International Dental Exhibition and Congress opens in Hanoi

The 11th Vietnam International Dental Exhibition and Congress (VIDEC) opened in Hanoi on August 22, offering a range of dental products by the world’s leading producers.

Speaking at the conference, Minister of Health Nguyen Thi Kim Tien highlighted the progresses made by Vietnam’s dental sector, which, she said, has covered both the big cities and remote areas of the country.

There have been various preventative dental programmes launched for children in many cities and provinces nationwide, she added.

The Vietnamese dental sector has intensified personnel training and technical transfer at a grassroots level, while also enhancing cooperation with international organisations, Tien said.

The Vietnam International Dental Exhibition and Congress offers a good opportunity for dentists and scientists to share experience, cutting-edge technologies, and new information in dentistry, the minister noted.

She asked the domestic dental sector to step up its collaboration with international organisations in order to promote the development of preventative dentistry, as well as encourage the application of state-of-the-art technologies in diagnosis and treatment.

The congress, which lasts from August 20-24, brings together hundreds of delegates from 25 countries worldwide.

With 350 booths, the exhibition introduces dental products by leading producers from Europe, the US, Japan, and other countries.
