Know-How Tours: Top dental practices open doors to IDS visitors

Dental Tribune International

COLOGNE, Germany: After the success of the Know-How Tours in 2015, the organisers of the International Dental Show (IDS) have announced their return this year. Interested visitors will once again have the opportunity to view two of the most prestigious dental practices in Cologne and learn how the respective practices apply the latest treatment concepts using their state-of-the-art equipment.

The first tour, on Wednesday, 22 March, will take the participants to the Alamouti & Melchior practice in Cologne. Under the title of “Dentistry 3.0”, the practice owners will guide their visitors through their state-of-the-art equipped rooms. They will be introduced to the latest concepts applied in the practice, such as use of the microscope, CBCT and laser treatment.

On Thursday, 23 March, the second tour, titled “Dentistry—Made in Germany”, will take place at the PAN Klinik, where participants will be shown through another top-rated and highly modern practice. They will learn about studying dentistry in Germany and how the practice has gone paperless with information technology systems, deals with patient management and supplemental insurance, and applies 3-D technology in everyday work.

Both tours will start at 4.45 p.m. from the western entrance of the exhibition centre. Participants will be transferred to the practices and be welcomed at a finger food reception before being shown the practice and attending a talk, which is expected to last until 8 p.m.

The tours are restricted to 25 people. Interested dental professionals can contact Nora Witte ( for tour details and to register.
