Date: 25 April  2019 to 27 April 2019


The upcoming International Osteology Symposium will take place on 25-27 April 2019 in Barcelona, Spain. The well-established symposium focusing on oral regeneration therapies not only has a new location but will also feature new topics, new formats and new speakers – all under the new title, “The NEXT REGENERATION”.


The chairmen of Osteology Barcelona 2019 are Christoph Hämmerle, Switzerland, and Maurício Araújo, Brazil. In their welcome letter they explain, “The title the NEXT REGENERATION combines the key aspects of the symposium in Barcelona: on the one hand, the next generation of regenerative therapies, i.e. the latest developments in techniques and technologies; and on the other hand, the next generation of dentists, not only as attendees of the programme, but also featuring upcoming experts in the field of oral tissue regeneration.”


Accordingly, the chairmen have planned specific sessions with young dentists presenting oral tissue regeneration in a nutshell, and also special sessions for researchers. Furthermore, innovative concepts and formats, such as the Osteology Case Session, will also be part of the programme, allowing more clinicians to actively participate.


“But despite all the new aspects, one thing has definitely not changed”, the chairmen further explain. “In April 2019 the International Osteology Symposium is again the place to be for all oral and maxillofacial surgeons, periodontists and oral health professionals interested in implant dentistry and regenerative therapies, where internationally renowned experts will present the current state of knowledge and research, and link science with practice in oral regeneration.”


For three days the participants at Osteology Barcelona 2019 will have the possibility of delving intensively into the current state of knowledge and research in oral tissue regeneration, and also getting a glimpse into the future, with novel techniques and materials.
