Learning together. Growing together.
Ivoclar's Summer School program included product training, lectures by renowned experts and professional advice on how to interact with patients and the best way to kickstart their own career.

Also offering them the chance to connect with each other and learn from experienced members of the industry.
Ivoclar's Summer School offers the ideal conditions for successful networking with peers and professionals. Participants can personally meet students from all over the world, get to know new perspectives and become part of the dental community. The opportunity for students to connect is just as important to Ivoclar as providing an exciting new learning environment.
Summer School goes international.
After a successful start in 2022, the Ivoclar Summer School program expanded in 2023. The originally European based offer went global – now including locations in North America, Asia and yet again Europe. Students could choose freely which time and location worked best for them, coming together with like minded students from across the world.
In total over 117 students from 28 countries participated in this year’s Summer School – making every location a success. “We are delighted and happy that the program was well received by students across the world.
