Theme: Modern Dentistry with Gentle Care
After the success of Dental Marketing 2019 in Toronto we are inviting participants across the globe to attend 40th International Conference on Dentistry & Dental Marketing (Dental Marketing 2022) during December 08-09, 2022 in Montreal, Canada. The main theme of the conference is ‘Modern Dentistry with Gentle Care’ The relative novel nature of the conference and its relevance to the current dental market makes this summit an event to look forward for all the individuals of the Dental Community
Dental Marketing 2022 will look to improve and build on the steeping stones of its predecessor and create a platform for discussion on dental practice management and marketing besides conventional dentistry
The nature of the conference is crucial to its purpose as dentists who attend the conference can not only contribute and share their research but also learn about how marketing influences their practices and implement and modernize
Dental Marketing is the integration of marketing strategies in the field of dentistry to help Dental Professionals harness the full potential of their practice. It involves the use of tools and techniques of marketing to achieve a certain degree of publicity and broaden the reach of the practice and the practitioner. The conference is a rare opportunity for all individuals of the dental community to upgrade their know-how of the latest marketing strategies.
Track 1 : Public Health Dentistry
The essence of public health dentistry lies in the fact that the area focuses on a community or population as a whole and not individual patients. Public health dentists work towards betterment of overall oral and dental health of their communities. They educate patients to adapt to practices that might help improve their general dental health in the long run. Public health dentistry also concentrates on patient education, increased awareness of government programs and efforts towards community dental health and wellness.

Track 6. Endodontic
Endodontic is the dental specialty that is concerned with the overall health of the dental pulp and the tissues surrounding the teeth. The ADA defines Endodontic as the “study and practice encompass the basic and clinical sciences including biology of the normal pulp, the etiology, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of diseases and injuries of the pulp and associated per radicular conditions.” The evolution of Endodontic in the last decade has significantly contributed to the recent increase in the quality of dental treatment.
Track 7. Orthodontics
Derived from the Greek words ‘Orthos” meaning straight and “odont” meaning tooth, Orthodontics is a recognized dental specialty that primarily aims to help patients obtain optimal occlusion. The area of orthodontic treatment includes correcting crooked or misaligned teeth to provide the patients aesthetically pleasing smiles. The procedures generally use the help of metal wires inserted into orthodontic brackets and functional appliances often used to correct jaw growth.

Track 10. Digital Dentistry
Digital dentistry might be characterized in an expansive extension as any dental innovation or gadget that consolidates advanced or PC controlled parts as opposed to that of mechanical or electrical alone. This wide definition can extend from the most regularly considered regions of advanced dentistry — CAD/CAM (PC helped outline/PC supported assembling) — to those that may not be perceived, for example, PC controlled conveyance of nitrous oxide. Digital Dentistry includes work in a variety of areas including; CAD/CAM and intraoral imaging — both laboratory- and clinician-controlled; Caries diagnosis; Computer-aided implant dentistry — including design and fabrication of surgical guides; Digital radiography — intraoral and extra oral, including cone beam computed tomography (CBCT); Electric and surgical/implant hand pieces; Lasers; Occlusion and TMJ analysis and diagnosis; Photography — extra oral and intraoral; Practice and patient record management — including digital patient education and Shade matching.

Track 11. Sedation Dentistry
Sedation dentistry utilizes medication to help patients relax during dental procedures. It's sometimes referred to as "sleep dentistry,” Patients are usually awake with the exception of those who are under general anesthesia. The degree of sedation applied varies significantly from case to case ranging from minimal sedation where patients are awake but relaxed to general anesthesia where patients are completely unconscious. This procedure is ideal for patients with real fear or anxiety that prevents them from adapting the required dental procedure.

Track 12. Green Dentistry
Green dentistry is a vast topic that touches on everything from patient care to dental processes. Green dentistry means re-thinking dental processes and procedures, office administration and marketing, and office design and construction, using the tenets of green dentistry as a guide. The Eco-Dentistry Association defines green dentistry as practice that: Reduces waste and pollution; Saves energy, water and money; Incorporates high-tech innovations; Is wellness based.

Track 13. OSAS
Obtrusive Sleep Apnea Syndrome is a sleeping disorder marked by repetitive episodes of cessation of breathing, 10 seconds or longer, during sleep. During this time, the individual’s oxygen level drops, resulting in hypoxemia and sleep disruption. SAS was clinically recognized more than 30 years ago, but the health implications of this syndrome were barely known outside of the medical field. However, as more cases were uncovered, attention turned to the impact of SAS on the general health of individuals, such as the increased risk of cardiovascular disease, along with its oral implications such as periodontitis.

