Marina Bay Sands in Singapore hosts Asia conference for digital dentistry
With its first Singapore edition taking place this weekend, the Center for Advanced Professional Practices (CAPP) in Dubai is expanding its concept of a specialty congress for digital dentistry to Asia. Over 400 dental professionals are expected to attend the event, which will be held at the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Center, and present the latest technologies and trends in digital dentistry, like 3-D imaging and dental CAD/CAM.

To be opened by Singapore’s Chief Dental Officer and former president of the Singapore Dental Association, Prof. Patrick S.K. Tseng, the congress will kick off on Saturday with presentations on hybrid dental materials and the aesthetic limitations of CAD/CAM, among other topics. A highlight will be the one-visit chairside dentistry theatre presentation by internationally acclaimed presenters Dr Michael Dieter and Jörg Vogt from Germany.

According to CAPP Asia’s Business Development Manager Tzvetan Deyanov, the dental technicians’ parallel session, introduced at CAPP’s last congress in May this year, has been included alongside the main programme. It will take place on the second day and will cover various aspects of using digital dentistry in the lab environment, offering attendees contemporary, technology-focused education, he said.

The event has received sponsorships by major market players, including Sirona Dental Systems, Ivoclar Vivadent, AmannGirrbach, Wieland, Easy Shape—Roland, 3M ESPE, Objet, ClearPath and VITA Zahnfabrik, which will give attendees the opportunity to get hands-on with the latest products and treatment solutions in the field.

CAPP has been organising congresses for dental CAD/CAM and computerised dentistry in Dubai since 2006. Its latest event was attended by over 800 dental professionals from 24 countries, according to its figures. The upcoming congress in Singapore is the first time that the company will be holding this kind of event outside the emirate.

“Without a doubt, digital technology is becoming essential for every dental practice and laboratory,” said Managing Director Dr Dobrina Mollova. “The main goal of this conference is to bring a group of high-end dental professionals together to enable them to discuss and learn about these new technologies in detail.”
