From June 8-10, 2023, the Italian Dental Association AIO will celebrate the 12th edition its International Congress, entitled, “The Simplicity of Excellence” focusing on a multidisciplinary approach to dental treatment leading to consistent long-term results for patients.
A series of color-coded “Paths” have been created, each dedicated to a different dental discipline, making it easier for participants to follow their individual fields of interest: Green dedicated to Conservative Dentistry, Red to Periodontics, Blue to Pedodontics and Orthodontics and Yellow to Endodontics.
Participants will be able to earn 20 ADA CERP by attending the Friday afternoon, June 9th and the Saturday, June 10th, Plenary Sessions coupled with one of the Friday morning dedicated Paths: The Green Path held by Style Italiano, the Red Path hosting Prostho-Perio or the Blue Path honoring the 50th anniversary of the Cagliari School of Orthodontics.

Barone is the founder of the Italian Society of Oral Surgery and Implantology (SICOI), the Italian Academy of Osseointegration (IAO) and the Academy of Pediatric Oral Surgery-APOS while Clauser is a founding member of the Italian Society of Oral Surgery, the Tuscan Academy of Odontostomatological Research and of the European Association for Osteointegration. Their lecture will discuss how better knowledge of surgical pathologies combined with new operative techniques, permits the removal of deep bony impactions and large cystic lesions faster and with decreased risks of complications and discomfort, in both the adult and pedo patient.
