The inaugural British Dental Conference and Dentistry Show excelled this year as a record breaking number of visitors and exhibitors visited the show over two days! 

This year saw over 9,321 dental professionals gathering at the British Dental Conference and Dentistry Show on Friday 18th and Saturday 19th May (NEC), making it the UK’s largest free to attend, education and trade event for the dental profession.

Visitors gave the free-to-attend, two-day CPD training and education conference and exhibition a resounding thumbs up – as did the 400+ exhibitors, including the trade’s biggest brand names, Dentsply Sirona, The Dental Directory, Oral-B, Colgate, Planmeca, Philips, GSK amongst others, who showcased hundreds of the latest products and services on the exhibition floor which has increased year-on-year for the last eleven years! The aisle and theatres were packed with delegates on both days enjoying plenty of lectures available for every member of the dental practice, plus hands-on education at exhibitor stands.

More than 100% of the 2018 show’s exhibition space is already booked for 2019! If you want to be part of the most exciting show in the profession, which returns to the NEC (hall 5) on May 17th and 18th, 2019 – then click here!

NOTE: Information about how you can obtain CPD certificates will be sent to delegates 3 weeks post show via email.
