Putting innovation into practice
From 9-11 October, BDIA (formerly BDTA) Dental Showcase will once again take over Excel London to stage the most anticipated event in dentistry.
This year’s theme is putting innovation into practice so the focus will be on taking full advantage of this opportunity to inject innovative equipment, products, services and ideas into your practice.
The choice for dentists
With more than 350 stands bringing the latest advances in dentistry to life, providing the best opportunity to watch live demonstrations and have hands-on interaction with clinical and business products before you buy, it’s not difficult to see why many delegates make purchases during their visit. What’s more, there’s the chance to get unbeatable special offers, exclusively for BDIA Dental Showcase delegates.
Nicholas Robson, principal dentist from Eccleshall Dental Practice in Stafford says: ‘The BDIA Dental Showcase is convenient to visit. The number of exhibitors is quite amazing. There are things I’ve never seen or heard about at the show. It’s all encompassing and the scale of it is so impressive. As a dentist, all of my needs are met in one place.’
From all the big names, as well as new starters, this year’s exhibitors will be showcasing all the latest at the forefront of dentistry. Here, we give you a sneak peek of just a few.
Did you know A-dec has been voted best patient chairs by the Dental Townie Choice Awards every year since 2003? Head to stand M03 to see why.
Orascoptic will be demonstrating new magnification options that will challenge the status quo and elevate dentistry. For a personal product demonstration, visit them on stand C02, or call 01733 315203 to book a specific time at the show.
Breakthrough oral health products
The science behind oral health products in the current market is immense. BDIA Dental Showcase is the ideal opportunity to take the time to learn about the new innovations.
How much do you know about Biodentine? Describing it as the first and only dentine substitute in a capsule, Septodont on stand L03 will be ready to answer your questions about its new technology that claims to help the remineralisation of dentine, preserve pulp vitality and promote pulp healing.
Another innovation from Septodont, Racegel is a brand new gel specifically designed to make gingival preparation procedures easier and more comfortable for patients.
Colgate will be on stand J01 to tell you all about its new revolution in fighting caries – Maximising Cavity Protection plus Sugar Acid Neutraliser toothpaste. This new product means that you can now offer your patients ever-greater protection against decay.
Services specifically for you
As well as all the latest products and equipment, BDIA Dental Showcase exposes you to every service you could possibly need in running a successful dental practice.

Research shows 81% of dentists are planning to offer private services. Having already helped hundreds of practices make the transition, Practice Plan is ready to help you plan your future outside of the NHS. Head to stand P07.
New wave ideas
With the dental contract reform, changes to CPD (continuous professional development) and an unfortunate rise in complaints to the GDC (General Dental Council), there’s a lot to keep up with in dentistry at the moment.
The BDIA Dental Showcase complimentary mini lecture programme is ideal to make sure you are up-to-date on the hottest topics in dentistry. Delivered by industry leaders, the ‘mini’ nature of the lectures mean they are around 20 minutes in length so you can attend as many as you like and get all the vital information you need to know.
This year’s topics for the mini lecture programme will be released in advance of the event, so make sure you visit www.dentalshowcase.com regularly to keep in the loop.
Planning a successful day
With more than 350 stands, hundreds of lectures, offers and samples to take advantage of, it’s important you plan to get the most out of your day. The show is suitable for all team members so make sure they all come along, giving you the biggest chance possible to soak it all up. Delegates advise that an effective way to see as much as possible is to divide your team into groups, giving each member a specific task or subject to research.
The BDIA Dental Showcase website (www.dentalshowcase.com) is the ideal tool to plan your trip.
