Amazing new technologies such as virtual or augmented reality, 3D-printing or CRISPR will revolutionize dentistry and our whole attitude towards oral health in the future. Let’s look at the top 8 digital technologies.
The elderly might often get the impression that technological revolution takes only the young and capable into account. There might be some truth to it but for everyone’s greatest luck, it started to change and I believe it should continue. Let me show you how technological developments for the elderly could help them and change their quality of life for the better.

Improving medicine with the help of digital health technologies is actually a bigger challenge than rocket science (no offense to physicists) itself in astronautics.
It is as simple as ABC: if you are thinking about your future now, please choose Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). If you are way in your career, please send this to those who are still considering their options.
Tech companies could change healthcare with their knowledge about disruption and could lead the way to medical innovation. Why isn’t that happening already?
We have no idea what the rapid technological development, the so-called fourth industrial revolution will bring upon us in the next decades. There is only one certainty: we will need a new set of skills to find our place in the future.
