The 35th of the successful series of W&H Innovation Days in Latin America took place on November 22nd, 2017 in the Chilean capital, Santiago. Originally started by Area Manager Oliver Goetzendorff, this modern exhibition concept is a magnet for dentists, surgeons and implantologists in the region since 2011. “We lay strong emphasis on making this an exclusive event with an ideal combination of theory and practice in the applications of our products. We work closely with accredited dentists and surgeons. Our visitors are shown their clinical methods and how to use our W&H products efficiently,” says Oliver Goetzendorff. “The high rate of repeat attendance at our events clearly shows that we are offering important added value that can be applied to the participants daily work.”
