As digitized healthcare becomes more prevalent in our everyday lives, dentistry must adapt to meet the demands and expectations which place patients at the centre of treatment planning. Over the past decade we have seen a digital transformation like no other. From riding trends such as artificial intelligence, augmented reality, 3D printing, home health technology, biotechnology, health sensors and trackers to personalized medicine and genomics.
It is truly remarkable how far healthcare has come and dentistry is no exception. Just as is the case in other medical specialties, disruptive innovations will have a huge impact on how dentistry will be practiced and how patients will take care of themselves in the future. Take oral health as an example – everyone knows how crucial good oral care is and how strongly it is connected to overall health. Now thanks to new technology, diagnoses can be made with more confidence and greater clarity, making conservative treatments easier to perform and putting prevention at heart of dentistry.
With healthcare moving at such a stratospheric rate the future of dentistry offers a unique opportunity for cooperation between humans and technology. These advances are elevating the precision and efficiency of treatment to unprecedented levels, and providing truly outstanding patient outcomes, faster than ever thought possible.
That is why the Digital Symposium is back again in 2018! We’re thinking big, thinking holistically and thinking differently.
This event aims to further the learning process for dental professionals, driving innovative solutions in terms of how we predict, diagnose, manage, treat and prevent illness. Taking part in the Digital Symposium will enable you to see emerging technologies and understand how they will impact the care you deliver. Featuring the finest group of educational and motivational speakers ever assembled at a digital dentistry conference in the UK, everyone who attends the Digital Symposium will walk away with a vision and a plan for a better future, and that’s exactly what we are setting out to achieve.
Welcome to the fourth industrial revolution!
There are many applications of digital technology available in the dental workplace. This extends from the use of computers for record keeping and appointment planning, to the use of CADCAM technology to plan and manufacture dental restorative solutions. As intra-oral scanners and other digital applications become more widely accessible, the challenge is how best to incorporate this into the workflow for the technology to be effective in improving outcomes for the dental team and for the patient.

Making the decision to convert your practice to digital can seem like a daunting process, particularly in relation to the financial investment needed to take your practice to the next level. Dr Adam Nulty fully understands the commitment involved in making those initial steps and, speaking from experience and best practice, will deliver a practical workshop on the business benefits in going Digital. (more…)
Digital dentistry enables provision of single visit solutions for patients in almost every clinical situation, with minimal post procedure pain and inflammation.
This presentation will provide an overview of Waterlase laser tissue interaction and how, in combination with CEREC, the two technologies provide a satisfying treatment workflow and profitable team. Co-integration into a fully digital workflow is great for treatment outcomes and maximises efficient use of time. (more…)
The cutting-edge SAGITTAL FIRST ™ Philosophy is used to correct Class II or Class III malocclusion at the beginning of treatment, when patients are most compliant. This protocol provides greater efficiencies, shorter treatment times, and stable long-term results. Dr. Paschal will share ground-breaking clinical evidence which will challenge your views on the same-day patient starts related to the traditional orthodontic workflow. (more…)
To many of us the explosion of technology in digital dentistry leaves us breathless and terrified with the options available to us and the paths that we could or should take.
In an attempt to simplify some of these Colin Campbell and Mark Melbourne from The Campbell Clinic in Nottingham will provide a break out session of ‘bar stool’ coaching to discuss Sirona and 3 Shape digital pathways for dental practitioners and team members to learn and make sensible decisions for their routes ahead. (more…)
In this 1-hour hands-on session, delegates will be able to understand the benefits to patient, clinician and laboratory in using a high density composite CADCAM block, see a range of suitable tooth preparations and cement a CRIOS crown. Limited to 20 delegates.
Setting and tracking goals with Guy Meyers
Understanding performance progress is important at any stage in your business journey; as it presents an opportunity to tweak the processes that affect results and make changes before it’s too late. The theory of continuous improvement is not a new concept in business, but for dentists it represents a different way of thinking about how a practice operates. (more…)
Thanks to digital technologies, complete dentures can be quickly produced and predicted in only a few steps - CADCAM makes this possible. A new process allows you to fabricate a prosthesis from two different material discs in your dental laboratory and you and your patients will be impressed with the aesthetics: a “Digital Denture”. (more…)
In this session you will cover the following topics.
Until very recently the esthetic result of the frontal region lay solely on the lab technician. To give a restoration its natural shape is a feat not easily achieved even by even the most skilled of technicians, due to the limitations set by the creative part of the human brain. This part of the brain allows us to create one (99% of people), maximum two (remaining 1%) natural algorithm of teeth which each dentist and technician uses on all of his patients. (more…)
Within the field of prosthetic rehabilitations, we have for many years used codiﬁed and widely described protocols in literature, with results that have met our expectations and well above those of our patients. It is true that the advent of new technologies has enabled the dental team to use new materials and new equipment to facilitate the production, adaptation and accuracy of the prosthetic rehabilitation that has, up to now, been diﬃcult to obtain. (more…)
Everything in our daily life is becoming digital. Digital means objective, reproducible, repeatable, effective, precise. Can we talk about the Digital Aesthetics? If we really do understand the main points of an aesthetic smile, the basic characteristics are able to be digitised. Final micro-aesthetics, usually visible only by professionals are still a matter of a manual work. (more…)
Dr. Bertalan Mesko is the Medical Futurist. A geek physician with a PhD in genomics and Amazon Top 100 author, he envisions the impact of digital health technologies on the future of healthcare, and helps patients, doctors, government regulators and companies make it a reality.
