In October 2010, Paul Stone accepted the position of President of the European Association for Osseointegration. The EAO is one of the most highly regarded implant associations in the world and has members in over 40 countries. The EAO intends to be the "leading voice in Europe for implant dentistry" and with over 3500 attendees at the recent annual scientific congress in Glasgow is probably already a reality.
Paul was Scientific Chairman for this international event which brought together clinicians from over 65 countries and an invited educational faculty of speakers and moderators from all over the world (including Hong Kong, Australia and the USA). The theme of the congress was ‘Controversies in Implant Dentistry' and as Paul explained:
There are now many different methods of treatment, some with very little scientific evidence to support them. As the Scientific Chairman, I was very keen to bring some evidence-based solutions to show how much more information we now have about the most predictable ways to treat our patients."
Colleagues can therefore be assured that their referred patients will be treated in a specialist environment with the most appropriate and well-documented methods available.
