Oral Regeneration Topic

The Osteology Foundation selects a new Oral Regeneration Topic every six months. For each topic, a Webinar with an internationally renowned speaker is organised, an interview with the author of a Key Publication in this field is conducted, and a Scientific Radar is published featuring the most relevant publications on this topic. 

Everything is available online and free of charge at THE BOX, the Global Community Platform of the Osteology Foundation. Users have to register only once to have access to the Oral Regeneration Topic, as well as other useful information and tools for everybody interested in oral regenerative therapies.
