Among the highlights of the event are presentations from some of the most well-respected figures in dentistry. Each speaker brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in their respective fields, ensuring attendees leave with actionable insights and deeper understanding.

In an era defined by rapid innovation and the quest for excellence, the British Dental Conference & Dentistry Show (BDCDS) sits as a key event for dental professionals.  

Scheduled for 17 and 18 May at the NEC in Birmingham, this conference and exhibition aims to offer new perspectives and insights into the evolving landscape of the dental profession in the UK. 

At the heart of this is the headline session by Steven Bartlett, a figure synonymous with groundbreaking entrepreneurial success and inspirational leadership. 

As the youngest dragon in BBC’s 'Dragon's Den', Bartlett brings to the BDCDS a wealth of experience in leveraging digital platforms for business growth, particularly within the health and wellness sector.  

Bartlett will be in conversation with Dr Nilesh Parmar on the future of dentistry, team culture, the psychological aspects of running a practice and much more. His experience with overcoming challenges and diversifying interests will undoubtedly offer critical insights for dentists at all career stages.


Beyond the headline

While Bartlett's session is a highlight, the BDCDS offers a wide variety of opportunities for learning and connection.  

For instance, the exhibition will showcase the latest dental equipment, technologies, and products, providing hands-on experience that is crucial for understanding the potential impact of new tools on patient outcomes and practice efficiency.  

With stands for the likes of A-dec, Agilio, Bridge2Aid, DD, Dental Defence Union, EMS, Kent Oral Care, Listerine, Mouth Cancer Foundation, NHS Dental Services, Straumann Group and UCL Eastman Dental Institute to name just a select few out of 400+ exhibitors, the exhibition is set to dazzle attendees with innovations that promise to enhance the quality of dental care. 

Then there are the networking opportunities, with the BDCDS providing a unique platform for dental professionals to renew old friendships and forge new alliances, offering personal encounters that foster trust, rapport and collaborative relationships. This aspect of the event highlights the intrinsic value of face-to-face interactions in building a vibrant professional community. 

What’s more, in collaboration with key organisations such as the British Dental Association (BDA), the BDCDS enriches its programme with a range of clinical and practical insights. This partnership ensures that the content is not only relevant but also reflective of the current challenges and opportunities within dentistry, making it a must-attend event for professionals seeking to stay at the forefront of dental practice. 


The dual dynamics of BDCDS and DTS

While the BDCDS 2024 sets the stage for an unparalleled exploration of dental excellence, the concurrent Dental Technology Showcase (DTS) brings an additional layer of depth to this year's event. Here, the focus shifts to the critical aspect of leadership within dental laboratories, a domain where the fusion of technical skill and visionary leadership determines both present success and future growth. 

With DTS positioned as the UK's only event dedicated to dental laboratories and technicians, it offers a unique opportunity for networking, learning, and discovery. Part of that includes exhibitors offering a range of educational sessions right at their stands, providing a hands-on experience with the newest products and the opportunity to gain invaluable insights directly from the experts. 

With all that in mind, DTS offers an unrivalled opportunity to invest in professional growth by connecting with innovative suppliers, gaining insights from speakers with accomplished industry backgrounds, and walking away with a competitive edge. 


The gateway to future dentistry

With their comprehensive programmes and array of esteemed speakers, the BDCDS and DTS stand as beacons for learning, growth, and connection within the dental community. 

Whether you're seeking to expand your clinical knowledge, explore the latest in dental technology, or simply connect with peers and mentors, these events promise an enriching and transformative experience for every attendee.
