NIOM regularly offers free webinars. They cover a wide range of topics; all of clinical relevance for dentists and dental professionals. Each live webinar is followed by a Q&A session with the presenter.

We hope our webinars will provide you with both inspiration and new insight. Here is a short summary of the webinars we have held so far. You can view them on our YouTube channel.

Welcome to our next webinar:
