IDEM Singapore 2014 offers something for everyone

If you were one of the dental professionals who missed out on attending the last IDEM Singapore meeting because it was a sell-out, then register now! IDEM Singapore 2014 conference and exhibition will be staged on April 4-6, 2014 and full registration is less than $200 (SGD 210) for dental technicians.


"IDEM Singapore 2014 offers a tremendous opportunity for clinicians and technicians to participate in a world class 3-day educational event at a price that seems too good to be true," said Joseph Allbeury, publisher of eLABORATE and organiser Koelnmesse's media partner for Australia and New Zealand.

"When we helped promote this event two years ago, we concentrated on promoting the value of attending to hear such an outstanding speaker line-up and the tremendous new entertainment options Singapore has to offer, like Universal Studios and the Marina Bay Sands casino complex.

"However, we never realised what truly great value IDEM Singapore 2014 represents as the registration cost to hear such a phenomenal speaking line-up is so low. Because the majority of attendees at IDEM Singapore 2014 are international visitors from countries with varying economic demographics, the conference fee, by Australian and New Zealand standards, is very low.

"In 2012, we had over 200 Australians attend IDEM but many more missed out because the 2000 participant ceiling was reached more than a month before the event, making it a sell-out."

IDEM's first Dental Technician Forum will take place on April 5-6 with sessions specially tailored for Dental Technicians, from small prosthetic cases to complicated implantology clinical cases. This two-day dedicated scientific program will include groundbreaking lectures from key opinion leaders, workshops and a trade show focused entirely on the dental laboratory profession.

2 levels of exhibition

With over 16,000 square metres of exhibition space and close to 450 exhibitors, IDEM Singapore is set to be over 30% larger in 2014. Organized by Koelnmesse and the Singapore Dental Association, the 8th edition of the event will feature a total of twelve national pavilions groups from Australia, France, Germany, Italy, Korea, Singapore, Switzerland, Taiwan, UK and USA; plus two new pavilions from China and Japan.

NEW: Round table innovation

The world renowned Ray Williams will be moderating IDEM Singapore's first ever round table symposium entitled Dental Implants at the Forefront - 2014 and Beyond.

The Round Table symposium at IDEM Singapore 2014, will see Ray Williams joined by three international experts:

  • Dean Morton, Professor and Chair of the Department of Oral Health and Rehabilitation at the University of Louisville School of Dentistry;
  • Will Martin, Clinical Associate Professor in the Departments of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and Prosthodontics at the University of Florida's College of Dentistry; and
  • Dr Chatchai Kunavisarut, ITI Co-ordinator and the Assisting Program Director at Mahidol University, Thailand

The panel will examine current understanding about implants in the aesthetic zone, immediate implant placement and loading and management of implant complications. The audience will also have the opportunity to join in the discussion.

New Dentist Forum

IDEM Singapore 2014 will also host the inaugural New Dentist Forum as part of its Scientific Conference program. This forum is geared towards new dentists of up to 7 years post-graduation and final year dental students from any country, with the content and meeting format specifically geared towards their needs.

Hygienists and Therapists

Other firsts for 2014 include the new Dental Hygienist and Dental Therapists Forum, which will see focused conference streams with topics customized for this specialized group.
