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.”
