Leading event for future of digital dentistry

DARMSTADT, Germany: The worldwide exocad community is looking forward to the rescheduled exocad Insights 2020, set to take place on 21 and 22 September and now reimagined as a global hybrid event owing to the current health situation. Several hundred participants are expected to attend the event in person in the darmstadtium science and congress centre in the city of Darmstadt. Tickets for this part of the event have been sold out; however, exocad expects more than 1,500 participants online, who will be able to experience the event via live streaming in their laboratories, practices and homes.

Insights 2020 has the theme “A decade of digital innovation” and is dedicated to the tenth anniversary of exocad. Participants can expect a particularly exciting programme, having several highlights, including the world premiere of the new software releases, DentalCAD Galway and exoplan Galway. Participants can learn about brand-new features and experience a live patient case demonstrating the benefits of seamless digital workflow on the exocad open architecture software platform. Approximately 40 partner companies attending Insights 2020 will be presenting their digital innovations to the global trade public at this event, and some will premiere new product innovations in the areas of scanners, mills, 3D printers and materials.

“Despite these challenging times, it is important to us to bring the worldwide exocad community together for our tenth anniversary. This is why we are planning Insights 2020 as a global leading event for digital technologies in laboratories and practices,” explained Tillmann Steinbrecher, exocad CEO. He added: “Online and on-site, around 2,000 dental technicians and dentists from all over the world will learn about the latest developments for the future of digital dentistry.”

Owing to the dramatic development of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, exocad postponed the Insights event (originally planned for March) to 21 and 22 September. The company attaches great importance to the health of the participants, speakers, employees and teams of the partner companies in the darmstadtium, and stringent hygiene measures will be taken to ensure everyone feels safe. All participants present in Darmstadt and online will have access to Insights 2020 as a video stream for up to four weeks after the event.

Knowledge, inspiration and world premieres

On the first day, attendees will experience the world premiere of the next generation of CAD functionality when exocad showcases two new software versions, DentalCAD Galway and exoplan Galway.

Interdisciplinary teamwork is becoming more and more intuitive and time effective thanks to the possibilities of exocad’s open software solutions. Treatment success can be predicted and, for an increasing number of indications, can even be realised in a single day. This will be demonstrated by Uli Hauschild (Italy) and Dr Michael Berthold (Germany) in a specific patient case: beginning with Smile Creator, via implant planning and guided implant placement with exoplan, to placement of the temporary prostheses. The live transmission of the surgical procedure from a clinic in Germany will be particularly exciting.

Waldo Zarco Nosti (Spain) will be presenting another highlight: his first patient cases with the new DentalCAD Galway release. Dr Michael Scherer (US) will discuss the role of exocad in his combined clinical and laboratory dental practice and how the software can be used in daily clinical practice. Speakers will lead participants into the exciting future of digital dentistry and show the almost infinite possibilities available, clearly demonstrating that those who further digitise their workflows will be able to shape the future.

Finally, business psychologist Dr Carl Naughton (Germany) will provide effective insights for managing change as he takes the audience on an interactive journey to individual brain power.

At forefront of CAD/CAM innovation

On Tuesday morning, the partner company sessions will be followed by the latest digital trends in hardware and materials that allow for the predictable and efficient implementation of patient-oriented treatment concepts. In the afternoon, the exocad team of software experts will present DentalCAD, exoplan and ChairsideCAD using exciting patient cases, allowing users to experience the unsurpassed flexibility and design freedom of exocad software. Dentists will find numerous reasons for single-visit dentistry on an open software platform in the parallel clinical session with Dr Gulshan Murgai (UK).

The conference language is English. Simultaneous interpretation into German, Spanish, Italian and Russian will be provided online and on-site at the darmstadtium.

More than 40 partner companies will present their latest products for digital dentistry on-site and online: Align, Amann Girrbach, Degree of Freedom, Medit, Shining 3D, Dental Direkt, GC, NextDent, Schütz Dental, VITA Zahnfabrik, Aidite, ARUM Dentistry, Asiga, BEGO, CAD 4D, CADstar, CAMLOG, Carbon, Carestream, CIMsystem, Denseo, Dentsply Sirona, DESS, DGSHAPE, Dynamic Abutment, Elos Medtech, EnvisionTEC, Formlabs, imes-icore, INFINIDENT Solutions, nt-trading, Open Tech 3D, Planmeca, Runyes, Ruthinium, Smartoptics, Sinergia, Up3d, vhf, VOCO, XTCERA, zebris, Zfx and more.
