundation was originally founded in 2006 as the CAMLOG Foundation by the CAMLOG Company in Basel, Switzerland and relaunched in 2016 as the independent OR Foundation. The US Section of the OR Foundation was founded that same year.
From the outset, the OR Foundation has supported basic and applied research projects, granted research funding to young scientists, and promoted training and continuous education. It has established a networking platform for international experts in a wide range of disciplines to foster the permanent exchange of knowledge and ideas.
The Foundation firmly believes that the best way to consolidate the scientific basis of oral reconstruction and serve patients’ needs is to promote close international collaboration between universities, practitioners, technicians, and industry. Activities organized or planned under the patronage of the OR Foundation respect these principles in the same way they support the Foundation’s objective: teaming up science and education to serve the patient.

The Future of the Art of Implant Dentistry
April 26-28, 2018 · Rotterdam, Netherlands
The 2018 Global Symposium under the theme “The Future of the Art of Implant Dentistry,” offered participants an outlook of implant dentistry and related fields along with sessions completely dedicated to digital workflow and ceramic implants. Additional scientific and practical findings about surgical and prosthetic concepts were also presented.
The time-proven and mostly sold-out practical Workshops took place on Thursday, April 26, 2018. Renowned speakers used theory and practical exercises to teach small groups concepts on current topics such as 3D planning, digital workflow, treatment concepts for peri-implant complications, and much more.
In addition, young and aspiring scientists and practitioners were offered a broader platform. The authors of five selected posters received the unique opportunity to present their work in a short presentation in the main plenum.
The two-day conference conclude with an emerging and provocative topic “Complications – What can we learn from them?”
