It is also an excellent opportunity to meet with colleagues from other cities and countries, commercials, developers, researchers, etc. To be able to exchange with them knowledge and good moments.

325 companies from 34 countries have been able to present their products and novelties along 19,331 square meters of exhibition.
At the exhibition fair of this 2016 edition we have been able to walk the stands of more than 300 companies located in more than 19000 square meters.

The reports presented at Expodental show revealing data, which allow a better understanding of the current situation of Dentistry in Spain. Data, for example, that 40% of Spanish citizens are not concerned about their oral health or that only half have gone to the dentist in the last year.
On the other hand, experts indicate that one of the main barriers of the visit to the dentist is the fear that carries a very important part of the population. That is why up to 45.5% of Spaniards prefer to consciously sacrifice their oral health rather than go to the dentist's office.
