2019 GNYDM highlights latest dental products and technologies
NEW YORK, U.S.: Held from Nov. 29 to Dec. 4 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, the 2019 Greater New York Dental Meeting (GNYDM) demonstrated once again why it is the country’s largest and most anticipated dental congress by offering an inviting mix of educational sessions, hands-on workshops, product launches and more.
The 95th iteration of the free-to-attend annual event attracted more than 52,000 attendees from all parts of the dental industry. A large number of these visitors were international. The German Pavilion featured a variety of companies displaying their wares under a “made in Germany” banner, while another area of the convention center showcased a broad range of Korean companies such as META BIOMED and DIGIRAY.
More than 300 educational courses and events were conducted over the course of the 2019 GNYDM, covering topics as diverse as adhesive dentistry, guided implant surgery and early detection of oral cancer. A number of these courses were run entirely in Spanish, an inclusive choice that considered the approximately 41 million native Spanish speakers who currently reside in the United States.
Live dentistry sessions were held each day in the convention center and proved to be a hit with audiences. Among these sessions were “Executing Accurate Aesthetic Dentistry,” in which Dr. Michael Apa discussed techniques for preparation, temporization and the integration of digital technology, and “Modern Materials in a Digital Era,” a session presented by Dr. Justin Chi and sponsored by Glidewell Dental.
The Utah-based startup company Weave was present at the 2019 GNYDM to publicly debut Weave Payments, a full-scale payment processing platform for small and medium-sized businesses, and 3DISC launched the latest version of the Heron IOS, its solution for intraoral scanning.
The 2020 GNYDM will be held once again at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center from Nov. 27 to Dec. 4, 2020.
