I must admit to finding it disheartening that www.odq.qc.ca takes me to a page that requires a magnifying glass to find the link to convert it to English, but in the realpolitik of the world in which we live, I felt it served the purpose of globalism to share one of the hilites of the Journees Dentaires Internationales du Quebec from May 27th to 31st, 2011.

Premium manufacturers are driving the market for dental implants and
bone-craft substitutes in countries like China and India, according to
iData Research. In a market report, the Canada-based consulting company
has forecasted the market volume of both countries for dental implants
to exceed US$400 million by the year 2017. Strong double digit growth
rates were also predicted for Brazil, another potent global Emerging
Market
. This program to my mind is simply a harbinger of the obvious……and those who are beginning their careers or in the midst of them need to take a long hard look at the realpolitik of their future.
 

Implant Dentistry – Myths and Realities
Monday, May 30th – 8:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.  I 1:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Moderators: Dr. Pierre Boudrias, DMD, MSD, FRCD(c) and Dr. Michael Moscovitch, DDS, Prosth
Implant dentistry has matured into a predictable and widely used treatment option throughout the world. The selection of implants and their associated restorative components has often been questioned as to which system to choose for optimal outcomes.
Today’s marketplace is dominated by several leading companies whose efforts have advanced treatment performance to the current high levels of predictability. The scientific evidence supporting these implant systems is sometimes clouded by marketing terminology. The mission of this day is to allow for interaction between representatives of four market leading implant companies and the audience to help clarify the important issues needed to select the best treatment materials for our patients.
The surgical and prosthetic aspects of each implant system will be presented by a team of expert clinician-researchers in the field of implant dentistry.
They will provide insights into the biological, biomechanical, and surgical aspects of these systems. This information will be presented in a manner that will allow for a greater understanding in the choices we need to make for our patients in everyday implant practice.
The implant companies that are participating in this event are: Astra Tech, Nobel Biocare, Zimmer and Biomet 3i.
Morning Session
This session will allow for four short presentations (25 minutes) by each of the representative companies on the surgical and biological features and benefits that
the respective designs bring to clinical practice. A moderated question period will follow each presentation as well as at the end of the morning, allowing attendees an opportunity to ask significant questions of these participants in an interactive environment. 
Afternoon Session
This session will allow for four short presentations (25 minutes) by each of the representative companies on the biomechanical and prosthetic features that the respective designs bring to clinical practice. Esthetic and functional aspects will be highlighted. A moderated question period will follow each presentation as well as at the end of the afternoon, allowing attendees an opportunity to ask significant questions of these participants in an interactive environment
