W&H – actively supporting the next generation of dentists
The European Dental Students Association (EDSA) provides European dental students with a valuable platform for exchanging information, sharing experiences and building on their specialist knowledge. It is the EDSA's aim to work in close collaboration with companies active in the industry to continually offer its members novel training and development opportunities.
W&H supports Nepalese school
Thanks to the generosity of W&H and various other Austrian donors, it was possible to help with the reconstruction work of a school for around 150 children in Gorakhani (Nepal). Mainly during a earthquake in May 2015, countless facilities in the area were severely damaged, including the school building, which now could be rebuilt, with the nonbureaucratic assistance and financial contribution.
Sterilization in record time
The future of dental practices is in automation and digitalization. Computer-assisted processes facilitate day-to-day tasks, offering reliability and efficiency at the same time. Devices such as Lisa and Assistina 3x3 help to create a balanced hygiene workflow which conserves resources. Seizing these opportunities allows dentists and practice teams to save valuable time, which they can then devote to their patients. (Authors: Jenny Hoffmann, Oemus Media AG)
