Webinars

NIOM regularly offers free webinars. These cover a wide range of topics, and the common denominator is clinical relevance for dentists and dental professionals. Each webinar presentation lasts for 20 to 30 minutes. The first “live” presentations of a webinar are each followed by a Q&A session with the presenter.

Welcome to our next webinar:

Killing biofilm – mission impossible?

Bacterial communities on teeth and mucous membranes are known as biofilms and cause caries and other infectious diseases in the oral cavity. As a clinician, there are different strategies and methods to implement to minimize or manage this problem in the treatment of patients.

In this webinar you will learn about:

  • Dental biofilms and their properties
  • Fighting biofilms
  • Antimicrobials and caries

This webinar will be presented by Senior Scientist Håkon Valen on May 24, 2018.
Choose what time is best for you: 12:00 or 16:00 (Oslo time).

We look forward to seeing you there!
