37th Australian Dental


Wednesday 17th - Sunday 21st May

Accompanying Persons


Designed for the partners of dental professionals attending Congress, The Accompanying Persons Programme is undergoing some exciting changes for the 2017 event.

The usual Accompanying Persons Lunch, which is typically held on the Friday of Congress, is being replaced by a Thursday meet-and-greet event where you'll be able to get to know your fellow attendees in a relaxed and convivial setting.

Join Matt Hopcraft, former MasterChef contestant and dentist, in a hands-on, small group cooking class and lunch event. Under his expert tutelage, guests will cook a selection of Matt’s favourite recipes, to be followed by a sit down lunch where everyone can enjoy the fruits of their labour! 

Another welcome addition is a tourism desk operated by The Best of Victoria which will remain open for the duration of Congress, allowing you to plan your own rewarding experience of the beautiful host city of Melbourne.

One thing that won't be changing is the Accompanying Person's Lounge where you will be able to help yourself to a range of hot and cold beverages while catching up with friends and colleagues from Australia, and quite possibly, around the world.
