BRISBANE, Australia: The Australian Dental Association has held the Australian Dental Congress in various capital cities of the country since 1907. The 36th congress will be held from 25 to 29 March 2015 at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre. In addition to the main scientific programme and exhibition, registrants will have the opportunity to attend a range of hands-on workshops and Lunch and Learn Sessions.

 

The 2015 congress will be held under the theme “The future is here” and will showcase the latest technology, materials and clinical techniques in dentistry.

According to the dental association, the high-quality scientific programme, which features over 100 speakers, experts in the dental profession in Australia and globally, was designed for dental practitioners at any level. The lectures and limited attendance hands-on workshops will cover almost 60 topics, including techniques in aesthetic dentistry and implant treatment, 2-D and 3-D diagnostic radiology, as well as restorative dentistry.

Moreover, multiple Lunch and Learn Sessions will be held each day during the lunch-break throughout the congress. These additional events will enable a more personalised continuing professional development experience with smaller groups and the ability to interact directly with presenters.

The exhibition will provide visitors with the opportunity to view, test, sample and experience new products and materials from a broad range of suppliers and industry leaders.

The event is sponsored by a number of dental companies, including Colgate-Palmolive, A-dec, Oral-B, SDI, DENTSPLY and Sirona. Dental Tribune International recently signed an exclusive agreement with the Australian Dental Association to be the official media partner of the congress. The publisher will have a booth at the exhibition and will be publishing a today trade show daily newspaper during the congress.
