SEOUL, South Korea: Global dental implant manufacturer Osstem Implant has been involved in a number of educational and social enrichment activities abroad. On 6 July, its Vietnamese subsidiary donated Vussen toothpaste and toothbrushes to an educational facility associated with SOS Children’s Villages International, an international non-governmental organisation providing assistance to children in need. The local subsidiary also invited a dentist to provide an oral healthcare programme for the children.
In the Philippines, Osstem’s subsidiary visited a local child welfare centre to provide an oral healthcare programme for children along with oral care products and food. An Osstem official said, “We will continue providing these programmes in order to give the support we have received from local customers back to our neighbours in need.”
On 16 and 17 June, Osstem’s Middle Eastern subsidiary provided clinical implant training to dental students and dentists from Tanzania and Tunisia. This was the first digital dental training programme held by Osstem in Africa.
Explaining the company’s plan to continue providing clinical training in Africa to assist in medical technology advancement in local communities, Dae-Hui Jang, president of Osstem’s Middle Eastern subsidiary, said: “In the past, dental impressions were made by using an impression material. Now, a small intra-oral scanner that fits into the mouth is used to obtain data, and a simulation programme is used for surgical practice. The trend of digitalisation is sweeping through the global dental industry, and many dental companies have entered the African market.” In May, Osstem’s Middle Eastern subsidiary also provided a free clinical implant lecture and practice training to dental students and dentists from Senegal.
Osstem is also participating in international cultural exchange events and sponsorship activities. Its Uzbekistan subsidiary officially sponsored the 14th Dr Baek Mun Jong Cup International Open Taekwondo Championships, held to celebrate the 31st anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between South Korea and Uzbekistan. This event, which took place over five days from 20 May, was attended by around 3,000 athletes from 12 countries, including the US, Central Asian countries and South Korea. Jong-Hwi Mun, president of the Uzbekistan subsidiary, commented: “Like we did last year, we participated in the Taekwondo competition as an official main sponsor. The Uzbek people’s high level of interest in the South Korean culture means they have gained a favourable impression of South Korean companies. We will continue supporting various cultural events in Uzbekistan.”
Osstem recently opened subsidiaries in Portugal, Italy and the Netherlands. The company exports products to 93 countries and sells these products through 36 subsidiaries in 32 countries. Aside from its plan to expand the global sales network by increasing these numbers to 50 subsidiaries in 46 countries by 2026, Osstem, as a global dental industry leader representing South Korea, will continue to offer educational and social enrichment programmes.
