Post a comment by Dental Tribune International

DUBAI, UAE: After 20 previous successful editions, the next UAE International Dental Conference and Arab Dental Exhibition (AEEDC Dubai) returns this week to the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre. Being held from 7 to 9 February, the event will offer pre-conference courses, a diverse scientific programme and an industry exhibition that will showcase state-of-the-art dental technology and products.

Thousands of high-calibre dental professionals and oral health industry specialists will be at this year’s conference to inform themselves about the latest advances in all fields of dentistry. The organiser expects over 48,000 visitors and participants from 130 countries to attend the 21st edition. Over 150 prominent speakers from the region and around the globe will be sharing their expertise in over 170 lectures. According to the organiser, the 2017 programme covers paediatric dentistry, oral and maxillofacial surgery, implantology, laser and microscopic dentistry, dental practice growth and dental emergencies, among other topics. The exhibition area will host over 600 dealers and manufacturers in an astounding area of 74,000 m2.

With the Dubai World Dental Meeting, held from 4 to 6 February, the number of pre-conference courses were nothing short of impressive this year. In these special sessions, ranging from in-depth hands-on workshops to the presentation of real-world case studies, led by experts in their respective fields, participants from all over the world were able to gain and exchange ideas on how to expand their business and deliver better patient outcomes..

And it did not stop there, as the AEEDC Dubai World Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Conference, which ran on 5 and 6 February, focused on prevailing topics in the field. Furthermore, the AEEDC Dubai World Orthodontic Conference, also held on 5 and 6 February, addressed trending topics in orthodontics.

As part of the AEEDC Dubai 2017 main conference programme, a dedicated symposium on digital dentistry, organised in collaboration with the Digital Dentistry Society, will be held on the first and second days of the conference. Through this event, both the society and AEEDC aim to create better opportunities for the exchange of knowledge, research and education, as well as to increase interaction and networking among the global dental community.

In addition, Stomatologie Aujourd’hui [dentistry today] will run a half-day programme for three days, offering dedicated dental sessions in French.

Another collaboration starts this year with the International Federation of Dental Hygienists, which has organised a symposium on optimising prevention, oral health and the economics of employing a dental hygienist in every dental clinic.

Finally, the AEEDC Student Competition provides a unique opportunity for all final-year dental students to interact actively with their fellow students from ten leading dental colleges and universities across the region. In a live competition, students will have to answer questions on various dental subjects, including infection control, four-handed dentistry, implantology and oral surgery.

Past editions have always offered great opportunity for learning and networking. The meeting is a place where professional relationships are born and business is conducted. The second largest dental event in the world and the first in the Middle Eastern region, AEEDC Dubai has been held annually since the mid-1990s. It is organised in strategic partnership with the UAE Ministry of Interior Naturalization and Residency Administration and has support from the Dubai Health Authority, Global Scientific Dental Alliance, Arab Dental Federation, Gulf Health Council for Cooperation Council States, Oral Health Committee of the Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf, Riyadh Colleges of Dentistry and Pharmacy, Arab Academy for Continuing Dental Education and International Association for Orthodontics.
