The future in the present

ShowcaseSee the future of UK dentistry for yourself at this year’s Dental Showcase in Birmingham.

All of us wish we could take a peek into the dental future, to be able to gaze into a crystal ball to see what life will be like in the coming years. Well, this autumn those wishes can come true at Dental Showcase 2017, at the NEC in Birmingham.

As a part of the largest dental show in the UK, Dental Showcase will, for the first time, include a dental surgery of the future on the show floor, featuring a wide range of the latest solutions and products being demonstrated live. Available for the whole dental team to witness, the purpose-built practice will include a reception area, patient information zone and the piece-de-resistance – a fully functioning surgery with arena seating for visitors to experience the latest kit within the setting in which it will be used.

Bigger than ever

A recognised pivot of the annual dental calendar, Showcase will again host thousands of professionals as they discover the very latest dental innovations across an unrivalled selection of exhibitor stands. As always, dental team members will enjoy personalised product demonstrations, be able to snap up unbeatable deals and take part in highly engaging lecture sessions, whilst toping up their CPD, all under one roof.

While the main thrust of the show will focus on the exhibits, the CPD presentations will include keynotes on the future of dentistry, live demonstrations on how to handle medical emergencies, ergonomics, innovations in X-rays, 3D printing, how to make the right purchasing decisions, IRMER and much more. Sessions will be a combination of live demonstrations, interactive lectures, walk-arounds and panel discussions.

Located on the show floor, the Dental Update Theatre will give team members unrivalled access to the latest clinical content and keynote speakers. The programme will bring the most relevant and up-to-date content to attendees – and all for free. The focus will be on providing practical, effectiveness-boosting advice, which visitors can take away and use in their day-to-day professional lives.

All your favourites

Crystal ball gazing aside, the stage is set for three days of best practice advice relevant to all areas of dentistry for dentists, hygienists and therapists, dental nurses, technicians and practice managers, and for students about to qualify, for whom the surgery of the future will become their professional workplace of the present. The surgery will be open for general browsing when not in use for planned lectures. All the equipment within the futuristic set is to be provided by exhibitors at the show, enabling visitors to head to their stands to find out more.

In addition to all the other traditional benefits of attending Showcase, there will be a new feature located on the show floor, which will provide a platform for GDPs to learn from key opinion leaders in implant dentistry, endodontics and orthodontics. The 30-minute seminar sessions will be followed by networking with specialists from each region of the UK.

Witness the future in the present – Dental Showcase 2017 is a must for everyone who needs to be in the know.
