Nella giornata di martedì 1 Aprile ’14 ci è venuta a trovare la Prof.ssa Omur Polat Ozsoy direttamente dalla Turchia. Ci ha intrattenuti con una bellissima lezione, sui seguenti argomenti:

1. Espansione mascellare

2. Trattamento dell’agenesia degli incisivi laterali

3. Movimento accellerato dei denti

4. Trattamento chirurgico-ortodontico di casi complessi

La lezione, trasmessa anche in FAD, ha catturato l’attenzione degli specializzandi che hanno partecipato attivamente con domande di approfondimento sui topics trattati.

Dopo la conferenza, la Prof.ssa si è fermata con noi, per una piacevole visita al reparto osservando gli studenti a lavoro.
