CEAM – Center of Excellence for Advanced Microscopy
CEAM was established in October 2018 as the first of its kind in the South East Asian Region. The simulation facility consists of 11 Carl Zeiss dental microscopes and 21 Nissin dental training simulators with the capability of producing realistic dental treatment scenarios in a comfortable learning environment.
The primary aim is to encourage, inspire and educate dentist and the public as to the benefits of microscopic dentistry and to grow from the combined wealth of experiences between our invited educators, lecturers and participants. Our mission is to serve the dental profession and the public by being a source of scientific, evidence-based information and an advocate on the advantages of the operating dental microscope and associated operative techniques in microscopic dentistry.
Microscopic dentistry continues to shed new light to challenge the established legacy concepts, theories and techniques in dental practice and dental education. The establishment of this center of microscopy will play an important role in creating and encouraging the sharing of ideas and advancement of techniques among the dental professionals dedicated and committed to quality treatment. In this way, we feel that microscopic dentistry is an arch that connects all the specialties of dentistry together and reverses the natural tendency for the individual specialties to drift apart.
