Gulf Dentex 2018, will be held in October from 22nd to 24th in ADNEC in Abu Dhabi 

Dubai, UAE, January 29th 2018:  Indian Dental Association (IDA), 2nd largest dental association in the world and Al Fajer Information & Services, the leading UAE-based exhibition and conference organizer held a press conference at Conrad Dubai today (Monday, January 29th 2018) to announce the inaugural edition of Arab International Dental Conference & Exhibition (Gulf Dentex 2018).

Gulf Dentex 2018, will be held in October from 22nd to 24th at Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company (ADNEC). The three day event will witness two days of Scientific Conferences and three days of Exhibition. Showcasing all aspects of the global dental business under one roof, Gulf Dentex 2018 will not only serve as a strategic platform for trade and knowledge sharing, but also offer latest innovations, cutting-edge technology and dentistry techniques to meet the growing demands of the ever-evolving world of dental science in Middle East.

It has been noted that the global dental sector in 2016 was worth US $ 25.45 billion and expected to reach US $ 35.35 billion by 2021. Middle East and Africa is amongst the top high potential dental markets in the world, with fast growing capabilities. In the Middle-East & Africa the dental consumables market was valued at US $1.3 billion for the year 2015 and is poised to reach US $1.44 billion by the end of 2020 while the Global Dental consumables market shall touch US $ 34.5 billion by 2021.

UAE is the world's fastest growing medical tourism hub poised to become the world's top destination with total health expenditure allocation jumping from the current US $ 23 billion to US $ 28 billion by 2021. 

“Dental industry in the Middle East and the UAE in particular is experiencing a surge. While there has always been a consumer appetite for quality dental services, there has been a recent increase in high end treatment seekers which has bought various international healthcare providers and retailers to operate in the region. Backed by this growing demand, Gulf Dentex 2018 aims to bring not just the healthcare providers, but the entire spectrum of oral healthcare under one roof,” said Dr. Ashok Dhoble, Hon' Secretary General, Indian Dental Association, India 

“We are delighted to associate with the Indian Dental Association to mark the inaugural edition of Gulf Dentex 2018. The event will not only offer valuable learning opportunities, but also celebrate the success and ground-breaking initiatives of the UAE dental and healthcare market. The dental profession and the dental industry are vital partners in delivering oral health to populations around the world. Their symbiotic relationship is even more important today as new materials and technology are developed rapidly to accommodate the latest treatment philosophies. At Gulf Dentex, we aim to bring the best in the industry together to share ideas and encouragement,” said Mr. Satish Khanna, General Manager, Al Fajer Information & Services, Dubai.

Gulf Dentex 2018 will host world-leading health practitioners, clinicians, educators and researchers who will present cutting-edge and practical clinical techniques and also introduce new and emerging research, facilities and equipment's in the field of oral health.

Abu Dhabi Convention Bureau, Department of Culture and Tourism, Government of Abu Dhabi is the Destination Partner of Gulf Dentex.

“IDA's efforts are aimed at facilitating exchange of ideas and innovations, and Gulf Dentex 2018 is a reflection of our resolution. While the event will facilitate scientific cases, studies and researches, which will keep the dental fraternity abreast of the new advances and technologies, the scientific sessions will also bring together leading and high calibre experts to highlight approaches to improve the oral care of patients with a special focus on preventive measures,” said Dr. Ashok Dhoble.

“UAE has what it takes to become the preferred destination for oral healthcare, and through Gulf Dentex 2018, our objective is to create increased awareness about the facilities and services offered by the country. We aim to showcase UAE's expertise to not just the local audience, but also to international audiences,” added Dr. Ashok Dhoble.

“In 2020, the global oral care market is estimated to be worth about 39.47 billion U.S. dollars and the oral healthcare spend in the UAE has been increasing over the past few years. As per Abu Dhabi Vision 2030, the emirate aims to provide integrated continuum of care for individuals thereby improving the quality of healthcare services, patient safety and experience; attracting, training and retaining qualified healthcare professionals; ensuring value for money and sustainability of healthcare spending. With the emirate set to become a role model in the healthcare services, it was ideal that Abu Dhabi be chosen as a venue for Gulf Dentex. While this is just the inaugural edition, we are confident that Gulf Dentex will become an annual calendar event,” concluded Satish Khanna.

Gulf Dentex 2018 scientific programme will host over 60 international speakers and 1000 delegates, while the exhibition will feature 250 exhibitors from 25 countries.
