We are proud to have had one of our own dentists, Dr. Julian Conejo, participate in the 2014 International Quintessence Symposium on Periodontics and Restorative Dentistry, which took place from November 21st to November 23rd, 2014 in Sydney, Australia.
The Symposium is one of the most recognized events in the world of dentistry, gathering leading professionals from all over the world to share new procedures, techniques, and technological advancements in a series of lectures and workshops.
Attending the Symposium is a great opportunity for both dentists and managers of clinics. We are honored that Dr. Julian Conejo was chosen as one of the lecturers at event, demonstrating that Costa Rican dentists are recognized leaders along with their American and European counterparts.
Dr. Conejo’s participation included two lectures: “Biological Prosthesis” and “Latest Trends in Materials for Aesthetic Restorations.” He also led a workshop entitled, “Aesthetic Modifications to Monolithic Restorations.” The workshop provided an opportunity for the attendees to receive hands-on experience and personal attention from Dr. Conejo.
Dr. Conejo is one of the highest trained and experienced dentists in the world. He obtained his DDS from Universidad Latina in Costa Rica. Later on, he specialized in prosthodontics at Universidad Intercontinental in Mexico City. He continues to teach as a visiting professor at both universities.
At Colina Dental he works in prosthodontics with a special focus in CAD-CAM implantology, the latest method for restoring lost teeth through dental implants. Using computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) for imaging and creating dental restorations insures restorations that are virtually error-free.
In addition, to his practice at Colina Dental, he’s the director of Perlas de Porcelana Dental Laboratory and has founded the website jceducaciondental.com, dedicated to dental education. In 2008, he was awarded the Young Clinician Award at the Nobel Biocare World Tour, in Mexico City.
