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.”

Dr Finlay Sutton will be among the outstanding speaker line-up presenting the Aesthetic Dentist Conference at The Dentistry Show 2016. Keen to demonstrate that removable prosthodontics remains a viable treatment option, even with advances in dental implantology, he will be discussing “The 7 Secrets to Successful Removable Prosthodontics”.

 

“I will deliver a very practical and clinically-focused presentation, exploring my seven secrets for the creation of beautiful dentures with optimal function,” he says. “Using a selection of case studies, photos and videos, I will show how I have worked with my on-site dental technician, Rowan Garstang, to produce removable dental prostheses with exceptional function and aesthetics.

 

“For those attending my lecture, you can expect to pick up some practical tips to help you make superb impressions and maximise retention for both partial and complete dentures. You’ll also see how to determine optimal tooth positioning when designing the prosthesis, ensuring that it is always age appropriate.

 

“I love coming to The Dentistry Show and have been to the last three events. There really is something at the show for everyone involved in dentistry and dental technology. It is a brilliant place to learn new dental techniques, see new products and materials and keep up-to-date with the latest technological advances in dentistry, so that we can improve what we provide for our patients. In addition, it is a great opportunity to meet up with friends and colleagues.”

 

Finlay will be speaking alongside an outstanding line-up of nationally and internationally renowned lecturers within the Aesthetic Dentist Conference. Led by Elaine Halley, Chair of the educational programme, confirmed speakers will be Professor Trevor Burke, Didier Dietschi, Florin Cofar, Roberto Spreafico, Louis MacKenzie and Ian Kerr, discussing a wide range of relevant topics from CAD/CAM technologies and the digital workflow to management of complex cases and direct composites.

Additional hands-on workshops and lecture theatres such as the Facial Aesthetic Theatre, EndoLounge, PerioLounge and STO Lounge, will also cater to specific disciplines and be tailored to all members of the team.

Globally renowned speakers will include Didier Dietschi and Louis Mackenzie in the Aesthetic Dentist Theatre, with many more yet to be announced.
 

The Dental Nurses Forum in partnership with the British Association of Dental Nursing (BADN) is sure to prove a highlight of the event for dental nurses with the entire programme designed and presented by the BADN. Leading names will explore a dynamic range of topics, sharing their experience and expertise to help you develop your skills and boost your career progression.
