1st International Congress of World Academy of Growth Factors & Stem Cells in Dentistry
Athens – Greece, 6-8 May 2016
1st WAGRO congress took place in the ancient city of Athens, where Hippocrates started think tanking on the science of medicine.
As such we started the first congress of growth factors in the beautiful capital of Greece. Esteemed scientists from all over the world, members, professors and most of all friends of the community we call world academy of growth factors and stem cells, came together on an effort to promote the key ingredients of growth factors in medicine generally and dentistry specifically.
After 3 days of lectures and workshops we did not only start a movement on the benefits of growth factors we revolutionised the field.
The idea is to forget that we know, throw the rules away and just assume we are back at basic training. Just absorb the new information that could change the way we process our medical procedures. For example, forget about sinus lift, do a sinus perforation while using IPG technique.
Everybody who participated came with that open mind, and with such we debated and shared knowledge that brought our science many years forward in just a few days.
It was a proud moment for all of us because we did it together as a group and as such we hope to expand our community into the next congress.
Hope to see you all there.
