The Scottish Dental Show 2023!

The Scottish Dental Show 2023 was a huge success! Thanks to all our exhibitors, sponsors, delegates, speakers, staff and venue for making it the best dental event in Scotland.

Running from 19-20 May, the Scottish Dental Show returned to its home of Braehead Arena, where we welcomed hundreds of dental professionals from across the country. With up to nine hours CPD available, more than 50 speakers and 60 sessions and more than 130 exhibitors available across the two days, it was an unmissable event for anyone in the dental profession. 

The education programme this year covered all GDC Highly Recommended and Recommended topics, with talks ranging from dental therapy to becoming a mobile hygienist, there was something for every member of the dental team. We were also joined by Jason Leitch, National Clinical Director for the Scottish Government, for a special guest interview on COVID and the future of the profession.

Ann Craib, Advertising Sales and Events Manager for Scottish Dental, said: “It was fabulous seeing everyone back again this year and we have had so many forward bookings for 2024 already. This really is the number one dental show for professionals in Scotland.”

Will Peakin, Editor of Scottish Dental magazine and education programme manager for the event, said: “It was a fantastic two days. Thank you to all the delegates, to our brilliant speakers and to the incredible team responsible for staging the event. We’re looking forward to 2024!”

Stand bookings are already under way for the Scottish Dental Show 2024, which will take place in the Braehead Arena on 31 May and 1 June. Contact Ann Craib at
