Drs Jim and Kevin recently returned from a three-day course in Singapore with Dr Marius Steigmann
from Germany. The lectures and hands on component were on soft tissue development and grafting
around implants in the aesthetic zone. Dr Steigmann is a world leader in Implantology and as well as
running his own institute in Heidelberg and lecturing all around the world, is also on the staff at the
University of Michigan in the US. The course was a continuation of a three-day seminar we attended
earlier in 2018 in Bangkok. There were attendees from all around Australasia.
Following the course Jim travelled on to the Philippines and spent a week of R and R on a couple of the islands in Bacuit Bay off Palawan Island with his partner Sandra. He is a keen scuba diver and was able to do four dives in the area, as well as exploring some of the other islands and lagoons. It is a beautiful pristine area with virtually no rubbish or pollution. Alas work duties called and he returned to work on Tuesday 17th.
