Dental Tribune International expands to Algeria
LEIPZIG, Germany: In 2019, the Dental Tribune International network welcomes Dental Tribune Algeria, led by Dr Ouahes Aziouez as its newest international licence partner. Dental Tribune–Algerian Edition will begin with quarterly publications focusing on the latest developments in dentistry within the Maghreb region.
A dental practitioner since 1997, Aziouez has enriched his career through his involvement in organising numerous continuing education sessions for dentists in the fields of implantology, prosthetics, periodontics, dental aesthetics and endodontics.
As founder and director of Innovation Development Project (IDP), formerly Infodental Algeria, as well as the clinical magazine dental infos/info dentaires, he has the necessary experience, knowledge and drive to expand the Dental Tribune brand and product portfolio into the French-speaking region of northern Africa.
“For me, the partnership represents an evolution. After years of being involved in the dental press in Algeria, this is a great opportunity to move on to a more international market,” said Aziouez, who also expressed his delight at Dental Tribune Algerian Edition being the first edition of Dental Tribune in the region.
The first issue of Dental Tribune Algerian Edition will be released in early March 2019, and will be formally introduced to the international dental community at IDS in Cologne. Furthermore, with a print run of 7,000 copies, it will constitute the official newspaper of Dentex Algeria, which will take place from 20 to 23 March in the country’s capital of Algiers.
DTI has announced that it foresees future growth into the wider Maghreb region (Morocco and Tunisia), as market trends show that it is an important up-and-coming sector that is highly involved and invested in continuing education.
