Futudent had a group of Japanese dental professonals visiting Finland in early September. The group of dentists and dental hygienists had two days full of visits to dental schools and companies in the Helsinki region.
On the first morning of the visit, Jouko Nykänen, Planmeca's vice president of sales offered the group a tour at the new Planmeca factory in Herttoniemi and gave us a presentation about Planmeca's history and future.
Planmeca's showroom in Herttoniemi introduces their beautiful equipment including dental units and imaging systems. As a novelty, they have an integration with Futudent's dental video camera and their dental unit to show. Dental video camera integrated to the unit light makes shooting videos stable and allows a wider view.
The group got a good view on Finnish dental education by visiting the Metropolia University of Applied Sciences and University of Helsinki. Both schools use video cameras in their curriculum and the students have a chance to use Futudent's camera to support their learning.
Doctor Yasuko Takeuchi (on the right) was the organizing power behind the excursion and guided the group with her positive personality.
First day culminated to a lovely dinner at the beautiful Le Havre in the center of Helsinki.
