IDEM 2010 opens in Singapore
SINGAPORE: With a traditional Welcome Ceremony, attended by high-ranking Koelnmesse officials, the Singapore Dental Association and the FDI World Dental Federation, IDEM 2010 opened its doors yesterday to dental professionals from Singapore and the South-East Asian region. The organiser is expecting 6,000 visitors to participate over the next couple of days, which would make it the largest regional dental meeting in Asia this year. The 2008 edition of IDEM saw a record attendance of 6,370 trade visitors from 56 countries.

During his welcome speech, Executive Vice President of Koelnmesse, Oliver P. Kuhrt, told participants that IDEM is owing its success to the growth of dentistry in Singapore and the increasing rate it contributes to the overall health care sector. He said that this year’s IDEM will not only aim at the profession itself but also educate the public about the advantages and limitations of complex treatment options, such as dental implants.

The global dental implant and bone graft market is expected to top US$4.5 billion by 2012 as developments in dental science and technology bring more advanced dental procedures into the general practice, latest industry reports state.

Due to high demand, IDEM will host a Consumer Education Forum on dental implantology on Sunday, 18 April 2010. The event is organised by the Singapore Dental Health Foundation in conjunction with IDEM Singapore. It will be open to the public and share information about the basics of implantology, the risks factors that may affect results and other practical questions surrounding implant-supported treatments.

Dentists will find the latest equipment that local and international manufacturers have to offer on display in the exhibition hall on level 4. An increased display of dental surgical equipment and bone grafting tools that aid dental implant procedures is offered. Digital dentistry specialists will also present 3D imaging systems that help to streamline communication between dentists and laboratories and thus improve treatment outcomes.

According to the organiser, over 350 companies are participating in this year’s IDEM. Amongst others, there are new participations from countries like Slovenia and the Republic of Colombia.
