The 3D Dental Printing Conference took place on January 31, 2017, at MECC Maastricht, The Netherlands.
The conference was part of a two-day event that included three other conferences and a dedicated exhibition. The conferences brought together over 230 attendees, who gathered to discuss the most disruptive applications of 3D printing in the medical world, and latest developments and applications in the field. They were not purely academic conferences, but innovative events bringing together brilliant minds and discoveries.
At the 3D Dental Printing Conference, speakers from Z3DLAB, University of Perugia, EOS – Electro Optical Systems, UZ Leuven, University of Nottingham, ACTA Amsterdam, Vertex-Dental/ NextDent, HUMS, Lützeler Klümper Rechtsanwälte talked about the topics in focus.
The titles of the presentations included: The dental industry at a tipping point; 3D Printing in Dental with Biocompatible materials; 3D scanning systems; Additive manufacturing of metal dental restorations – ready for production; 3D virtual orthognathic surgery: planning and follow-up; 3D Printed dental implants; Clinical aspects of Rapid Prototyping technologies; Legal issues for 3D Dental Printing.

Fast Facts about 3D Dental Printing
Dentistry is a field which is increasingly experiencing the impact of digitalization. The ongoing digital developments are leading to substantial changes in how dental professionals will carry out their profession in the future.
Scanning, CAD and 3D Printing will take over traditional procedures and will change the workflow between the different parties involved (dentists, surgeons and dental laboratories).
New players will arise and claim their part of the business, a business that is set to grow at steady pace in the coming years. It is estimated the global dental device market will reach $12.7 billion by 2020.
3D printing has already found substantial traction in the dental implant market. But is not just about 3D Printing itself. Also scanning, software, materials, imaging play an essential role, next to acceptance and training.
