The Australian Dental Congress, the largest CPD event of its kind in Australia, offers an exceptionally varied roster of learning opportunities for all delegates. From the main scientific programme and its allied programmes for the whole practice, which feature keynote speakers and an impressive number of local and international presenters, through to the smaller, always popular hands-on workshops and Lunch and Learn sessions, there is something for everyone.
