After almost two years of primarily virtual meetings, the ITI Congress UK & Ireland, held in Edinburgh, Scotland on October 1 – 2, 2021, offered a unique opportunity for more than 400 participants to finally get together face to face again and be reunited with colleagues and friends.

The theme of the Congress was “Future Proof” and the scientific program aimed at providing an evidence-based review of where implant dentistry currently stands, what lies ahead and what today’s research tells us about the future. The Scientific Program Committee designed a vibrant program relevant to daily practice that appealed to experienced clinicians and novices alike, allowing participants to “future proof” their dental solutions. The strong international faculty made sure to provide many useful hints and tips that could be immediately applied in daily practice.

As a first, the Congress included programs for Nurses as well as a Dental Hygienists & Therapists, that were very well received, making it truly an event for the whole dental team. A dedicated Young ITI day for the younger generation of professionals was held on the day before the Congress.

“We were hoping to relaunch the ITI in our Section following all the disruption caused by COVID”, commented Eoin O’Sullivan, Education Delegate of the ITI Section UK & Ireland and Chair of the Scientific Program Committee. “We certainly achieved our goal as everyone was full of enthusiasm about the ITI and lots of people were asking how they can get more involved.”
