Align Technology to host first Digital Innovations Forum to help futureproof dental profession


  Posted by: The Probe      19th October 2020

Align Technology has announced that it will host its first Digital Innovations Forum on 2nd and 3rd December 2020 from 5pm to 8pm (CET). The two-day virtual meeting will be delivered digitally to bring together an international panel of speakers to showcase the latest thinking about practice-related digital innovations. Their collective aim will be to demonstrate how practitioners can adopt improved digital workflows and more efficient treatment experiences – for their practices and ultimately for their patients.

To date, Align has invested over $1 billion (US) in research and development of its cutting-edge technology, including Invisalign aligners and iTero intraoral scanners to advance solutions for dental professionals and their patients. The company remains focused on elevating practices beyond their current position in their digitization and optimization efforts, assisting in futureproofing the dental profession.

Throughout the Digital Innovations Forum, the roster of speakers will explore why the shift to digital is happening right now, and why embracing digital technology is an essential part of a dynamic business. 

Bo Dahlbom, a lecturer on the importance of digitalisation for business and society, IT professor at the University of Gothenburg, chairman of the board of Activation, and a long-time adviser to the government on IT policy issues, will start the plenary session with an insight into ‘The Digital Revolution and Dental Care’.

Explaining the subject of his lecture, Bo Dahlbom commented: “Dentists could resist digitalisation if the whole profession remained conservative and did not easily embrace technological advances. But this is not reality. To remain ahead of the game, dental practitioners need to benchmark themselves against competition and see how the digital revolution is impacting on them.” He added: “In my keynote, I will talk about the changes in society and the similarities between dentistry and other industries. I will also highlight how powerful companies’ digital platforms shape the future and how Align Technology has this ambition to drive the dental industry forward”.