Track 14. SEO & SEO in Dentistry
Search engine marketing (SEM) is a form of Internet marketing that involves the promotion of websites by increasing their visibility in search engine results pages (SERPs) primarily through paid advertising. Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of affecting the visibility of a website or a web page in a web search engine's unpaid results—often referred to as "natural", "organic", or "earned" results. In general, the earlier (or higher ranked on the search results page), and more frequently a site appears in the search results list, the more visitors it will receive from the search engine's users, and these visitors can be converted into customers. SEO may target different kinds of search, including image search, local search, video search, academic search, news search and industry-specific vertical search engines.

Track 15. Dental Practice Management
Managing a dental practice takes a lot of finesse and planning. The success of a dental practice vastly depends on how capable the practice manager is. From staff management to patient management a wide variety of critically important tasks need to be executed with extreme care and skill. This session will unfold a few critical principles and laydown a handful of essential ground rules that dental practice managers and owners should look to abide by.
Pricing- The key to patient intake and retention
Staffing- The backbone of every practice.
Track 16. Dentistry
Dentistry is a branch of medicine that consists of the study, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases, disorders, and conditions of the oral cavity, commonly in the dentition but also the oral mucosa, and of adjacent and related structures and tissues, particularly in the maxillofacial (jaw and facial) area. Although primarily associated with teeth among the general public, the field of dentistry or dental medicine is not limited to teeth but includes other aspects of the craniofacial complex including the temporomandibular and other supporting structures. Dentistry is often also understood to subsume the now largely defunct medical specialty of stomatology (the study of the mouth and its disorders and diseases) for which reason the two terms are used interchangeably in certain regions.
Track 17. Dental Marketing
Marketing is key to the success of any business and dental practices are no exception. For a dental practice to grow, a single dentist should be seeing 24-50 new patients per month. And in order to attract new dental patients, a practice must offer a competitive product at competitive pricing, along with convenient quality services – all backed by a solid dental marketing plan.
Track 18. Dental Stem Cell
Dental pulp is the soft live tissue inside a tooth. Dental pulp contains stem cells, known as Dental Pulp Stem Cells. The finest Dental Pulp Stem Cells are found in a baby teeth or milk teeth. The stem cells from the milk teeth are 'mesenchyme' type of cells i.e. cells that have the ability to generate a wide variety of cell types like chondrocytes, osteoblasts and adipocytes. Chondrocytes are cells that have the ability to generate cartilage, which can play an important role in the treatment of arthritis and joint injuries. Osteoblasts are cells that have the ability to generate bones. Adipocytes are cells that have the ability to compose adipose tissue, specialized in storing energy as fat. In essence, dental stem cells can generate solid structures of the body such as bone, new dental tissue, cartilage and muscle. New research suggests the potential (currently under experimental research) to regenerate nerves. This is being studied further for use in dentistry and medicine.
One of the most important and exciting developments in dental diagnostic technology in the past decade has been the advent of 3D dental imaging. However, most people likely aren’t even aware of what 3D dental technology is- that’s how new it is! How is works?
Track 20. Dental Marketing Trends
A Dental Market trend is a perceived tendency of financial markets to move in a particular direction over time. These trends are classified as secular for long time frames, primary for medium time frames, and secondary for short time frames. Traders attempt to identify market trends using technical analysis, a framework which characterizes market trends as predictable price tendencies within the market when price reaches support and resistance levels, varying over time. A trend can only be determined in hindsight, since at any time prices in the future are not known.
Track 21. Dental Hygiene
Good oral/dental health translates to good health overall. Dental problems such as cavities or gum disease can impair your ability to eat and speak properly, cause pain and bad breath. And what many people may not realize, is that poor dental health can have a profoundly, negative affect on areas outside of the mouth, including your heart, diabetes, pregnancy and chronic inflammation, such as arthritis — to name a few.Some studies suggest that the bacteria in gum disease can travel to your heart and cause heart disease, clogged arteries or stroke. Gum infections, such as periodontitis, have been linked to premature births and low-birth weight in pregnant women. Diabetes reduces the body’s resistance to infection, making the gums more susceptible to infection, which can adversely affect blood sugar. And painful mouth sores, are common in people who have HIV.Practicing good dental hygiene is so important, because it can prevent these type of oral disease and dental problems. And prevention should be the primary focus.
