Digital dentistry conference draws over 500 to Singapore
Attendance figures for the first CAD/CAM & Computerized Dentistry International Conference in the Asia-Pacific region have exceeded original expectations, the Center for Advanced Professional Practices (CAPP) has announced. According to its figures, more than 520 dental professionals took part in the event, which was sponsored by major market players and saw 14 lecturers presenting in fields like computer-guided surgery and 3-D dental imaging.

Plans for a follow-up conference in the city-state are already being discussed and will be announced in the coming weeks, CAPP officials recently told Dental Tribune ONLINE. The event will be held in autumn next year after the organisation’s eighth Dubai congress scheduled for May 2013.

CAPP has been organising congresses for dental CAD/CAM and computerised dentistry in the emirate since 2006. As a spin-off of its successful annual series there, a conference was organised for Asian dentists for the first time this year. Besides a three-day scientific programme, it offered a theatre presentation on chairside CAD/CAM-fabricated restorations, as well as a parallel session that aimed to provide dental technicians in the region with an overview of the latest digital technology and guidelines for its use in dental labs. In addition, renowned orthodontist Dr Khaled Abouseada held a workshop on using ClearPath, a US-developed invisible aligner orthodontic therapy manufactured and distributed by ClearPath Orthodontics in Saudi Arabia, with dental CAD/CAM.
