Guest Editorial:  International Healthcare Volunteering

Feedback:  0 comments, 0 ratings

Abstract: International healthcare volunteering is becoming increasingly popular. Many dental professionals and students from developed world countries volunteer for a legion of programmes predominantly in the developing world. Individual volunteers’ motives are varied and include social responsibility, a wish ‘to help others’, to experience a sense of adventure, religious motivations and career-based motivations.

iTero Webinar – Why should we use iTero for that?


Receive 1 hour free CPD from Dental Update when you register with this webinar

During this webinar Eoin O’Sullivan will take you through his personal journey with digital scanning, explaining how he found himself in a dilemma when he had to replace his first iTero, after he had assumed that the scanner’s capabilities would transition to focus on orthodontics when it was bought out by Align Technology in March 2011. He will share his thoughts about which scanner would best suit his restorative practice, and why he opted for the next generation of iTero over all the other scanners on the market.
