3M at the International Dental Show 2023, Cologne, March 14-18, 2023

Experiencing 3M Science in hall 4.2, stand G090

What if the dental tray always remained clearly structured, the flowable composite could be applied without bubbles and the impression was always accurate right away? Innovative products from 3M, developed based on latest scientific findings, enable all this. We will present many of these technologies that are embodied in our products and solutions at the upcoming IDS 2023.

At the 3M booth (hall 4.2, booth no. G090), visitors will find a Speaker’s Corner for short presentations and a hands-on area with three product groups available for thorough testing. On the opposite side, curious individuals are given exclusive insights into the digital future.

Facilitating daily work routines

You will have an opportunity to talk to our developers and try some of our products firsthand on solutions that have universal applications in direct restorative materials and impression taking. These universal solutions provide a tidy drawer and optimized procedures. Especially the flowable composites under our Filtek brand facilitate flawless application.

As the world leader in Impressioning solutions, you can see what it means to get precise results without detours. Visitors to the 3M booth will experience live how this is achieved including information about specific product properties and advantages which will be provided by product specialists.

Optimizing workflows

In short lectures, renowned speakers share useful information about their practical experience with the presented and further products, innovative techniques and specific procedures. Members of Style Italiano and users of the Bioclear method focus on direct restorative workflows, while tips for optimizing indirect restorative procedures are provided by the experts of Success Simplified. Proper light-curing techniques and measures take center stage in the presentations of BlueLight Analytics.

Cagatay Guler, Vice President 3M Oral Care Division responsible for EMEA said the following of the event: “We are extremely excited to meet our customers, partners and industry stakeholders again at the world’s biggest dental family gathering. The close partnership and dialogue with dental professionals have been the starting point of each 3M innovation, enabling 3M Science that is truly applied to life. We look forward to showcasing these science-driven solutions at the IDS, including a sneak peek into the future. We are also happy that this year we will be joined by some key technology partners in our booth.”

Inspiration for the dental office

We invite those who would like to learn more about the 3M innovations that allow users to master everyday challenges more easily to visit the 3M booth during the IDS, where details around the many of our upcoming innovations will also be revealed.

“We welcome our customers and partners from around the UK & Ireland to discuss our innovative solutions and to have a dialogue of trends and changes with our 100-strong team at our booth anytime during the event” added Petri Talvitie, Regional Division Leader North Europe.
