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 program and its allied programs for the whole practice, which feature keynote speakers and an impressive number of local and international presenters, through to the smaller, always popular workshops and lunchtime sessions, there is something for everyone.

Workshops Workshops


A mix of presentation and practical application on a range of topics, the dentist-only workshops provide you with a hands-on learning experience (numbers limited to 20 per workshop).
