Led by Dr. Maria Csillag, the creator of the Smylist philosophy & system, and Dr. Ajay Kakar, India head of Smylist, the team of Smylist dentists showcased some great cases done using the Smylist system.

The previous day on the 4 November, at a pre-conference session aptly titled “Maria’s Magic,” Dr. Maria Csillag created magic on one patient who had flown in from London and another patient who was a dentist himself. The dentist-patient was at the conference and came up on stage to explain how his problems are more than 90% sorted. Both of their symptoms of severe pain got resolved.

The four Smylist Masters - Dr. Shailesh Divecha, Dr. Tapan Desai, Dr. Nikhil Bahuguna, and Dr. Prabhjeet Sethi delivered outstanding presentations on varied aspects of the Smylist concept. They introduced the basic nuances of the Smylist idea to the delegates, many of whom were new to this concept.

The two International speakers, Dr. Justin Chi from the USA and Dr. Tamas Kovac from Serbia, presented how the Smylist flag flies high in the USA and Europe.

An immense appreciation came from Dr. Karunakar and Dr. Chittaranjan, deans of dental institutions.

Dr. Ajit Shetty and Dr. Mona Kakar laid the basis for the role of occlusion and its impact on restoring dentition. Dr. Sanghmitra Dasgupta showcased excellent cases and underlined the emphasis on how the aesthetics of the face and teeth are evolving. Dr. Rathin Das, an ardent Smylist user, described how the concept has impacted his prosthodontic work and how he is delivering dentistry at such a high level and treating not just the teeth but the entire body in his practice along with his wife, Dr. Vaishali Das.

The discovery of the conference was the Smylist brand ambassadors Dr. Sonal Yerpude, Dr. Darshita Visaria, Dr. Manan Visaria, and Dr. Vanita Barai.

Next-level plans

In her concluding presentation, Dr. Maria announced the 2nd Smylist conference, set to take place in Bangkok in the third week of October 2023. The Smylist academy will now also have two-and-a-half-day workshops by the Smylist masters around the country.
