- IDEC 2019 Continues to Develop into A Key Event for the Indonesian Dental Industry

The Premier Dental Exhibition and Conference in Indonesia, the Indonesia Dental Exhibition & Conference (IDEC), was officially opened by the Secretary General of the Indonesian Ministry of Health, drg. Oskar Primadi today at the Jakarta Convention Center (JCC) today.

The event, organised by the Indonesian Dental Association (PDGI) in collaboration with Koelnmesse and PT. Traya Eksibisi Internasional will take place from 13 – 15 September 2019. Occupying an area of 5,000 m2 in the Assembly Hall at Jakarta Convention Center (JCC), IDEC 2019 will play host to 232 exhibiting brands and companies from 18 countries, and 3 national pavilions from China, Germany and South Korea.

“The Indonesian government has set a goal to be caries free by 2030 through our government’s National Dental and Oral Health Action Plan. We recognise that it is essential to place greater importance on promoting dentistry to improve the countries oral health and combat chronic diseases,” shared Secretary General drg. Oskar Primadi, Indonesian Ministry of Health at IDEC 2019 Opening Ceremony.

As part of the government’s plan, they have developed and implemented programs to improve the skills of dental professionals across Indonesia. These programs include increasing the number of continuing education opportunities for dental practitioners in eastern Indonesia, regulating the distribution of dentists in remote areas and providing dental scholarships to aspiring dental students. However, Indonesia currently faces the issue of a low supply of dental equipment, which limits the pace of improvement of public health.

Speaking on the challenges faced in the Indonesian dental market, Chairman of Indonesian Dentist Association (PDGI), Dr. drg. Sri Hananto Seno, Sp. BM., MM., FICD shared, “The current local dental industry is only able to meet about 10% of the needs of dentists in Indonesia when it comes to dental equipment and materials needed. The remaining 90% is mostly made up through imported dental equipment, materials and tools from international companies. The lack of sufficient access to dental equipment contributes to the difficulty in providing quality dental care in many areas in Indonesia”.

“There is a huge demand for the latest dental equipment and materials in Indonesia,” said Chairman of IDEC 2019, drg. Diono Susilo, MPH, “IDEC aims to help international exhibitors understand more about the local market and form strategic partnerships with Indonesian companies to further develop the dental market.”

In conjunction with the exhibition, IDEC 2019 will also present a series of scientific conference sessions, hands-on workshops and demonstrations expertly delivered by 18 speakers with vast experience in areas including rehabilitation and oral surgery, endodontics, orthodontics, periodontology, various innovations in self-litigation, dental photography, pediatric dentistry and more. “Besides showcasing the latest dental health equipment, IDEC 2019 is also recognized as an essential platform for dental professionals in Indonesia to come together and learn and upgrade their dental skills. The show provides new updates in the field of dentistry and simultaneously offers networking opportunities for dental professionals,” said Dr. Seno.

President Director of Traya Eksibisi Internasional, Bambang Setiawan hopes that IDEC 2019 will continue to develop into a key event for the Indonesian dental industry and make an impact in improving the overall state of oral health in Indonesia.

Optimism for the success of IDEC 2019 was also expressed by Mathias Kuepper, Managing Director of Koelmesse Pte, Ltd. who saw an increase in the number of exhibiting countries from IDEC 2017. “The international presence at IDEC has grown more varied with 18 countries being represented at the exhibition this year.
