At Insights 2024, exocad’s software sessions focused on education and state-of-the-art workflows with exocad’s DentalCAD, ChairsideCAD and exoplan. The new Elefsina 3.2 release series took centre stage.

“Our goal at Insights 2024 was to gather professionals along the dental spectrum to learn from each other. With hundreds of attendees, 54 industry partners and expert speakers from around the world, I can confidently say that we achieved that. We explored the future of digital dentistry and fresh approaches to collaboratively improve outcomes,” said Tillmann Steinbrecher, CEO at exocad.

During the two-day global event, dental technicians and clinicians passionate about digital workflows had access to career-accelerating insights from top industry experts.

The lectures from well-known thought leaders from across the dental world included a presentation on the power of avatars in dentistry by Dr Miguel Stanley, smile design insights from international experts like Dr Guilherme Saavedra and Dr Elaine Halley, and an exciting look at occlusion with Master Dental Technician (MDT) Edris Rasta.

Dr August de Oliveira lectured on 3D printing and exocad for the general dentist. A team approach, combining orthodontic and restorative treatment planning, led by the UK lab and dentist duo Kristina Vaitelytė and Dr Eimear O’Connell, concluded the event with exocad’s vision of the future.

“This event offered attendees the chance to see which technology and treatment approaches are available to achieve more predictable results, faster workflows, and ultimately higher patient satisfaction,” said Novica Savic, CCO at exocad.

Visitors were particularly interested in the outlook for future products and services that exocad presented at the event. The company previewed its next release of its implant planning software exoplan 3.2 Elefsina, and announced the inclusion of a new streamlined workflow for stackable guides. The company also provided its vision of the future previewing AI-based crown design and advanced visualisation within exocad’s Smile Creator.

Insights 2024 provided a welcome opportunity to network in person with exocad experts and the dental industry. Following a rigorous educational agenda, attendees had the opportunity to unwind at the end of day one at a celebration with a “pearly white” theme.

Moreover, exocad once again offered attendees the chance to participate in a charity drive by selling special, limited-edition Insights T-Shirts, with the collected funds going toward supporting dental nonprofit organisations.
