Curaden, an oral hygiene company based in Switzerland, has collaborated with the International Team for Implantology (ITI), an academic organisation promoting evidence-based education and research in implant dentistry. The partners have signed a sponsorship agreement to make greater advances in preventive dental care.
Curaden is one of the first sponsoring partners in a new ITI initiative aimed at building longer-term relationships with a small number of companies in the industry. Curaden will work more closely with the ITI for an initial period of three years. The agreement will primarily cover ITI congresses and symposia, as well as the provision of education materials to the ITI community in its field of expertise. Curaden thus joins a select group of companies known as industry partners of the ITI.
“This global ITI initiative is based on a modular sponsorship approach that allows us to address the individual needs of our sponsors,” said Charlotte Stilwell, president of ITI. “It represents a mutually beneficial, longer-term commitment made by carefully selected companies that share similar educational and scientific evidence-based principles as the ITI. We are delighted to welcome Curaden on board.”
“For Curaden, this new collaboration is a big step in the right direction,” said Ueli Breitschmid owner and CEO of Curaden. “It will further develop our global network and strengthen the power we already have as a unique player in the fight for prevention thinking. Maintenance is an important topic, also for the ITI – this is where we can put a lot of our know-how. We will benefit from each other especially in education and in the area of appearances and recognisability – and that worldwide.”
