Presidents Message

2017 President’s message:

masterIt is with great pleasure that I invite you to attend the 25th Annual Scientific Meeting of the Canadian Academy of Restorative Dentistry and Prosthodontics. (CARDP). Our meeting in 2017 will be held in Vancouver, British Columbia from Sept 14th to the 17th, at The Pinnacle Harbourfront Hotel.

This year’s meeting promises to build on the successes of past meetings and focus on multidisciplinary aspects of dental treatment in a complex world. The Academy strives to meet and exceed the highest standard of scientific education. Our Focus is to provide leadership and learning in the field of dental restorations and rehabilitations. This will start with 1 Full Day and 1 Half Day, hands-on courses offered on Thursday Sept 14th that are always fully attended.  It will be followed by scientific sessions on Friday and Saturday delivered by some of the best speakers and clinicians in the world.

The Academy also promotes a very strong social component to the meeting, with the philosophy that life long learning is developed not only through dental education but also through strong bonds developed over years of social communication and interaction. Such social events are for example, on Thursday an opportunity to go Sturgeon fishing in the Fraser River, or perhaps enjoy a “hands on cooking class” and share the bounty with your classmates. Friday evening provides an opportunity to let loose, enjoy west coast cuisine and music at the President’s Party.  All are welcome and encouraged to come.

Thursday evening registration for the meeting is combined with a casual meet and greet over light appetizers and beverages, and you are encouraged to enjoy the cities finest restaurants with your friends afterwards. Guests are encouraged to come and meet Academy members and speakers.

CARDP offers by far the best evidence based lecture series available today.

Please join me in the beautiful west coast city of Vancouver on September 14, 15, 16th, 2017.

Warmest regards,


Dr. Les Kallos

CARDP President
