Forum Overview


Welcome Message

The Association for Oral Health Therapists (Singapore) (AOHT) is honoured to once again host the Dental Hygienist and Therapist Forum (DHTF) in the 10th edition of IDEM Singapore. 

IDEM has been Singapore’s largest event on the dental calendar, where dental professionals keep up to date with the latest in research, methods, and technology. As oral health therapists’ ourselves, and with AOHT now having a dedicated Continuing Dental Education Committee, you can look forward to an exciting line-up of topics and speakers which will suit your taste buds.

With the success of the forum in the previous edition of IDEM, we now strive to bring to you even more interesting topics on dental hygiene and therapy from a myriad of speakers from both local and international thought leaders. With the rapid advancement of technology and research, we are sure that a foreign point of view will bring to us a varied point of view and challenges.

As the oral health therapy profession increases its presence, we have established ties with the regional associations, as well as an international body - the International Federation of Dental Hygienists (IFDH). We will work with them and determine the most current affairs in dental hygiene and therapy, and bring a dash of international flavour to the Dental Hygienist and Therapist Forum in Singapore.

Together with the IFDH, our counterparts from Australia, Indonesia and Malaysia will also be involved in an effort to add another dimension to this edition of IDEM.

Lastly, IDEM also serves as an excellent opportunity for catch-ups and professional exchanges with your colleagues, especially over lunch or simply exploring and testing the latest products and services at the trade exhibition!

The Association of Oral Health Therapists (Singapore) would like to thank the Organising Committee, Singapore Dental Association, and Koelnmesse for this opportunity to organise the Dental Hygienist and Therapist Forum.

I look forward to seeing you at IDEM 2018’s DHDT Forum!
