DUBAI, UAE: In the ongoing quest to advance digital dentistry even further, CAPP Events is introducing the Digital Orthodontics Symposium as a premiere on 04 May 2018, supplementary to the 13th CAD/CAM & Digital Dentistry Conference & Exhibition at Madinat Jumeirah Conference Centre, Dubai, UAE on 4th and 5th of May 2018. The event is open to all orthodontists and general practitioners interested in the latest orthodontic progressions in the digital era. The event is a first of its kind and will attract delegates from across Middle East, Africa and Asia coming May.

In the current stage of digitalization across the dental profession, it is of the highest importance for dental professionals to remain up-to-date through continuing dental education. For the year 2018, CAPP has prepared a high-level CME dental calendar full of events featuring cutting edge scientific dental conferences, exhibitions, trainings, diploma’s and seminars tailor made to the high demanding expectations of dental professionals in the region. As each year progresses, the CAD/CAM & Digital Dentistry UAE international dental conference and exhibition continuously strives to surprise and surpass expectations through the introduction of novel events. This year will be no different with the Digital Orthodontic Symposium being rolled out as a supplementary event.

Going Digital in Orthodontics
The event will gather top key opinion leaders with a focus on the latest trends and developments in digital orthodontics. Digital dentistry can assist us in many ways, by assessing space and measuring the amount of crowding in cases, predicting treatment outcomes, assisting patients’ communication but also storing models digitally and treatment planning. With the introduction of 3D Printing in dentistry, the opportunities in orthodontics have expanded from digital impression taking, to developing virtual treatment plans and 3D printing of dental models. The Digital Orthodontics Symposium will illustrate the necessity for orthodontists to look-into and highly consider digitalizing their working ways to save time, money and provide more efficient and effective treatments for the patients. The symposium will end with a much anticipated ‘Digital’ vs. ‘Analog’ debate which is surely to divide opinion within the region’s orthodontic societies. Delegates will have a sneak peek at the latest technologies at the exhibition area where the dental industry will present its latest research, development, equipment and solutions to serve better the dental professionals.
