The International Dental Exhibition and Meeting (IDEM) Singapore 2016 returns for its 9th edition in April under the theme, "Striving for Clinical Excellence". The conference will be held from April 8th to 10th at the SUNTEC Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre.
IDEM Singapore 2016 is a key driver for clinical excellence and adoption of innovation in oral health and dental care throughout Asia-Pacific.
With technology developing at such a rapid rate, it's imperative that all dental professionals update their knowledge and skills in order to provide the safest and most effective care for the public. Modern dentistry is also undoubtedly dependent on advanced technologies in ensuring that dental care and oral health is easily accessible to consumers. As a result, dental professionals need to constantly upgrade, update and familiarise themselves with the technological advances in dental care. In recent years, dental professionals in the Asia-Pacific region have been early adopters of emerging technologies in their laboratories, dental practices and dental teaching. According to iData Research, the investment by the Asia Pacific market in digital dentistry products is valued at over US$10 billion.
To enable dental professionals to take advantage of the critical benefits of new digital technologies, IDEM Singapore 2016 has expanded its broad offering of education to include The Digital Dentistry Forum. The theme for the new forum is "A Primer in Digital Dentistry – Practice and Laboratory Development for Clinical Excellence".
This introductory full day forum, to
be held on the 10th of April, is open to dentists and dental technicians and its goal is to help dentists and dental technicians to navigate their way to the adoption of digital dentistry through understanding the process of change and the development of new skills necessary to harness the tremendous benefits of areas such as CAD/CAM, 3D printing and CBCT scans.
The forum will feature internationally-recognised experts in private practice and dental laboratories, who will be addressing, not just the benefits of digital technologies, but how to adopt them and transition to the delivery of dental care in the digital world. Dr Jonathan Ferencz, world-leading prosthodontist from York University College of Dentistry, and Mr Lee Culp, CDT, Chief Technology Officer for MicroDental, Inc., and other renowned experts and authors will lead the forum.
To further cement its aim in striving for clinical excellence and highlighting the importance of innovative technologies, IDEM Singapore 2016 will also provide visitors with the opportunity to view the latest dental technologies and innovative products during the exhibition. Visitors can expect 550 exhibitors and, among them, more than 20% of current exhibitors are focused in the field of digital dentistry, including 3Shape, Dentsply Implants, Planmeca, Sirona and many others.
"IDEM Singapore 2016 features the truly top-class clinicians from all corners of the globe who will share the latest skills and techniques in striving for clinical excellence," said IDEM Singapore 2016 Scientific Programme Director, Dr David Alexander. "With the mix of lectures, workshops, forums and roundtable discussions, IDEM Singapore provides a great opportunity for all dental professionals to interact with one another, gather new knowledge and information needed to make informed decisions about best practices and delivery of the finest patient care.
"IDEM Singapore has a proven track record of providing some of the finest learning opportunities in Asia-Pacific Dentistry. The 2016 conference is no exception and presents an unsurpassed opportunity to gain knowledge and learn new skills from the world's finest clinicians."
