Scottish Dental Show goes global
The Scottish Dental Show 2017 drew delegates from all over the world with dental professionals travelling from as far afield as the Philippines, Indonesia, Pakistan, India, Canada and Chile.
We also had a handful of European delegates, including two each from Germany, Croatia and the Republic of Ireland.
On top of the international audience, we also welcomed nearly 150 delegates from England, Wales and Northern Ireland as well.
The record for the furthest travelled goes to three dentists from Jakarta in Indonesia, a staggering 7,300 miles away from Glasgow. They were closely followed by three dentists and a dental student all from the same family clinic in Cainta, a town just outside Manila in the Philippines.
Drs Simoun, Rachel and Charlene Monique Suguitan, and student Romina Venezia Suguitan, all travelled 6,600 miles to be at the 2017 show. Simoun revealed that this is the second time he has visited the show and, as he had such a great time in 2016, he brought more of his colleagues across for the 2017 show.
Elsewhere we saw a professor from Aga Khan University Hospital in Karachi, Pakistan visit the show as well as an oral and maxillo facial surgeon from RVS Dental College and Hospital, in Coimbatore, India.
They were joined by general dentists from Burlington, Ontario and Yarmouth, Nova Scotia as well as a university dentist from Santiago, Chile in visiting the 2017 event.
The 2018 Scottish Dental Show will take place at Braehead Arena in Glasgow on 27 and 28 April. For more information and for all the latest news, follow @ScottishDental on Twitter and Instagram and don’t forget to like us on Facebook.com/ScottishDental
