The third annual Digital Dentistry and Dental Technology conference has been another outstanding success, attracting some 500 delegates to the Novotel Sydney Brighton Beach over two days on June 3 and 4, 2022.
"As the organiser of the event, it was fantastic to see one of the largest dental conferences in Australia play out seamlessly and without a hitch," said Dentevents' Joseph Allbeury. "It was like the pandemic had never happened with an enthusiast audience of close to 500, together with 43 stellar local and international speakers and an array of dental industry representatives all enjoying the event.
"Digital Dentistry and Dental Technology is an intimate affair in a hotel setting and it generates a real buzz. You can feel the energy, both in the sessions and during the breaks.
"With COVID-19 now a part of life in Australia, we of course planned for multiple scenarios that could have occurred due to this but as it happened, every speaker attended, every session was delivered and there were no reports post-event of participants becoming ill. It was a fantastic outcome.
"The feedback on all levels was resoundingly positive and we can see exactly where we need to steer the event for 2023 and beyond in order to attract an even larger audience and continue to be at the cutting edge of dental education."
Digital Dentistry and Dental Technology 2022 presented delegates with a choice of over 90 education sessions - 84 hours of content - in 7 concurrent streams presented by 43 speakers.
Topics covered included 3D printing, intraoral scanning, milling CAD and CAM software, materials, smile design, digital dentures, implantology, CBCT, restorative, aligners, orthodontics and more.
"The success of Digital Dentistry and Dental Technology 2022 is thanks to a lot of help and support from everyone involved," Mr Allbeury said.
"The event simply could not take place without our sponsors - Ivoclar, Innovatio Dental Supplies and Fabdent. Each of these companies presented an education stream packed with outstanding content and delivered by an amazing group of speakers, several of whom made the journey from overseas.
"The talent on show throughout the entire event in all streams was simply outstanding and included some of Australia and the world's most sought after speakers.
"As the organiser, I am always trying to ensure the program is relevant and compelling and nothing says that more than a lecture room that is standing room only with still more delegates bulging out the door. This was certainly the case on a number of occasions throughout the event. So thank you to all the speakers who presented throughout the two days of the event.
"Thank you also goes to the dental industry and the 40 companies that participated. And I would also like to thank the NSW Government who supported the event with a Business Events Grant.
"Thank you to Dani, Angus, Michael and Frank who hosted lecture rooms and thank you to my family who I steal time from every year to organise and run the event.
"And finally, thank you to everyone who attended the event as a delegate, many for the third time. Without you, all our hard work would be for nothing. So we hope to see you again in 2023."
