The HK ITI week: the great comeback of a classic!
The ITI Education weeks have been flagship events, organised each year in few selected places of the world. The Hong Kong ITI week in particular was the first and only in Asia and one of the most successful, with hundreds of alumni and loyal fans all over the world. It was certainly no coincidence: it was a week with a great pedigree, founded by Professor NP Lang in 2009, who transplanted in Hong Kong the experience from 35 years of the “Les Diablerets” weeks in Switzerland and a lasting treatment philosophy of placing implants within a Comprehensive Care Plan. His successor, Professor Mattheos extended the philosophy with modern concepts of surgery and prosthodontics and the ITI HK Education week was an educational highlight every year, bringing together a dream-team of world class experts and an audience from all sides of the world!
The old classic is now coming back in September 2021! With all its heritage in comprehensive care, but revamped to address the new challenges of the era of digital practice, the ITI HK Education week of 2021 will introduce a brand new dream-team and many new concepts! Under the directing of Prof. Mattheos, the HK ITI week will bring you the pioneering duo from Geneva Prof. Irena Sailer and Mr. Vincent Fehmer, our old friend Prof. Bjarni Pjetursson from Iceland, Prof. Chatchai Kunavisarut from Bangkok and more to be announced soon!
Don’t miss the explosive start of an new classic in September 2021!
