2022 Annual Meeting – Halifax, NS

Welcome from the CARDP President

I am very proud and excited to invite you to take part in our Academy’s 28th Annual Scientific Meeting in Halifax, Nova Scotia on September 22 – 24, 2022. We are looking forward to being in person in 2022 as we reconnect with colleagues, friends and sponsors. Moreover, we are excited to welcome new and returning guests to our yearly Canadian Academy of Restorative Dentistry and Prosthodontics Annual Conference meeting. I can assure you this meeting will be exceptional on all fronts: Scientific Program, Social Activities, Venue and CARDP collegiality. All of this with our warm and fun Maritime Hospitality!

Our Scientific Committee Co-Chairs, Dr. Kilby Townshend and Dr. Joanne Thomas have assembled a premiere group of 14 Speakers with 15 Presentations. There is certainly a world-class lineup with a variety of topics under our general theme of “The Art and Science of Preserving the Natural Dentition”.

We will be centered at The Westin Nova Scotian, a newly renovated and ideally situated hotel for our events, near the Seaport Farmer’s Market, Boardwalk and Cruise Ship Terminals. The action-packed program also comes with exciting and well attended social events: welcome reception, partners program, wine and cheese reception, dinner at a local restaurant, and the President’s Party Friday night at the famous Pier 21 National Historic Site with Lobster and Ceilidh! 

You may invite your spouse, a friend or colleague to come with you, as it is a wonderful time of year with typically clear pleasant days and Fall Colors that transform our landscape. Take the opportunity to explore Nova Scotia’s South Shore, Annapolis Valley, Halifax-Dartmouth, Northern Nova Scotia or Cape Breton, PEI or New Brunswick. There are many beautiful areas to see pre or post meeting.

World-class quality CE, great learning and social events, and great food and fun combine for a successful and memorable time in Halifax!

Welcome to Halifax and enjoy!

Looking forward to seeing you,

Dr. Peter J. Thomson

CARDP 2022 President
