From the 29th of June till the 2nd of July graduating students and young dentist met for the Dental Summer event at Timmendorfer Strand, to join a peak of professional dental training. After the number of participants already broke the record last year , this year the organization committee of the IFG (Internationale Fortbildungsgesellschaft) could delight even on an even higher number of interested parties.
Like last year already, the event was supported by the BdZA e.V. (the German young dentist association). Already ahead of the dental summer event the new executive board of the BdZA, in office since IDS 2011, met for a workshop. The Dental Summer event with a lot of participants was a great setting for the BdZA to discuss ideas and future goals with young dentists. The number of 250 graduating students and young dentists attending this year’s event did once more emphasize the efforts of IFG (Internationale Fortbildungsgesellschaft) for postgraduate training of young dentists. On the agenda of the BdZA workshop were not only the reports about the ongoing projects like “Working abroad” or “Salary of assistant dentists”; also subject was the “ Postgraduate education for young dentist”-which was already well performed at the Dental Summer event 2011.
Not just the beautiful environment of the Timmendorfer Strand enticed young colleagues to join the Dental Summer. The IFG together in cooperation with the BdZA gave out 250 complimentary tickets for two days of the educational program for young dentists via www.dents.de, the booking of additional days were possible with great discount on the attendance fee.
In this amazing setting of Timmendorfer Strand a lot of well known contributors were present to offer a high-end educational program for young dentists. The schedule was pleased to young dentists needs and contained lectures by Prof. Alexander Gutowski “function and occlusion- farewell or resurrection” or by Prof. Bumann who lectured about Functional Analysis of the jaw joints. Another highlight was the 2 days workshop of Prof. Dr. Hans Eberspächer under the topic “Top-team coaching for your dental clinic”, a workshop also fitted for dental assistance and employees. An additional highlight was the introduction to the Art of Shaolin introduced by Gerhard Conzelmann and the monk Shi Yan Yan.
Dental Winter coming up
In between the lectures the participant could relax at the beach with a nice cooled beverage and enjoy the sunshine especially in the first days.
The well performed educational workshops and speeches were rounded off by exciting after work parties, which took place in various locations of the MARITIM Hotel Timmendorfer Strand, if at the beach or in the garden of the hotel the atmospheres was relaxed and benefit the communication between the young dentists. The top party took place on the 1st of July, live-music and free drinks let people celebrate till the early morning; the crowd was surprised by the breaking news- that there will be a dental winter in Ischgl for the first time in 2012!
Teambuilding for the beach volleyball tournament
Next to the high class educational program a 3 days beach volleyball tournament took place and was a good alternation to the knowledge acquisition. The organization committee was inspired by the worldwide reputation of the Timmendorfer Strand as a beach volleyball Mecca. In teams by 4 drawn by lots the participants got to know each other better and did fight together to win the match. Even more important than the victory was playing in a team and cheering for the other teams, all this made it to a great group experience. The participants of the Dental Summer event did enjoy their free time on the beach even with changing weather from cloudy to bright sunshine.
