On behalf of the German federal dental association (Bundeszahnärztekammer—BZÄK), I would like to invite you to Cologne to the world’s largest dental exhibition, the International Dental Show (IDS). From 12 to 16 March, it offers dentists an outstanding opportunity to experience international trends and innovations in dentistry and dental technology practically at their own front door.
IDS is an industry meeting place, a get-together for dental professionals, and a forum for discussions for the entire dental industry, with guests and exhibitors from around the world. The BZÄK presents itself and its partners to visitors at our own booth every two years in this cosmopolitan and dynamic environment. For the first time, dental assisting students from the BZÄK, Association of the German Dental Industry and Gesellschaft zur Förderung der Dental-Industrie have been directly invited to visit IDS and the BZÄK’s booth. We consider this invitation a chance to contribute to the support of the dental assistants of the future—the positive response of over 1,200 students represents a great success.
Traditionally, we also hold our aid organisations conference during IDS. The conference serves as a forum for ideas and offers dental aid projects a good opportunity for networking and personal discussion. By organising the conference, which is taking place on 15 March, we aim to give this far-reaching social and societal commitment the attention that it needs and deserves.
Drop by the BZÄK booth (Hall 11.2, Booth O050–P059) and take advantage of the opportunity to talk to us, meet experts and gather information. We look forward to welcoming you to our IDS booth, representing tthe BZÄK, Institute of German Dentists, Agency for Quality in Dentistry, Zahnärztliche Mitteilungen dental journal, German Dentists’ Sponsorship for Leprosy- and Distressed Areas, Bundesverband der Zahnmedizinstudierenden in Deutschland, Bundesverband der zahnmedizinischen Alumni in Deutschland, Dentista, Aktion Zahnfreundlich, Verein für Zahnhygiene and Young Dentists Worldwide.
Until then, my sincere regards,
Dr Peter Engel, President of the German federal dental association
