Department of Prosthodontics and Crown & Bridge, Kalinga Institute of Dental Sciences (KIDS) in association with IDA Temple city Bhubaneswar Branch organized KIDS WEBCON 2021, an exclusive virtual National Symposium, on 27th & 28th October 2021.
The smile is an important reflection of one’s self; a valuable ornament we wear every day. Any deformity or accident resulting in damage to this beautiful asset of human face poses a huge challenge for the clinician. With the advent of newer material and technologies it is essential for us to know the recent advances in esthetic treatment planning. Keeping this perspective in mind, the theme of the conference was “Crafting Smiles with Innovative Approach” focusing on digital smile designing, implants and CAD CAM technology.
