"Looking at scanners has been a priority this year, and it’s been a good opportunity to compare products. Attending DTS so important to stay up-to-date with what’s new. Stuck in the surgery or lab you just don’t get the chance to have these meaningful business conversations."
Harj Singhrao, Principal Dentist, Newbridge Dental Care & Alexander Mensikov, Dental Lab Owner, AM Dental Lab

"We’re here to spend. This year we are looking at denture products, scanning, and any new machinery. We’ve also signed up for a few training courses. The conference programme is a great education platform, and there’s been interesting CAD/CAM sessions. This is the only show we attend as it ticks all the boxes for keeping up-to-date." 
Michael Doel, Lab Owner, Michael Doel Lab & Tony Oswin, Dental Lab Owner, Unique Dentures

"I think the co-location with Dentistry is quite novel and it has made the event a lot better. I come to speak to the suppliers – I manage labs so it’s a good opportunity to come and talk to the reps. I’m always impressed with the range of products here. Tomorrow I’m going to come back and pick up some CPD. I always recommend the shows to my colleagues, and bring as many with me as I can." 
Gregg Clutton, Technical Team Lead, Manchester Metropolitan University
