The First Inaugural Dentinal Tubules Congress 2017

Things have been very busy this month, starting with the FIRST EVER Inaugural Dentinal Tubules Congress!

Tubules Family!

Dentinal Tubules has come a long way since I first started getting involved in 2014; from a video library to live stream videos - 2017 has been a great year for Tubules and this October there was some more exciting news announced; for those who were there to see it at the congress, the news of the new Tubules Foundation was very emotional and Dhru is certainly one of the most inspirational people I know!

The 2 days of the Congress were held at the Grove Hotel in Watford which was a great venue (the England football team were staying there while we were there!) and the theme of the Congress was Top Tips in Dentistry. 

The first day of the congress was a hands-on day where delegates could choose which course they wanted to learn from. Some fantastic names like Dr Mahul Patel, Dr Jason Smithson and Prof Giulio Rasperini (just a few) were there to share their knowledge and expertise in their fields of dentistry. I chose to refresh some of my rusty surgical skills with hands on sinus lifts and ridge-split technique with Dr Sam Lee and Dr Arthur Lyford from the USA. 

I really enjoyed the hands-on element: we must have put the local butchers out of business with the supply of pig jaws we had access to!


With a little help, me avoiding that pesky sinus!


After the usual catch-ups with the Tubules gang in the evening, we were up again bright and early for a packed day of lectures from another amazing line-up: Prof Guilio Rasperini, Dr Carlo Poggio, Dr James Baker, Dr Jason Smithson, Dr Finlay Sutton, Dr Sam Lee, Dr Alessandro Conti, Dr Roberto Rossi and Davide Bertazzo

There was a huge range of topics discussed with some excellent cases and presentations discussed. The atmosphere was different from any other conference  I have been to: a much more interactive audience that truly represented the Tubules family ethos. 

As I mentioned above, Dhru announced some amazing news with the Dentinal Tubules Foundation helping raise funds for education for the poorest across the world! Of course there was a little fun as well (which is becoming a bit of a Tubules tradition), with the Mannequin Challenge which you see can the video for below! Can you spot yourself?




The conclusion of the conference of course was a rowdy Tubules party! It was great to catch up with the Tubules family and share the vision that Dhru has created with his Tubules team. Well and truly #Tubulised! I can't wait for next year!

Did you go to the Congress? What was your favourite talk? Let me know in the comments below.
