HADI ANTOUN IS THE NEW WINNER
of the award for best speaker presented jointly by the SOP and Dentsply Maillefer.
He received this award during the training of 29 September from the hands of Meyer Fitoussi, president of the SOP, and Nicolas Mostowy, Northern Regional Manager - Normandie - Ile de France at Dentsply Maillefer, for his surgery performed lived at the Maison de la chimie, on the occasion of the "Implantology Day TV".
Meyer Fitoussi explained that the prize, which is is awarded every year since 1985, is intended to "bring to light talented speakers who honour our gallery and profession". He further thanked them: "There are many other reasons to continue to award this prize, he said. All speakers, famous or not, who gain access to the gallery of the SOP deserve recognition. They ensure not only our continuing education without financial compensation, but they do so while accepting the constraints of the SOP. We indeed require several sessions of preparation and rehearsal for the "speeches" to be clearly perceived by our faithful audience and to ensure that they meet their expectations. You can imagine what this means in time, energy and intellectual labour, all invested for the occasion. These speakers deserve to be honoured."
Regarding Hadi Antoun's performance, Meyer Fitoussi welcomed an operation performed "without a net" and a "clear and precise speech": "His role was to demystify implant placement, but especially to set its rules at all levels. It was an outstanding day of instruction. The indication and the installation procedure of an implant using the submerged technique were exposed point by point. Following a very accurate pre-implant study, he brilliantly installed an implant at tooth 15 live."
Meyer Fitoussi reminded to the members of the SOP who are up to date with their membership fees that they could watch (or re-watch) the full video of this operation (among others) on the SOP website.
Representing the company Dentsply Maillefer, Nicolas Mostowy said that his company "has always supported and continues to support renowned scientific societies and those practitioners who could make a positive contribution to the evolution of dentistry".
With his famous humility and modesty, Hadi Antoun warmly thanked the SOP and Dentsply Maillefer: "I've always enjoyed sharing my experience with you, but, at the same time, I have always earned a lot, especially through the exchange of ideas and experiences of fellow practitioners who characterize the SOP."
He, nonetheless, stressed the "immense pressure to try to always keep up" which awarded him this prize.
Hadi Antoun concluded his acceptance speech by rightfully quoting Bill Gates:
"What I do best is share my enthusiasm."
