2005–2015: CAPP celebrates ten years of successful continuing dental education

Post a comment by Centre For Advanced Professional Practices

DUBAI, UAE: May 2015 will mark a significant milestone in the history of the Centre for Advanced Professional Practices (CAPP) in Dubai. CAPP will be celebrating its tenth anniversary of successful continuing dental education not only in the United Arab Emirates but also across the Middle East. Through the hard work of its colleagues, sponsors, partners and supporters, CAPP has been able to establish first-class standards for continuing dental education programmes over the past decade. Participants and followers of CAPP programmes have also helped develop professional training according to the needs of the region with their open feedback.

CAPP is an ADA CERP-recognised provider that specialises in continuing medical and dental education programmes (conferences, hands-on courses, workshops and self-instruction programmes). For the past ten years, CAPP has facilitated over 350 continuing education programmes with over 52,000 international participants. With the opening of CAPP Asia in 2012, CAPP’s reach has expanded to the Asia Pacific region and beyond.

In 2012, CAPP joined the global family of 96 publishers by becoming the proud owner of the Dental Tribune Middle East & Africa edition, and has since been delivering six print editions annually to over 20,000 dental professionals in the Middle East and Africa region and has delivered 24 newsletters to more than 41,000 active subscribers. Through its international website, the latest industry news reaches the largest dental community worldwide—an audience of over 650,000 dentists.

CAPP started out in Dubai ten years ago as a centre for professional training. It quickly grew and developed two very important international conferences: the CAD/CAM and Digital Dentistry International Conference and the Dental-Facial Cosmetic International Conference.

Next year, the tenth CAD/CAM and Digital Dentistry International Conference will be celebrated together with the CAPP anniversary. The last decade has been a journey with challenges in keeping pace with the incredibly fast growth of the industry combined with new technologies, particularly in digital dentistry.

Ten years ago, it would have been difficult to imagine the kind of opportunities presently available to change dentistry and improve overall patient care, including diagnostics, planning and treatment, in terms of precision, treatment and healing time, and aesthetics.

What has been accomplished in the past ten years has been significant and CAPP would like to thank all of its business partners, sponsors and supporters for together making CAPP the success it is today. CAPP would especially like to acknowledge all who have worked at and continue to be with the CAPP office and share the challenges and passion. Thanks also go to all of the dentists, dental technicians, dental hygienists and dental assistants who have followed us in the decade of rapid development of the dental industry and dental technology.
