The Regional Dental Meeting and Exhibition (RDM&E) in conjunction with International Dental Conference of Sumatera Utara (IDCSU) is the largest international dental conference in Sumatera Utara which is held by The Faculty of Dentistry, Universitas Sumatera Utara. The conference was previously held 8 (eight) times before, in 2001, 2003, 2006, 2009, 2011, 2014, 2017, and 2020 respectively. These events are international meetings that involved participants and speakers from Indonesia and other countries in
Europe and Asia.

The growth in utilization of natural resources and advanced digital technology is rapidly changing the world nowadays, as well as transforming the field of dentistry. It requires dental professionals to keep updating their knowledge and skill to increase their competence and professionalism in this digitalization era. Therefore, we believe that the 9th RDM&E in conjunction with IDCSU will provide an insightful discussion for our participants.
