We attended the biannual International Dental Show (IDS) from March 12 to 16 2019 in Cologne, Germany, including a booth tour, the Straumann investor breakfast and expert and management conversations.
IDS is the landmark trade summit in dentistry with more than 140’000 visitors and ~2’300 exhibitors from around the world. Given the huge audience and the biannual frequency dental supply manufactures use the IDS traditionally to showcase their newest product innovations. However, this year we had the impression that introductions overall were more evolutionary. Digitalisation of dentistry remains the hot topic with intra oral scanners seen as gateway technology.
Did you know that clinical care is estimated to affect only 20% of our health well-being?
The conflict in the Ukraine is the first war in a fully interconnected world, wired more closely than ever before by trade, supply chains and financial markets. As such, while the drama is occurring within Ukraine’s frontiers, the consequences of Putin’s “special military operation” are being felt across the globe.
