Spanning almost six square miles of exhibit space, the 2013 International Dental Show (IDS) was a spectacle in every way, with more than 2,000 exhibitors luring attendees to their elaborate booth displays with entertainment, cappuccino and cocktails, and the newest and up-and-coming advancements in dentistry.

Live surgeries. Magicians on stilts. Space-age technology. And dazzling developments in digital dentistry. This must be the IDS.

Innovation is at the heart of this five-day meeting held every other March in Cologne, Germany. This year, more than 120,000 visitors got a first-hand look at how digital dentistry continues to revolutionize our profession.
