Listening, talking and networking:- Dentistry Show 2017

Listening, talking and networking:- Dentistry Show 2017

We enjoyed an extremely busy couple of days at the Dentistry Show on Friday and Saturday in Birmingham. This year we didn’t have a stand, so we did a lot of walking, talking and listening of course…...

A few initial thoughts and products that caught the eye:-

The Full Picture

In a room of a few thousand people, it always intrigues me the different impressions people get from the show. “Fantastic show”, “our stand has been so busy” “selling loads of gear” and then you move about 3 feet to the next stand and the reaction is totally different “waste of time”, “not as busy as last year” “this part of the room isn’t getting any footfall” so when stepping back and looking at the full picture, I reckon it is somewhere in the middle. The show was certainly busy but it is not for everyone.

Takeaway - it is not always about following the crowd. This kind of show works for some companies but not all.

Closer Still

Closer Still Media, have built an amazing business, which is demonstrated by the fact that the show attracts a huge number of exhibitors, speakers and visitors. As you will know from previous blogs, GDPUK have not always had the best experience at the Dentistry Show but we must say that it has a great spirit, atmosphere and 2 days seems a perfect amount of time.

Well done to all the Dentistry Show team and the wider Closer Still Media team which is now over 200 people strong. They obviously understand the formula to produce extremely successful events.

Internet of Things

Last year we reported on Oral-B’s move into connected toothbrushes and now Philips have followed with the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Smart which not only is incredibly smart with its matt black handle, black brush head and charge in glass technology, it also uses connected technology to inspire and motivate patients to take better care of their oral health. I believe it will be available to consumers in the next few months. Great to see dentistry leading the way in connected devices and improving oral-health at the same time.

Good to Great

“Good to Great” is a journey to greater business prosperity for dentists, which has been underpinned in the last 12 months by the introduction of SoE’s Customer Success Programme. (Software of Excellence). The Good to Great Challenge encourages dentists to think more clearly about how they can optimise their performance and maximise revenue and provides a vehicle by which dentists can track and follow the progress of likeminded dental practices. More information available here - 

Will be interesting to see how many practices get involved in this challenge and what affect it has on their practice over the 12 months.


The show is great for networking which is demonstrated by the thousands of people attending and the huge queues at the Starbucks just outside hall 5! I really enjoyed this element of the show, fantastic to catch up with so many people from all areas of the profession.

A few other mentions and thoughts

  • The Simply Health juice drinks were delicious and perfect after a few beers on the Friday evening. I am sure anyone who attended the Dental Awards or the Dental Circle party also found those drinks refreshing :)
  • Prem at Quick Straight Teeth certainly caught the eye but I know this has been covered elsewhere on social media :)
  • The dental industry certainly seemed positive overall, digital is growing. Innovation isn't always the quickest in dentistry compared to other sectors but some of the options and resources available to a dentist just starting their dental practice journey are endless.
  • The 3M intraoral mobile tablet scanner is extremely clever and could be excellent for interaction with your patient. Info here.

Thanks for reading and hopefully see you at the BDA Conference in a couple of weeks. Get in touch if you would like to meet up or need some advice on the best restaurants in Manchester.

Elaine Halley, Chair of the Aesthetic Dentist Conference - The Dentistry Show 2016

The Dentistry Show

For dental professionals of all experience levels, interests and career aspirations, The Dentistry Show facilitates the development of clinical and business skills within a dynamic and fun environment. The 2016 event will once again bring you an array of lectures, hands-on workshops and on-stand learning throughout the trade floor, ensuring diverse learning opportunities for the whole team.

Among the highlights of the next show will be the Aesthetic Dentist Conference, Chaired by Dr Elaine Halley. Here, she gives a taste of what delegates can expect from the highly anticipated lecture programme:

“I’m very excited to present this great line-up of speakers who’ll be exploring a broad variety of subjects. We will show how the digital age is now well within the realms of the GDP who has an interest in aesthetic dentistry. It doesn’t matter how much previous experience delegates have with modern digital technologies, or indeed whether they have access to advanced CAD/CAM equipment in their practice – we will demonstrate how anyone can start to integrate the digital workflow.

“Our outstanding speakers will include Florin Cofar visiting from Romania, who will be discussing CAD/CAM and digital smile design and how it can be used in general practice. Roberto Spreafico will take this further by looking at CAD/CAM relating to treatment of the posterior teeth. In my own lecture, I will consider how we can capture effective digital images and utilise them for enhanced treatment planning.

