BDIA Dental Showcase 2017 – Post Show Update

Following 3 great days at the BDIA Dental Showcase, the Blue Sky People team are busy following up with candidates and clients alike this week after a good number of new enquiries and lots of interesting discussions.

We met with clients across the dental sector from independent practice owners to larger group businesses as well as customers across the dental supply chain.

You may well have heard but we also had current clients meeting prospective candidates on the stand throughout and both Smile Together and JDRM Dentalcare had successful meetings throughout the 3 day Showcase.

Several themes emerged throughout the show (apart from the sore feet among those of us not used to standing for 3 days straight).

  • There are fantastic business opportunities in this rapidly changing industry landscape with some highly adaptable businesses quick to realise those opportunities.
  • There is a significant shortage of high quality staff across clinical dentistry and the dental supply chain alike.
  • There are lots of talented clinicians and commercial staff with dental industry experience actively looking for the opportunity to optimise their talent.


During the course of the show, I met with a number of innovative, forward thinking dental businesses (practices and suppliers) all of which have identified unique and attractive opportunities for their own business.

Not unsurprisingly we also met with a good number of highly talented clinical and commercially aware candidates who see lots of ongoing recruitment in the market, but who are looking for specific opportunities to enhance their careers and develop their skills.

Our job is to put the two sides together – identifying those forward thinking, creative and innovative businesses with bright futures and introduce them to those talented, motivated and enthusiastic individuals who will seize the opportunity for advancement.

Thank you to those of you who took the time to come and meet us to discuss your particular projects. We’re excited by the opportunity to work with you.
