Impressions from the Chicago MidWinter Meeting


Happy Leap Day!  It doesn't seem possible that another winter is almost over... heck even in Chicago this past week/weekend the temperature was in the 50's one day.

With the end of February, we come to the end of another Chicago MidWinter Meeting and I know that many of you like to get my impression of what the meeting was like.

This year attendance appeared to be about the same as last year.  Overall, the dentists I spoke with at the meeting are optimistic about our great profession and were there on the exhibit floor.  Many doctors were exploring purchasing options for new products and equipment.  Cone beam continues to be a hot topic in the profession as well as digital impression systems.  There also seems to be quite a bit of interest in the category of in-office mills that are open source and can be purchased separately from digital impression systems.

The manufacturers I spoke with reported good booth traffic with good sales of items across a wide variety of product categories.

So overall indications are a good future for the profession and I'm happy to report a great and informative Chicago MidWinter Meeting!