“In contrast, Professor Trevor Burke will be speaking about the management of more complex cases, focusing on the treatment planning stages and offering practical hints and tips to help improve this stage of treatment. Ian Kerr, known for his work with resin-bonded composites, will also explore the advanced restorative dentistry that can be aided with CAD/CAM solutions. Renowned speakers Didier Dietschi, Finlay Sutton and Louis MacKenzie will complete the line-up, ensuring the entire topic spectrum is covered.”

Alongside the Aesthetic Dentist Conference, The Dentistry Show 2016 will host a myriad of additional features covering all fields of dentistry including the GDP Theatre, EndoLounge, PerioLounge, CORE CPD Theatre and STO Lounge. What’s more, the trade floor is expected to stage more than 400 leading dental manufacturers and suppliers, each displaying cutting-edge innovations and many will provide on-stand learning for those interested in honing their knowledge of products and treatment concepts.

“The benefit of The Dentistry Show comes from the amount of thought and effort that goes into putting the programme together, ensuring each conference stream is relevant for those within the appropriate field,” concludes Elaine. “Delegates can trust that the speaker line-ups and topics are always different year on year, enabling them to access a wide spectrum of educational opportunities.

“The event is also very well supported by the trade, so delegates can learn about materials and equipment and then speak to the manufacturers directly. This combination of education and access to the trade is fantastic.”

Start planning now for BDIA Dental Showcase

Start planning now for BDIA Dental Showcase

It’s not long now until BDIA Dental Showcase, which this year will be held on 22-24 October at the NEC in Birmingham - and with so much happening, it might be wise to start planning your visit now.

As the UK’s premier and best attended dental industry event, there’s always something for every member of the team.  But this year there’s even more to see and do.

There are around 350 exhibitors from every aspect of the practice and business of dentistry, demonstrating the latest innovations in products and services.  This hands-on access lets you try before you buy, and with such a great range of exclusive show offers, it’s no wonder that 73% of visitors made purchases during, or as a direct result of attending last year’s event. 

Among the many exciting new innovations being launched will be CerezenTM (Stand K5).  This revolutionary device is a new way to treat temporomandibular joint disorders and related symptoms.  As well as on-stand demonstrations of the product, Dr Daniel Saund will be presenting a lecture on its benefits and supporting evidence as part of the mini lecture programme.

Cerezen UK Country Manager, Saife Aziz, commented, “There was really only one place for us to carry out the full launch of CerezenTM.  BDIA Dental Showcase is such an important event that it is the perfect opportunity to share this exciting product with the dental profession.”

For those looking to introduce cutting-edge technology to their practice, Carestream Dental (Stand G15) will be presenting the latest digital imaging products and practice management software.  The CS 8100 3D is just one example of the innovation on offer, bringing the power of 3D imaging with outstanding clarity and simple image capture within the reach of every general dental practice.

The latest innovations from DMG will be on display at Stand F210.  These include the easy-to-place, latex-free DMG MiniDam, a handy silicone shield for isolation of proximal areas that helps achieve dry conditions whilst protecting the gingiva.  

As well as new products, a comprehensive programme of CPD mini lectures and presentations by industry experts means you can catch up on the latest developments in a diverse range of topics from technology and techniques through to finance and growth strategies.  This year sees the launch of The Dairy Council sponsored Dietary Zone.  This special section looks at the link between diet and oral health and how members of the dental team can engage patients in discussions about appropriate nutrition.

The Dairy Council’s Director of Nutrition, Dr Anne Mullen, said about this innovative collaboration, “Nutrition and dental health are intrinsically linked. We are really looking forward to sharing ideas between the disciplines with the hope of cross-pollinating ideas for practice.  Our publications on nutrition and health are extremely popular among dental professionals, and the BDIA Dental Showcase will allow us to interact directly with that user base”.

BDIA Dental Showcase is also delighted to be partnering with the Association of Dental Implantology (ADI) which will be presenting a range of lectures and demonstrations at the Implant Zone (Stand N215).  Members of the team will also be on hand to answer any questions you may have.

Tony Reed, Executive Director at the BDIA comments, “Showcase provides the ideal opportunity to see what’s new and to try it out.  There are plenty of exciting innovations at this year’s show and I hope that every team member gets a chance to find out for themselves just how valuable a day spent at Showcase can be.”
