Vienna School of Interdisciplinary Dentistry

Education in Occlusion Medicine


The mastermind

The long tradition of science

and education in dentistry are closely linked to Vienna and associated in particular to Prof. Rudolf Slavicek. He is known as a pioneer and mastermind in interdisciplinary dentistry. Prof. Slavicek definitely is an opinion leader in the field of functional diagnostics and interdisciplinary dentistry. Since many years his work in scientific research and development has been focused on biomechanical relations and functional determinants of the masticatory organ. His holistic functional therapy concept has increasingly gained acceptance. His leading development work for e.g. functional diagnostic instruments has already had effects on many products.

As a logical consequence of the comprehensive work of Prof Rudolf Slavicek, VieSID was founded as a non-profit organisation by members of the Slavicek family in 2008. First, a cooperation agreement was signed with the Education Center of the Dental Association in Vienna (ZAFI). Now VieSID cooperates for all its courses in Vienna with the University Clinic of Dentistry of the Medical University of Vienna where all courses take place.

Education has been and still is one of Prof. Slavicek’s main objectives. He inspires his students with his outstanding knowledge, his enthusiasm and his love for solid didactics. Many of his students are the young and dedicated lecturers of the future.
