ADX exhibition returns to Brisbane

There was a welcome return of visitors to ADX Brisbane from October 27–29, signalling a return of the Queensland event to the dental calendar.

ADX is a great opportunity for dental professionals to network, attend industry sessions, top-up their CPD points and to see the latest products, services and innovations from members of the Australian dental industry.

ADX Brisbane was kicked off with the ADX Breakfast, opened by MC Tanya McRae who is Australian Dental Industry Association President and Director of Dental Installations (Australia).

The three days of seminars and presentations were co-located with the impressive trade show exhibition supported by the dental equipment and services industry.

Major equipment supplier, A-dec Australia, had one of the larger displays which attracted a high proportion of ADX visitors who took the opportunity to view the company's range of award-winning products.

A-dec Australia marketing manager, Simon Taggart, said the availability of some special bundled package deals for A-dec equipment helped pique interest in their popular dental units.

"We had considerable interest in our special offers, which currently include a $10,000 saving on the flagship A-dec 500 chair package and the choice of a $7,000 saving – or a free Acteon intraoral camera – with our A-dec 300; and a free Acteon intraoral camera with the premium mid-market A-dec 400 packages."

With the ATO's Temporary Full Expensing measure due to finish on 30 June 2023, Mr Taggart said now was a great time to start buying to ensure plenty of time for equipment delivery and installation to be completed, so dental practices can claim the benefit.

Seen for the first time in Brisbane was the A-dec 360™ Maintenance infection control system and end-to-end protocol for dental unit waterlines.

The A-dec 360 Maintenance display was fronted by A-dec's new Product Manager, Dr Wee Teo, who has a background in clinical trials and medical device product management.

The A-dec 360 Maintenance approach involves A-dec's proven ICX tablets for self-contained dental waterline reservoirs, together with a recently introduced digital water testing service and a new shock treatment, ICX Renew, developed for periodic dental unit waterline maintenance.

The new water testing service is available through authorised A-dec service dealers and ensures the effective operation of dental unit waterlines and elimination of contamination risks and potential spread of infection and odours from dental unit waterlines and aerosols.

ICX tablets are widely acknowledged as a convenient, affordable and effective way of ensuring dental unit waterlines are kept free from contamination, while the new ICX Renew shock treatment is recommended when the water quality test results exceed the water quality action level.

The Australian Dental Association (ADA) advises that water from the dental unit waterlines should contain less than 200 colony forming units/ml (CFU/ml), with ADA infection control guidelines recommending water testing every six months.

Mr Taggart said the water testing service should be introduced as part of the scheduled servicing of dental equipment in conjunction with other routine service calls such as steriliser validations.

"In addition to A-dec's focus on productivity, reliability and ergonomics, infection control is an area where we want to support dental professionals by offering a simple but comprehensive system for ensuring the health and safety of dental staff and their patients," Mr Taggart said.

Interstate dental professionals will have another opportunity to see the latest equipment and services at ADX Melbourne which will be held next March 30 to 1 April 2023.

ADX Sydney 2024 will be held at the International Convention Centre, Sydney Thursday 21 to Saturday 23 March 2024.
