Today, there is no doubt that 'health' is one the most rapid developing sectors in the world economy. It is needless to say that 'dentistry' is in the ascendancy in health sector, and its importance is being understood better day by day. Hence, in recent years, dental sector has been a scene of vertiginous developments; scientificly, technologically and commercially.

All parts of the dental sector; dentists, dental technicians, academicians, companies (producer, dealer, importer) must keep up with this new period. In today's global economy, some places in the world getting more important than the others. That's for sure, Istanbul is one of them. We wish meet two shinning stars of the new period, "Dentistry" and "Istanbul".

We have a dream of, in a ten years period, making Istanbul one of the most important meeting locations of the dental world. We consider that there is no city in the world that deserves to meet West and East as much as Istanbul.

While remembering Napoleon Bonapart's words "if the world was only a country, Istanbul would have been its capital city", we are taking first steps of making Istanbul dental world's capital city by the organization of 'GREATIST'.

(GREATIST was being organized as Dental Istanbul Congress & Exhibition between 2002-2014.)


We have thought that by the help of central position of Istanbul between East and West and being a bridge between Asia and Europe, meeting in Istanbul would be easier then many places in the world.

In last four years, dental professionals from many countries, proved us that our dream is coming true. GREATIST 2015 registration desk recorded that 1.515 delegates have attended, 3.180 sector members have visited the exhibition totally.

Therefore, now, we can proudly say that GREATIST is second biggest dental congress in Turkey. Otherwise, the event is also the biggest non-associated dental congress of the country.

In this case, we would like to tell you a little about GREATIST project. Dental Tribune International (DTI), Turkish Dental Businessman Association (DISSIAD) and our company Vestiyer Publishing Group (VYG) have signed the agreement to create a new dental meeting platform in Istanbul. In this process, we have changed our event's name Dental Istanbul into GREATIST (“Dental Istanbul” was being organized between 2002-2014).

The main idea is that Istanbul is the center of the 4-hour-flight-circle. It means, from 3 continents and 56 countries, more than 1.6 billion people, can reach to Istanbul via 4 hours or less flight. Most of that people can come to Turkey without any visa requirement or can get “e-visa” easily. Therefore, we aim to create a new meeting point in Istanbul for dental world.


GREATIST is the name of several important dental events which bring local and international dental professionals together and provide them the opportunity to develop their knowledge, socialize and learn about new products. It also provides exhibitors and sponsors the opportunity to meet face to face dental professionals and give them detailed information about their products.

The exhibition is an important market place for members of dental sector to purchase new equipments and products. Local and international dental companies will exhibit their products for Turkish and foreign visitors. Visiting the exhibition area will be free of charge.
