FOREWORD BY MDT. OLIVER BRIX
After beginning a new year, it is usually the time to reflect on the past year and look towards the new one. The question will be left where we will be going in our profession and what kind of changes in the dental field we will face. New innovations and techniques will be presented at the IDS in March and tendencies will be shown as a barometer for all of us. Investments might have to be made or strategies might have to be developed specifically in terms of communication and digital workflow. We seem to be in an unbridled period of time concerning networking and global connection. Is that a kind of blessing or rather a pressure with the danger of losing our identity as craft-minded professionals? I believe the answer is somewhere in the middle as usual. Material releases and associated innovations, very often push us to a higher level with better and easier results and longevity.
