LONDON, UK: The effects of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic have been felt at every level in the UK. Many were shocked to hear that UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson was recently admitted to an intensive care unit for COVID-19-related health complications. Though countless British dental professionals have temporarily ceased treating patients as a result of the global crisis, a number of them have since redirected their efforts towards helping those in the community who need it the most.
IRVINE, Calif., U.S.: BIOLASE, the global leader in dental lasers, recently hosted its inaugural Advancing Dentistry Symposium in San Diego. The event took place on Oct. 18–19 and hosted more than 250 professionals working in the dental field. Visitors to the symposium had the opportunity to enjoy collaboration within the oral health community and immerse themselves in education related to the technologies and techniques that are advancing dentistry today.
