Digital Dentistry Event Held For The Second Time in Singapore

SINGAPORE: With digital imaging and dental CAD/CAM, advanced information technology has gained increased significance in dental practice in recent years. While it has become widely established in Western markets by now, most dentists and dental laboratories in Asia are only now starting to incorporate the new technology into their workflow.

Owing to under-penetration in dental offices and increasing interest by dentists in investing in the technology, markets in the region are therefore expected to see dramatic growth by 2016, according to a recent paper by Canadian market intelligence provider Millennium Research Group. In order to facilitate this development and to give professionals in the region access to the latest expertise and developments in the field, the Centre for Advanced Professional Practices (CAPP) Asia is hosting its second CAD/CAM and Digital Dentistry International Conference on 4 and 5 October at the Marina Bay Sands hotel in Singapore.

A spin-off of the successful congress series held by CAPP in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates annually since 2006, the event is organised in collaboration with the Singapore Dental Association (SDA). The first show, held in October 2012, saw over 500 dentists and dental technicians from the region attending the two-day congress. Similar figures are anticipated for this year’s event, with a larger share of professionals from countries outside the city-state expected. Last year, the conference saw participation by professionals from Malaysia, the Philippines and Thailand, among other countries.

According to the organiser, a Dental Tribune International affiliate, the scientific programme includes presentations by international digital dentistry experts on topics ranging from digital impression taking to digital orthodontics and computer-guided implant planning. Presenters include Drs Lutz Ritter, Andreas Bindl and Eduardo Mahn, among other prominent dental clinicians. A parallel session to be held on the second day of the conference will be targeted at dental technicians and discuss the latest solutions, materials and working processes for the digital workflow in dental laboratories.

In addition, leading providers in the field will have their latest solutions and equipment on display. The industry exhibition, staged alongside the scientific sessions, has been sponsored by a number of companies, including Sirona Dental Systems, Ivoclar Vivadent, 3Shape and DeguDent. Specialist companies, such as rapid prototyping specialist Roland DG, have also announced their participation in the showcase event, which will host over 30 companies from around the world. In between sessions, attendees will have the opportunity to interact with the sponsors directly and try out the latest digital gadgets and tools, CAPP Asia said.

Dental professionals interested in attending the event can still register in advance on the event website at www.capp-asia.com or on-site once the event has begun. Discounts are available to members of the SDA, as well as dental auxiliaries and students, according to the organiser. CAPP is an ADA CERP-recognised provider, and the event will give attendees the opportunity to earn up to 14 continuing education credits.
