Theme: Exploring the future in Dental Pediatrics and Dentistry


Renowned Speakers


Pediatric dentistry encompasses a variety of disciplines, techniques, procedures, and skills that share a common basis with other specialties, but are modified and adapted to the unique requirements of infants, children, adolescents, and those with special health care needs. By being an age-specific specialty, pediatric dentistry encompasses disciplines such as behaviour guidance, care of the medically and developmentally compromised and disabled patient, supervision of orofacial growth and development, caries prevention, sedation, pharmacological management, and hospital dentistry, as well as other traditional fields of dentistry. These skills are applied to the needs of children throughout their ever-changing stages of development and to treating conditions and diseases unique to growing individuals.

The target audience in Pedodental-2018 includes, but is not limited to:

•         Pediatric dentists.

•         Paediatricians and nutritionists

•         General dental practitioners and other dental specialists.

•         Dental Students and researchers

•         Government agencies and health care policy makers.

•         Individuals interested in the oral health of children

Market Analysis

According to census figures, the next fastest growing segment of the U.S. population is the group under 18. By 2020 this segment is expected to top 80 million.

But this rise brings increasing challenges as well, notably more caries. In the United States, 28% of preschoolers have untreated caries, compared to 14% of school-aged children. Approximately 4.5 million kids are estimated to suffer from early childhood caries. By the time they leave high school, it's estimated 80% of students have untreated caries.

The consequences of untreated caries - diseases and a variety of complex issues - are well known. No wonder their incidence among American children has been called a silent epidemic.

What is impeding efforts to care for these children is the sheer imbalance of the numbers. Despite escalating population gains, only 5,000 dentists specialize in pediatric care. Put another way, 178,000 dentists in the United States don't have special training to treat children.

Increase in Income & Dental Health Awareness

According to the report, rising disposable incomes of patients coupled with growing dental care awareness will drive the dental equipment market in the developing Asian countries.

In the developed regions of North America and Western Europe, market growth will be driven mainly by the aging population possessing a desire to retain natural tooth structure.

In 2011, North America was the leader in terms of market share and is expected to maintain its leadership position in 2018. This can be attributed to the rapid adoption of advanced technologies such as CAD/CAM, along with relatively higher dental-health awareness across the population.
